Horse Veterinary Questions? Ask an Equine Vet.
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry that it has taken so long to answer your question. It appears that your vet is doing all the right things but since the wrap has fallen, it will help to keep contaminants out if you can somehow, even using duct tape, to replace this wrap. Only time will tell if this will heal well but everything has been done to make this happen. The problem that your vet will have is that this is in an area of movement making it difficult to keep the sutures intact due to constant pressure on these sutures. If these do not hold, it will end up healing by second intention or from the inside out and as long as this is clean and dry, it will heal even if this happens.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
