This was my other mares wound right after it happened and before it turned into a wreck. Those wound pics are in a Photobucket album, not sure if I can access them. That splint made all the difference in the world to aid healing.

I wonder if we used the same kind of cream? You just put it on the raw spot not on any healing tissue? That is what we did with our cream. His fetlock/foot is completely healed skin now but that half of it is "way taller" than the other side. Probably always will be! I will try to post a picture but I generally have issues with that. It always tells me my picture is too big. (I don't use photobucket anymore.)

well, the photos uploaded, now if they will only post!

My mares looks somewhat like that at the last wound care. Vet said it looked good and switched her to dermavet ointment. 

Correction on the cream she was on, I called it a sulfa drug it wasn’t, it was silvadene. I am so bad with medication names. 

Here is what I’m dealing with now, like yours, just that huge mound of tissue infer the original cut which I assume is inflammation. 

Anyone want to chime in here, will that ever flatten?

I’m thankful the swelling is not posterior. And Vet said turnout with light bandage. I’m thinking the movement will be good for the joint and surrounding tissue. She sure was a happy camper when I let her go.

I think it will flatten out with time but it may not be like it was pre-injury.
As wounds heal, the flesh tends to "mound up" while the body is sending its resources to heal it.  After the wound has healed, those extra resources slowly dissipate and the flesh will go down, leaving behind the scar.

I noticed this with cat spay incision sites.  During the healing process they would have (what appeared to me) to be a huge lump under the skin.  At first, I thought it was irritation at the stitches, but when I contacted my vet with my concern and she said she used glue .... I realized it was the body's response to the injury.  I've noticed with every female cat I've had spayed, they develop that lump while it heals and after several months, it slowly goes away and their belly is smooth.
Heck, I even noticed my own belly healing the same way after my abdominal surgery.  LOL

Heidi I know exactly what you’re talking about. It does that with my female spays too. 

The wound looked amazing at the last bandage change. The dermavet is doing the job. 

We’re going to Michigan in a few weeks and I need her to be healed enough to not need bandaging.

I'll cross my fingers that it heals in time for your trip!

I googled Dermavet and think I need some for my pet-care cabinet.

Traeper seems to be doing good with his injury. No more bandaging and we have ridden him around the farm and in the roundpen/arena, no limping. His still isn't pretty. I think that it will never have hair there again, but as long as it doesn't break open we will be good!

You have some proud flesh building up there. Not as bad as it could have been. Your vet will have a treatment to reduce that.

Heidi, I know exactly what you’re talking about. Had it happen with my female spays too. 

Heidi, the dermavet is amazing, it  has reduced the pf, it’s flat and smooth now, I’m down to just spraying with alushield. 

Out trip has been postponed until July. The dealer wasn’t able to install another AC so we ordered the same model with dual AC and a few upgrades. We’ll be camping mostly in Texas and will need all the AC we can get especially in summer. 

Had a wonderful Easter. Hid eggs for Lyra. Every time she picked up an egg she had to walk over and show it off to the her Daddy uncle and brother.
