    Horse getting caught in fence

    I have heard really good things about a product called "Underwoods" I think you can google it. It prevents proudflesh I believe. You still have him on Antibiotics right? They use SMZ's a lot for wound infections that you can dissolve in their feed.

    The things a horse can get hurt on, bad wound pic

    The vet hasn't looked at it at all?? Did your vet suggest a Tetnus shot? Can you cold hose it for the swelling? I personally would try Banamine for a few days because I think it seems to work better then Bute for certain things. Are the fly's staying away from the injury? If not, ask your vet...

    Best quality & safest dog foods?

    Brute 23 Thanks for the post on pet foods. Wouldn't it be nice if some day we could know exactly what goes into our pet food we buy and the labels would tell us in a language that people would understand?
