Have been soaking twice daily,ithmol, wrapping and boot. Don't see a bruise, no sign of abscess yet. Severe frozen ground. He isn't prone to abscesses- yeah. My farrier feels it is a bad maybe deep bruise. He will be out Tue. or Wed. to poke around. Any thoughts? I have been soaking since last Thurs. the 28th of Jan. How long before I notice bruise feeling better or abscess signs. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. He is still ouchy, but walking better. However, with no wrap on it, he is more ouchy.
