Poorly injured stapled baby... :(

My poor boy went over the breastbar in the trailer today, got a nasty cut to his head :( He was so brave when the vet came and gave him staples...  He also suffered with a scrape down his back leg, taking the hair and top layer of skin off... 

What do you find best to put on the wound heal the scrape and once its healed has anyone got tipe for hair regrowth? He is 24?

oh poor little man. Why did he go over the breast bar?

Not 100% sure yet, it was his first time travelling alone, usually he has company. Vet said that may have been the reason....

Re: Poorly injured stapled baby... :(

Well for my mare, human products work just as well as equine ones. I use savlon for smallish cuts or sealed cuts that just need to fully heal. I used it once in the morning before I turn her out, and then again when she comes in after a good groom. Depending on how deep the wound is and how many layers he has taken off, the hair should regrow naturally over a month or so. My mare caught the side of her face (just under her eye) on a sharp nail whilst being spooked by the other horses in the field. She came in with a pretty nasty cut, fairly deep and long, but with savlon and patience its now fully healed and unrecognisable. Helps that she is grey so even if there was a scar, it would be almost unnoticable. Really sorry to hear about your horses injury. Hope this helps. Get well soon pony!!!

Poor boy, that sounds really nasty for him, I just hope he recovers soon.

JenHavocManny posted some days ago about Manny getting a leg caught in netting, and her vet gave her some sort of antiseptic spray that covers the wound with a sort of skin, she said worked well, maybe have a look at her post and ask your vet about it.

And cornucrescine is the best thing I know for hair regrowth.

Hugs to your boy :o)

Ahh thanks all, was so worried about the poor love... Went to the yard this morning (after spending half the night with him) and he seems all well, not lame at all!!! He is a tough cookie bless him... Think im far more traumatised than he is...

 It was the worst and most scary thing I had ever seen.... He doesnt even seem worried... bless him!

I swear by dermagel for these things, it keeps dirt out and provides a moist healing environment underneath and also helps minimise white hairs and scarring, I've used it a lot and had good success with it.  I can also recommend Forever Living Products Aloe Vera Gel which does a similar job and is great for wound healing.
