Re: RC: absess
I have had good luck with cleaning it thoroughly, putting a wad of
Ichthammol on two or three thicknesses of 4" gauze pad, stiff it in the
hoof and cover the whole thing with duct tape. Change twice daily.
Ichthammol is a "drawing salve". Probably wouldn't hurt if you soaked
the foot when you take the "bandage" off with Epsom Salts for 10-15
minutes if your horse will stand with his foot in a pan or bucket. (I
taught Sunny to stand in the barn hallway with his foot in an empty
bucket just in CASE he had this problem till he understood what I
wanted) Been very useful a couple of times.
