Raw honey for treating scratches - before and after pics!
I have been battling scratches on Harley's legs for about three years now. Seriously, nothing seems to make them go away. He has huge raw patches, summer, winter, doesn't matter. It's not even seasonal anymore. Until just recently.
I am using a different vet who is actually an equine vet (local vets are livestock vets). He comes from out of town and is a lot more $$$ but he cured Harley's chronic diarrhea last spring, and always seems to have new ideas that work. So I had him out to look at Harley and he suggested treating with raw honey and putting him on Omega Alpha's Immune Plus which is a natural herbal supplement. I only had to apply the honey for about 6 days - I would slather it on, cover with a large gauze pad, sometimes two, and use vet wrap to keep everything in place. I would wash his legs, allow them to dry, and change it daily. We have tried everything we could before, from sprays to washes to creams to home remedies without any luck. But WOW, did this ever work!
Here is his leg on August 27th and the same leg today, September 12th, so about two weeks later.
