|This wound happened to a 3 year old thoroughbred filly who ran a three inch wide board through the lower
portion of her neck to the extent that only the skin on the opposing side remained.
The recurrent laryngeal nerve was severed resulting in a breathing problem that rendered her impossible to
race, but she is currently in foal and may prove to be a valuable broodmare.
Wound repeatedly flushed with Eclipse Wound Wash; wound healed in a very short time without any
