    My horse severed his extensor tendon back in December, the tendon itself has healed as well as can be expected. The problem is the wound itself is not healing, it has healed some, but it is very slow and seems to have stalled. At one point he had an e-coli and staph infection going on. It has...

    Ok, first of all, this horse is *not* mine. Long story short, a friend took some horses from an ex because they were all mistreated and looked awful. all were boney, skinny, and had a sickness going on (lots of mucusy discharge) and so much more. i come over to help care for the horses any...

    Last summer my gelding cut open the heel of his front right foot on the fence. My barn owner was very helpful in treating it. It took a LONG time to heal because of it's location. Proud flesh developed but we got rid of most of that as well. It healed as a bump with a scar. Now to the important...

    I discovered yesterday that my horse (TB mare) has an open shoe boil (capped elbow) on her front left elbow. I've never dealt with this kind of wound before and I'm wondering how it will heal? The boil came out of nowhere and opened up on it's own. The opening is about 2" long and seems...

    My friends gelding came up with this wound on the corner of his mouth. We thought possibly it could be from the bit, but it definitely is not. It has gotten more swollen and bigger within the last few weeks. Vet said it was skin cancer and we have started him on Chemo shots. Anyone seen or...

    I am just worried that I am not doing the correct thing or if there is anything else I can do because it looks like it has gotten larger. First info on Shaggy: a six year old paso fino gelding redish in color, we feed him two flakes alfalfa for two feedings a day and he is in a "pasture"...

    My gift horse has a deep wound in the corner of his mouth. His past teenage rider apparently tore it with the bit. It has been there for at least three weeks, and is still quite swollen, and an open wound. I wash it out daily, and slather it with tri care ointment. It was already treated for...

    Wednesday June 27th I came home to my 2 year old filly Areion expecting to go on a short light ride...that didn't quite happen. I pulled into the driveway and wasn't greeted as I normally am, didn't think too much about it and ran into the house to change out of my work clothes and into my play...

    My little arab mare was cut a while ago (bout a month) on barbed wire. -- A nasty gash just above the front right hoof... She has been seen by a vet, and taken care of pretty well; the wound has mostly closed up... all except for the surface, which is still just a scab that periodically comes...
