Good Morning, and thanks for the question.
Sorry to hear about your horse’s problems with the gashes on his/her hip bones. I’m happy to help, but I need a bit more information concerning the condition, so I can get a better picture as to what might be going on.
1): How old is your horse, and is it male or female?
2): How long have the gashes been present, and are they causing problems (infection, lameness, etc.)?
3): Have you been treating them in any way, and if so, how?
4): Does your horse have any difficulties while getting up or lying down?
5): Is there any possibility that you could attach a photo or two of the gashes? That could be extremely helpful as to how to approach a solution or treatment.
Thanks for your time, and I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
-Dan C., DVM.
