My 2 year old came back from the trainers with a small bout of scratches on his two hind legs below the ankles. (Both white)
When I scrubbed and cleaned them they seemed to get worse and when he went to a horse show they got really bad (may have been the different shaving or dirt not sure)
So he is home now and I just can’t get them to go away!!!
He is healthy, on a great diet, and never had scratches before.
I have tried the furazone/desitin mix, and cleaning it with betadine and letting dry, tried wrapping, tried the blue spray that everyone swears by ( the fancy bleach concoction in a gel form) but nothing seems to work.
While the scratches and scabs are pretty bad, he has never had any lameness or swelling.
Is it time to get the vet involved and get some kind of prescription cream?
Or does anyone have a cream that has worked?
Of course we just had 6 inches of rain which has never happened in the history of Arizona, so he is currently in a muddy condition.
