Neat -- Stitching up a cut with BUTTONS
So Cimmi cut her leg open the other day leaving a flap of skin dangling. By the time the vet cleaned it up and got rid of the dead skin around, and because it was also on a joint (fetlock) she used buttons to stabilize it and keep the tension down. Bonus: The stitches can't become ingrown.
We had to rewrap it today so I snapped a picture really quick. Silly me didn't think much of it (never had to have a horse stitched up before) but when my coach/BO was helping me rewrap she said it was the weirdest, but coolest thing she has seen in a long time. What are some weird/cool vet tricks you've seen
