WOUND CARE FOR HORSES
In the case of scratches and wounds, it is important to have the wound cleaned and closed as soon as possible, in order to prevent bacteria and dirt from causing inflammation. WOUND is an essential oil which is ideal for the care and cleansing of wounds. The oil has bactericidal properties and contributes to faster formation of scabs.
You should look after your horse daily and check it for sores and scratches, as horses thrive in an environment where bacteria easily thrive. This increases the risk of infection.
Wounds are a common occurrence in horses. Most are superficial and do not require treatment, however, deeper wounds may occur which may require treatment. If the horse has a fever or shows signs of lameness, the veterinarian should be contacted.
WOUND INJURIES IN HORSES
There are a myriad of wound injuries that the horse can incur. It can be anything from a superficial skin abrasion to a deeper so in the muscle. The most common types of wounds in horses are cuts, stab wounds, blood draws, abrasions and bite wounds and combinations thereof. When assessing a wound, it is essential to look at the depth of the wound. The deeper the wound, the greater the risk of potential damage to the horse’s muscles, tendons or bones. If you are in doubt about the extent of the wound, or whether it requires treatment, you should always contact a veterinarian.
WOUNDS ON THE HORSE’S LEGS
The horse’s legs are vulnerable and prone to wounds and scares. The horse’s skin on the legs is thin, and behind the skin there are a lot of tendons. Wounds, including superficial wounds on the legs, should therefore always be taken seriously, as an infection in a wound on the leg can cause swollen legs and thereby increased pressure on the horse’s tendons. Often a bandage on the leg is connected with a bandage, this helps to keep the wound clean and at the same time prevent swelling. It is important to apply a sterile bandage directly to the wound. If you want to avoid swelling, you can put a bandage on top.
WOUNDS ON THE HORSE’S BODY
If the wound is located elsewhere on the body, it may be washable to apply a bandage, thereby protecting the wound from dirt. These wounds will typically be unprotected. In cases where the wound cannot be closed with a bandage, extra care will have to be taken to clean the wound and possibly disinfect it to avoid infection.
CLEAN THE HORSE’S WOUNDS
In the past, soap shavings were what was used when cleaning a wound, today you do NOT recommend soap shavings, as it has a basic pH value, which can slow down the healing process. Today we recommend that you clean the wound with sterile saline, eg this one from Animal Helpcare. Here you can without coming into contact with the area clean the wound and then apply WOUND to disinfect and help with the healing process.
COME LIVING THE YOUNG HORSE WARTS WITH WOUND
Is your horse or pony dying with the classic “young horse warts”? The warts are in most cases harmless, but if they are placed instead around the saddle bed, then they can be a nuisance to the horse. In addition, they can have a cosmetic significance.
You can relatively easily get the warts to life, with a lasting impact on the horse care product WOUND. Apply WOUND daily, preferably several times over a period of 4-6 weeks depending on the size. It can be a lengthy process, but in return the risk of the wart coming back is minimal.
WHY USE A NATURAL WOUND CARE PRODUCT?
The advantage of using a natural wound care product like WOUND is that the product maintains the natural bacterial flora, as opposed to chemically manufactured disinfectants which remove 99.99% of all bacteria.
Horses as humans have a natural and healthy bacterial flora on the skin, which helps to heal wounds and scratches faster. If these bacteria are removed, the healing process may take longer than necessary, which can cause scarring together to increase the risk of complications.
With WOUND, you only remove bacteria that do not naturally thrive on the skin. This gives the skin the optimal conditions to heal the wound itself, naturally and quickly. When WOUND is applied, a day or two later you will see that the wound becomes dark. This is a barrier WOUND makes, a form of scab that is completely soft. It is always an advantage to avoid a hard and dry wound crust, as this easily falls off prematurely, thereby reopening the wound.
OREGANO AS A DISINFECTANT
Oregano is the active ingredient in our popular WOUND, but why just oregano?
Oregano is nature’s answer to the chemically produced disinfectants that we know from our daily lives. Oregano is by nature the strongest antiseptic (bactericidal) agent. The oregano plant extracts the oil Carvacrol, which is particularly useful for wound care, fungus, viruses, bacteria, antibiotic-resistant bacteria, staphylococci, salmonella and inflammation.
WOUND contains 99% Carvacrol, in a 1% solution. WOUND can be used on both humans and animals, with the exception of cats.
