Answered by Dorothea Pehl 2 years ago.
Your doing great but I would switch over to furacin and keep it wrapped and clean. Once it becomes more superficial I would switch to furacin spray and leave the area open. I don't know what a pretty bad cut is. What you may call bad, I may call nothing so really its a tuff call on my behalf but I would definitely be using furacin ointment for awhile. Answered by Nisha Curtsinger 2 years ago.
I had almost the same issues as you do. We were financally strapped for money one year but our horse has an injury. I called my vet and was told to keep the wound uncovered and to run cold water on the are twice a day for 7 days. You can put any medication thats OTC on it that aids in healing. Other then that there is not much more you can do. Answered by Johnathan Backen 2 years ago.
First thing to ask yourself & assess, is how deep is the cut & is it hurting the horse?...having dealt with horses most of my life, here is my suggestion...DAILY...spray out the wound with cool water...this will get rid of debris & keep proud flesh from forming...if the wound isn't too deep, put furacin spray or ointment on it several times a day, alternating with lime every 3rd day..this will help dry it up, promote healing....don't apply a bandage, unless it's deep...you want air getting too it to heal unless your horse is standing in mud.......if it is deep, keep it clean the same way &watch for infection.... apply your meds & wrap it with a large telfa pad on the wound, a sterial surgical pad over that & vet wrap...there is some stuff called "Granual-X...works wonders for that will help it to fill in from the inside out...just keep it open if you use this....also your horse would probably benefit from 30cc's of Pen-G daily for 5 days...give 15cc's in alternate sides of the neck twice a day...hope all this helps...oh..there is also a med called "Buddy Underwood's"...nasty stuff, but if you can find it where you live, USE IT!...forget the other stuff...it's the best thing in the world for cuts on horses..just follow the directions...unfortuneatly it isn't everywhere... Answered by Debbra Latta 2 years ago.
Is the wound very deep? Because maybe it needs to be stitch up. Uhm, if that's not the case then you'll have to disinfect it at least one time a day. Also change the bandage when it gets dirty. Keep the wound clean at any possible moment and check every time, when you change the bandage, its healing process. When the wound gets inflamed then you'll have to get a vet quick! Answered by Tim Keyon 2 years ago.
you should not have a horse if you cannot afford it. they are a lot of work and money and if you can't afford to treat it then you may be putting it's life on the line. you need to spray it out every day, and banage it. if the cut gets worse then take it to the vet no matter what. Answered by Vaughn Delanoche 2 years ago.

Has anyone every heard of using extremely diluted bleach for hot on dogs?
I met a vet tech and groomer at a dog park and they told me the secret to healing hot spots on dogs ( quickly) is to use an extremely diluted solution of bleach and water like 1/2 teaspoon of bleach to 12 ounces of water. Has anyone else out there ever heard of such a thing?

There are two ways to get rid of it. First, Furacin cream or Polyfax Cream from any medical store Get cicatrin powder or furacin powder from any medical store Mix these very well and apply paste on the affected areas. Two to three times a day. Second Get vaseline pure petroleum jelly from any medical or general or super store and apply on dry skin precautions: try to shorten/cut off your daughters nails regularly, try to apply bandage on fingers of your daughters hands finger in order to avoid unintentionally scratching at night. Good luck Answered by Cari Alesse 2 years ago.
It sounds like she has hypersensitive reactions. you will could desire to take her to an allergist and characteristic some exams made. interior the period in-between get some Aveeno lotion without something in it. additionally some Eucirine cream, get the Aveeno lotion cleansing soap additionally, it may desire to be used on the hair additionally. while she starts itching, save her cool. while taking a shower after she's finished washing, enable her rinse with the water and slowly enable it cool to assuage the floor. additionally attempt some Hydrocortosone cream one million% the physician provides you you a 2.5 % this is greater useful. Rub this in once you be conscious the Eucerine or Aveeno lotion. Answered by Romelia Vedia 2 years ago.
It's most likely eczema, it's obviously itchy if she scratching, try to deter her from this as it only makes it worse, I suffer from eczema, and it does hurt yes. Eczema can get infected, take her to the doctor, he should give her some cream, if it doesn't clear it up, then go and ask for bath oils and stuff. Use as often as possible. Eczema can also be very dangerous when chicken pox is contracted. I was hospitalized when I got chicken pox. I hope it's not too bad though! =) Answered by Perla Taubman 2 years ago.

