This is a twelve year old Quarter Horse gelding with a shoulder wound.
This horse was treated the way that these type injuries are usually treated at Step Ahead Farm.
Our typical method of treating shoulder wounds:
Design a bandage that will keep the primary bandage (the one actually on the wound) in place.
Keep the raw tissue clean and MOIST.
Like most body wounds, this wound healed by contraction.
Expect to achieve cosmetic healing.
Products Utilized:
Eclipse Wound Wash (topically), Lacerum/Eclipse Ointment (on epithelial tissue),
Adequate bandage (to maintain moist wound surface)
No Antibiotics were given to this horse.
