So my horse got a small cut, I know this is being a little crazy but I put peroxide on it, and triple antibiotics. It's just a small cut, but it was sort of an open wound, and I didn't want it to get infected... do you think I went a little over bored? Should I should have just left it?
Any cut is worth cleaning...and then leaving alone to heal. Peroxide is not the best and is actually a poor anticeptic. Our cut routine is wash with antibacterial soap/water, wipe with betadine, apply your triple antibiotic (e.g. neosporin), and leave it be, only checking for any signs of infection.
But yah, it should heal pretty soon here, it's not deep, but I didn't want her getting infection!
