How To Treat Proud Flesh, And Manage Catastrophic Wounds In Horses
Many catastrophic horse wounds and injuries can be completely healed to point you wouldn’t even know the horse had been injured. The key to success is correct wound management, not luck. Using the right product, and applying it correctly, makes all the difference in the world.
Resolve Wound works more quickly, and completely, than any product on the market. One of many reasons it works so efficiently is it stimulates blood flow to the wound area. Increased circulation and blood flow drastically shortens the length of time it takes a wound to properly heal. Also, Resolve Wound inhibits bacterial, fungal and viral infection on the wound surface.
There are many home remedies, and commercially made products and powders containing caustic ingredients that hinder the healing process. Do not use meat tenderizer, scarlet oil, iodine, Nitrofurazone ointment (decreases wound contraction and delays regrowth of skin over a wound), Hydrogen Peroxide (full strength it is toxic to cells), Gentian Violet, or lime (caustic alkaline burns). These compounds not only “eat” away damaged tissue, they eat healthy tissue needed for proper healing. Most of these products do not work; they are painful, and damage tissue. Only clean the wound with saline solution. Electrolyzed saline solutions are especially effective in early stage wound cleansing.
Resolve Wound works in a completely different way than the commonly known products mentioned above. Resolve Wound is unique in that it gently melts away proud flesh without damaging healthy tissue. Each timeResolve Wound is washed from a wound before re-application, you will see clean, smooth, healthy tissue. No picking, no scraping required. As Resolve Wound flattens smooth, raised, bumpy damaged tissue.
When treating a leg injury, wrapping the leg helps further speed the process. The bandage helps flatten the injury surface, and keeps out air which promotes proud flesh. If you are not comfortable wrapping a leg, get help, or learn how to wrap correctly. Incorrectly applied wraps may cause permanent injury to your horse.
So, throw out the caustic powders, meat tenderizer, scarlet oil and lime. Do not use any ingredients that damage tissue. It will only add time to the process, and the results won’t be as good.
