Is it better to bandage a wound or not? We have a horse that rolled too close to our wire fence ( not barbed ) She got her legs caught and also was getting zapped by the electric wire we had on the fence. She has some pretty good cuts on both back legs(hock area) and they are swollen today. It doesn't seem like their is any real bad damage inside the leg since she will bear weight on them. She walked pretty well yesterday, but today she is a little swollen and more sore. My daughter has been cleaning them and salving them at least 2 times a day. It happened 2 days ago and we have her stalled. We just started her on antibiotics in case of any infection starting - the fence was not rusty or anything but we thought it might help if the cuts got contaminated from anything. So I am curious what has worked for any of you and what has not worked?
