An added plug for Ichthammol-my 2 year old recently cut her knee pretty
badly.  I took her in for stitches and bandaging, etc.
AFter 3 days she started pulling the bandage off (and the stitches out).
Back to the vet, who did another wrap, and smeared
Ichthammol on it-said of everything she had every tried, that was so stinky
and nasty that it deterred the horse from picking at the bandage.........and
it worked!
