Even though I forgot to take my camera to the barn today I still wanted to update everyone on Trixie. The vet returned today because I could not convince Trixie that she needed to let me change the dressings on her legs. After about 30 minutes of struggling with her, the vet decided that we needed to try a new route of treatment.
He's treating her now with what he called an "old cowboy trick." He sprayed something called underwood (and this vet has a thick Tennessee accent, so I could be misunderstanding him) on the wounds, then dusted them with baking powder. He says this causes a chemical reaction which works to heal the lacerations.
The best part is I don't have to play rodeo every day now. He's positive that she'll heal up fine. The only complication would be some granulations building up and causing proud flesh. But he'll be back next week to check on her and if she's getting any proud flesh he'll shave it off so the skin can grow back completely. (Wouldn't it be nice to be able to take away our own "proud flesh" so easily?)
I'll sign off with that thought...good night.
