MARE'S WOUND NOT HEALING AFTER 5 MONTHS - HELP NEEDED ASAP
Hi I am really hoping you can help me with my mares wound. It happened 5 months ago. She got caught in a barbwire fence and stripped her back legs. It has all nearly healed bar this one part which got proud flesh. We have bandaged it for months under the vets treatment and ended up having to take the bandage off as she was getting another wound due to the bandaging near the proud flesh wound and the vet feared it may become one huge wound. This meaning that the skin hadn't come together as much as any of us would have liked but we were between a rock and a hard place with what to do. Unfortunately she is a warmblood and hasn't been the quietest in the park. The wound has become big again, but no proud flesh, but I fear that the damage is too great and feel the vet is starting to think the same, and fear the skin is dying, meaning it may never heal. We are now gonna try her a month on box rest, which I do not think is going to go down well with her at all but I will have to persivere for as long as I can, but if it doesn't heal she will have to be destroyed. I just can't bear the thought of that. She is my black beauty dream horse, she is only five I have had her since she was 3, she isn't even fully broken yet, it jsut can't happen to her. I have decided to look for other medicines, herbal natural types and go that route and came across you through a google search. I have attached a picture of her wound.
