Chico update

This is how Chico's wound is looking tonight after 5 days of cleaning, bandaging and systemic antibiotics and anti-inflammatories.  It's looking better!  We are still not quite out of the woods yet though...the cleft near the top that contacted bone is not yet sealed over and there is definite risk of him developing a bony sequestrum...though that can be fairly easily removed later on with a simple standing surgery.

Glad he's doing better!

Looks much better! I'm glad.

I get to see a horse today that had a large area of bone exposed on his leg about the size of my palm. By the time the owner found it, the wound was full of maggots. It's been healing for about a month now, I can't wait to see the difference. I hope it's much better.
