ok so i have my competition mare, she has a huge gash on her neck around 20cm long and 1.5 cm deep, the vet came out stitched her up, got the all clear. but i was wondering what are some good ways/things to keep scarring to a minimal. and about the mare: she is doing great, very lively and hating being in a stable, but much more her self, the wound is very icky but hey, its gotta get worse before it gets better right?

Some people swear by NZ Manuka honey.
I used Vit E oil straight out of the capsule, once we got to the scab stage of the wound. It's really quite amazing at how much new healthy skin growth it encourages.
Good Luck. I have some wound pictures with the results of the oil if you'd like to see. PM.

The forum drove me to drink. Remind me to thank it.
I've had success with a number of applications on horrific wounds...always used a differant aray of medications for whatever reason at the time..whatever I grabbed first....tho swear by the Colidial Silver Water and Manuka Honey used together.
Just ONE horse here has some proud fleash and he was difficult to fix after sometime..he'd had enough of me fiddle farten about.
I was throwing some Copper Sulphate on it and it was getting better each time...but I might like to show this horse so am a little impatient.

The last of the wound had a corn like growth...definatly proud flesh so I buy some Proud Aid for a rediculous price of $80 cos everyone says its grouse..then the darn corn thingy dropped off Mad Mad
Wanted to see how good Proud Aid was...
I had used the Copper Sulphate a few times and been pretty happy so I guess for the $ the CS was worth its weight in gold. Smile

Good Luck!! Smile

I've found Thuja cream good at taking a light skin off top of nasties..more older scabs..and fungal stuff..is really good for softening scabby crap.

Aloe Vera gel is good too, try to get the highest purity possible and put it on when the new skin is still that pale grey colour.

This year I ahve had a run of shocker injuries. With Aloe VEra gel as first treatment then Manuka honey, no proud flesh at all,

Lotagen is (usually) for excessive granulation not for a nicely healing stitched wound.

If the proud flesh hasn't formed best to use products that discourage it and encourage correct healing like...
aloe vera
manuka honey
Thuja cream I use for sarcoids but I think it is in a base of paw paw cream which is good for scarring too.

Hi, this remedy is an absolute sure thing.
sea minerals, buy at any produce store
morrisons black powder

spray wound with sea minerals first and then puff on black powder
do this twice a day

I have a thoroughbred that went through the fence and striped his leg down like a banana, took2 weeks of bandaging, when I took the bandages off, I hit it with this remedy, now we are showing him in hack classes, there is no proud flesh left or meaty scar,in fact there is no scar, fantastic stuff, even my vet said to me, what did you use, and where do you buy it

Anything with silicon properties, if you can get straight silicon, or even silicon strips to bandage over the scar and leave over night will help too.

I tried that on one of my horses who had a small nick from a stick it coursed it to become infected and resulted in bandaging for 10 days and antibiotics Sad I'll not use it again.

We had a horse with stitches in his shoulder internal as well as external around 10cm long vet said to put nothing on the stitches you can't even see a scare but he did a really great job Smile
