Wounds

Location, location, location...

These small wounds may not look too serious but any or all of them may involve an important synovial structure =(a joint or tendon sheath), and could be life changing for your horse if not dealt with appropriately —  the main concern when considering incisions or any other minor wound — is location.


When to call the vet?

  1. If in any doubt, call the vet. It will not necessarily result in a visit, but the vet can advise you best on what sort of treatment and management is necessary. You can always send a photograph.
  2. The wound is large or appears to go deeper than the skin.
  3. The wound is bleeding heavily.
  4. The wound is over/near a joint, tendon or eyes.
  5. The wound is very dirty or appears to have something foreign in it e.g. a piece of wood.
  6. The horse is very lame.
  7. The horse is not up to date with tetanus vaccinations.
