MY vet hates the use or peroxide , it dries the wounds out making them longer to heal . Good luck and sorry about your mare

Veterycin spray will help you clean it out and heal the wound. I swear by the stuff...

One is closer to God's heart on a horse than anywhere else on earth!

Granulex helps healing by dissolving necrotic tissue, allowing healthy tissue to grow in it's place. We used it on our dog after he tangled with a bobcat (and lost). It really worked wonders on the horribly infected wounds he had. Works the same way on a horse.

My filly, Rain, stuck her foot somewhere it didn't belong and had a really deep scratch/gouge just above her front hoof. Daughter was in tears, ready to load her up and rush her to the vet. I stopped by TSC on my way home and picked up some Underwoods and said we'd try that and if it didn't look like it was healing well after a couple of days, we'd take her to the vet. There was nothing to stitch, so waiting wouldn't hurt. After a couple of days, it was obvious that she was healing, even though her leg was a bit swollen. Within a couple of weeks, Rain was nearly completely healed. The wound now has even haired over and you can't see where it was. Underwoods is great stuff, and although a bit pricey to buy, it's not particularly expensive to use.

We've used Pink Lady on minor wounds and not so minor sunburn. It worked well for situations that Underwoods or Granulex would not have been good for. Pink Lady is also good for hives and itchy insect bites. You just have to live with the fact that your horse will look like you've splashed Pepto Bismol on it...

i totally agree Dee that Granulex is THE great stuff! used it on a rooster that had been attacked and mauled by the neighbors dog and he was at deaths door Had maggots in the wound it was GROOOOOSS Poor baby now he is healed up looking GORGEOUS and even had FEATHERS ALL OVER THE PLACE ON HIS BACK THAT HE WAS chewed up. not to mention my little Arab. she got TORN up in a barbwire fence something terrible, terrible wounds now she barely has a hairline scar. that stuff is a miracle worker IMO.

Vetericyn is a great product for all wounds and injuries, I used on my own severe cat bite (im a groomer) I was bitten by a 30lb cat and it ripped a huge triangle shaped gash in my finger. It was really bad! Soaking in epsom salt water and spraying with Vetericyn & taking cephelexin (sp) for infection and it healed up nicely with no major pain at all which is suprising with a cat bite. They also make a Vetericyn eye gell which is the same as spray but sometimes its easier to use in certain areas that your horse doesnt want to be sprayed in such a the eyes or maybe the face. It didn burn either which was great. I also use in on all of my animals, and this year we have had several cuts and wounds on our horses and they have healed up really nice with little or no scaring.