Best treatment for a abscess?
we have a mare that came to our sanctuary with an abscess which would be a good traetment for her as keeping her in a stall or letting her out in the feild. the vet and farrier came out and she is still limping? any ideas?
Asked by Rachell Bidgood 2 years ago.
First of all, is the hole open? What did your farrier do for ya? Where is the abscess? Coronary band or bottom of hoof? Your farrier should have located it and opened it. Although sometimes they can be to fresh to pin point and need top wait a couple days. Either or, this is what I do. Do not soak, its a waste of your time. Trust me! Take some Furacin, (yellow ointment in a jar) Pack the bottom of the foot with it. I mean pack it. MAke sure the hoof is clean first. If you know exactly where the abscess is, then do just that area. Take seran wrap and apply over the furacin. It will keep it where it needs to be and also won't go thru the diaper as quickly. Put a reagular baby diaper on the foot. Take vetwrap and apply over the diaper to form it. Do not go tight over the coronary band but you can over the hoof. If your not turning out then do no more but if you want to turn her out then put duct tape over the vetwrap thickly. This will water proop the bandage and protect water and mud from soaking in. To turn her out depends on how lame she really is. What is dead lame to most people is not to me. You will have to use your best judgement there. If it is a open abscess then turning her out and her moving around will help drain. Change the wrap everyday and do not remove wrap until she has been sound at least for 3 days. Hoped this help. Also give her bute if you'd like for a couple days but if her leg starts to stock up she needs antibotics 2x a day Answered by Eloy Aughtman 2 years ago.
Has the abscess drained yet? If not, you can help it out by getting a rubber shallow feeding bucket (any bucket will do though) and adding warm water with epsom's salt (easily found at the grocery store in the med section). This will draw the abscess out. Soak for 10 minutes. The hard part is keeping the horse's hoof in the bucket long enough, so try to have hay net in easy reach, while you stand next to her. She'll be lame until the abscess erupts, at which point your farrier should be able to instruct you on the proper care of the open wound, or you can follow April's advice from above. The eruption can happen anywhere from the coronet band, to the heel, to even the frog, so keep your eyes open for little slits and/or cut like appearances that appear out of no where. Answered by Rodolfo Brownrigg 2 years ago.
Clean the area with antibacterial soap and soak the area with diluted Tea Tree Oil and then wrap to keep it clean (do this 3 times per day for 10 days even after it has drained) if it has not improved after 24 hours, call the vet again. Also, pouring pure (distilled) water on the abcess as much as possible is good too -- water is said to be the best medicine. Personally (not a vet) I think some triple antibiotic ointment and keeping the area covering the area would be good too -- call the vet and ask them (no charge) to be sure that human triple antibiotic isn't going to be bad for the horse. Although most animal medicine is a lower grade of the same medicine humans take, you should still check. Good luck with the horse and know that animals have a higher tolerance for pain than humans and being sure the abcess is clean is the most important step so don't worry you are hurting the animal -- they will let you know when it hurts and they can sense that you are trying to help them. Try to be calm and speak calming words to the horse as you do this as horses are very sensitive and can pick-up on your emotions and tone. Answered by Fay Eklov 2 years ago.
Depends on where the abcess is. If it's in the hoof area, hot soaks 3 times a day with epsom salts will draw out the infection. Fill a bucket with hot as you can stand water add a cup of epsom salts (found in the grocery or drug store) and put your horse in the cross ties. Position the bucket near the infected hoof. Get her to raise her hoof like you are going to clean it then put the bucket under it and lower the hoof back down into it. You probably will have to stand there and keep her company. Do this for several days and it should help. Answered by Rashad Valtierra 2 years ago.

Answered by Pennie Kujala 2 years ago.
I've had chickens, but not for long, so I'm no chicken expert. However, I do consider myself a wound-care expert, having doctored many horses whose skin had been torn off in very large spots. Do you have a playpen or big bathtub you can keep the injured chicken in? I would also get some Furacin from the local feed store or pet shop. That's a yellow antibiotic cream for animals. It causes cancer in humans, but it's THE antibiotic for animals. It's okay to apply it where there's no skin. You can also get penicillin and the syringe and needle to give a shot to your chicken once a day. Consult a vet or the drug manufacturer for drug dosage. It's been my experience that chickens keep weight on much easier of they are allowed to forage for food (insects). But, with no skin, you don't want your chicken out in the heat. So, try to let the chicken out to scratch around the yard for an hour each morning, maybe longer, depending on how the heat affects the skinless area. I've always put bandages on skinless areas, even though the vets all say not to. This is because without a bandage, the horse just lays down and gets a lot of dirt in it. But, if that wasn't a problem I'd definintly follow the vets advice and leave skinless areas unwrapped. With this being a chicken, bandaging is probably not an option, as they bend too much and have feathers that bandage tape would not be compatible with. So, really, all you have to watch out for is infection, which the Furacin &/or penicillin will help with, and don't let the heat/sun dry the wound out so that new skin can't grow because the sun has baked the edge of the wound into rock-hard scar tissue. Keep the chicken cool, away from flies, and provide adequate nutrition. Most animals are pretty good at healing themselves. Good luck. Answered by Rosia Palfreyman 2 years ago.
1. Gather 100 strangers from afar...w/ the assistance of a bouncer and/or wedding planner. 2. Wear a blindfold (first) before the 'meet and greet'. 3. Hug, kiss, and breathe heavily upon the guests upon entry to the hall, or location of your choosing. 4. Have a survey form available at the end of the M & G line, rating your beauty on a random scale 1-5, 1-10, etc... 5. Require that all guests fill the form completely, or they will be exited promptly. 6. Compile the results later. Then you'll know how "it" truly "is" re: the "skin depth" of your beauty. 7. Wouldn't hurt to have an open bar prior to the M & G...;) Answered by Davis Doniel 2 years ago.
i've grown up raising many chickens, my best advive to you is put the chicken in a different pen (if possible) away from other chickens keep a close eye on it. to make sure its eating and drinking. but if its not getting any better it might be best to put it out of its suffering :( i know its sad. but you need to think how the chicken is feeling. good luck Answered by Kandis Libert 2 years ago.
I grew up on a farm,I have seen this many times,When a fowl is sick or injured,and starts to become weak,the others will cannibalize it.That is the way of nature.If it is so severely injured,as described the chances of its survival are close to nil.If infection does not set in,it will be severely maimed for its existence.Sorry to be harsh about it,but that is reality. Answered by Dick Garibai 2 years ago.
its a good idea not to put it back in with its siblings,they have a tendency to peck at wounds,however if the mother is with them you should separate her and put the chick back with its family,she might not remember him after a few days,just make sure he has food and water,and is safe from other big chickens that arent his mom.
