Will a wound push all debris out with poulticing?
Last week my horse got a small piece of wood through his coronet band on a downward angle after getting his foot stuck in a hole. The vet pulled the wood out, cleaned it up and wrapped it. She told me to take it off after a couple of days and re-wrap and poultice which I did yesterday. It looked pretty good, at least better than my imagination had been running riot over the two days it was wrapped.
I put on a fresh poultice with manuka honey and betadine last night and changed it again today. When I took it off I found another smaller piece of wood had been pushed out. The vet had hoped she got it all out in one go but obviously not unfortunately. I am wondering if with the poulticing it should hopefully get anything else out that may still be in there? I guess that's a hard question to answer and only time will tell but I'm wondering if anyone else had has experience with horses getting similar injuries?
