How To Treat Wire Cut On Horse De-Gloved Leg Injury
Photos Of Horse With Wire Cut & De-gloved Leg
The mare in the photos got hung up in wire and was treated by a veterinarian for two months with no healing taking place. The owner was using a veterinarian prescribed wound compound. During the two month treatment period, the wound did not contract, and granulation tissue was exuberant. The owner discovered PF Wonder Salve could not believe how quickly things changed once she started applying it. This series of photos was taken over 27 days! More photos coming soon as we get updates. The owner is thrilled with the results, and is riding the mare.
How To Treat De-Gloved Leg Injury
If you’re dealing with a de-gloved injury with exposed bone, tissue granulation over the bone needs to occur asap. The most effective way we’ve experienced is by applying a sugar paste (sugar/saline) to area and wrap. Do not use sugardine (sugar/betadine), as this delays healing. Also, get your horse on veterinarian-prescribed course of antibiotics. You don’t want to use a common antibiotic like penicillin when there may be a more serious culture in the wound. As granulation tissue begins to fill in, apply PF Wonder Salve on the outer edges of area. Once the area fills into desired level, apply PF Wonder Salve.
Eliminate & Prevent Excessive Tissue Granulation
As you can see in the first photo, prior to using PF Wonder Salve, the wound has excessive tissue granulation. PF Wonder Salve eliminated the proud flesh, and rapidly closed the area with no white hairs, no scarring.
How To Apply PF Wonder Salve
Clean area with water or saline solution. Dry area with paper towel. Paint thin layer of salve on area. Allow salve to slightly dry, then bandage. Avoid excessive hosing, or hydrotherapy. Cold hosing actually slows down healing and promotes proud flesh/excessive tissue granulation. Do not use any other products. After initial cleaning and debridement, do not use with peroxide, povidone-iodine, or Chlorhexidine on area as these are damaging to healthy tissue.
