I will look into that, thanks.

The good news is that after two days wrapped with ichthammol (maybe some day I will learn how to spell it!) it appears much better. Going to keep that on for a few more days and hopefully things will start progressing in the right direction.

I can't find Underwood's locally, or seem to find a place that can ship it to me for a reasonable price and a fairly reasonable speed.

My vet tech friend suggested Vetericyn, and my instructor suggested Schreiner's. I am however worried about potentially getting kicked with the Schreiner's as I was warned that it stings. Anybody have any experience with either of these products?

I've used Vetericyn for smaller wounds. I don't believe it stings, but I haven't noticed if it actually speeds the healing process. I use it more as a disinfectant.

I've had the same experience as 3Horses.......fine for small wound, but (knock on wood!), I've not had to use in on a larger wound. It's not suppose to sting and seems to be a good disinfectant.

Schreiner's does sting a bit. Not as bad as hydrogen peroxide, but I have almost been kicked and have gotten into a cut on my own hand. But it does wonders.

My horse Red also had a cut down to the bone recently.

I'm surprised the vet okay'ed you to hand walk her, or even trot her. Personally, I would NOT be doing any sort of exercise with your horse right now. She'd be on the stall rest. The more she moves, the more the wound moves, the slower it is going to heal.

For a deep bone injury, I would also personally still be wrapping it.

MINIMIZE how much you cold hose it. Any stimulation like that will encourage over-granulation (AKA proud flesh). Therefore, if you wrap it, the wound stays clean and you don't have to mess with cleaning it.

For 2 months on my boy, he was on stall rest and I changed the bandage every 2 days. I used silver sulfdiazine on the wound. When needed, I used hydrocortisone cream on any proud flesh. BAndaging was also a good idea in my case because he got hurt at the end of August and the flies were just nuts. Keeping it wrapped was an easy solution to keep the flies off it.

When I transitioned to finally being done bandaging it, I tried Underwoods and I was NOT happy with the swelling reaction I got on the wound. I know there are those that speak volumes about Underwoods but I was not impressed, and thought the general wound cream I had worked much better.
