My mare has a puncture wound on her neck. She's been turned out for the past couple of weeks, and it was only noticed yesterday morning. It was swollen and full of pus so my FIL cut it open a little to let it drain. We've been giving her penicillin daily, cleaning the wound out and packing it with NFZ and SWAT around the outside to keep the flies off. She seems to feel fine, she's eating and drinking like normal and picking on the others. We have the Chris Cox clinic in three weeks and i'm worried she won't be able to go The actual wound isn't all that big, it's about the size of a nickel, but it's an inch or two deep. It isn't as swollen as it was yesterday and is continually draining. It was bleeding after I hosed it and looked quite healthy. She's probably going to need to see the vet on Monday to make sure there's nothing left in her neck, but is there anything else I can do for her in the meantime? I've been wondering about putting an Animalintex poultice on it.
