Vet thinks it could be some fungal, allergy related something.
He didn't do a scrape because it said it would just show yeast, bacteria, etc and he already knew that was there.
So, gave me a tube of this and I'm supposed to treat until it's gone.
You can read some info here regarding Animax Ointment
It's the constant struggle of "Is this OK to put on my horse?"
"Does it trigger any complications to his laminitis?"
Per my Vet, he says it's OK to use but always watch and if I see anything different, discontinue use and call him. So far, he's totally fine with his 1st treatment, which I'm going to put on every other day instead of everyday, which Vet ok'ed as well.
As it progressively heals, he said to use Aloe and Vit E to repair skin tissue.
Cool. THAT I like.
In other words, I just ordered some products from Zephyr's Garden, to see how they will work in the future.
Fly spray, healing balm, and anti itch spray.
Couldn't resist the Free Shipping today and coupon code for $10 OFF is "Friend"
So treat yourselves too! :)
Zephyr is a beautiful barefoot Bay....hmmmm....looks sorta like someone else I know!
We'll see how our treatment goes, and how our new ZG products are (I wont mix my ZG products while using the Animax..they are for future use).
Georgette at Zephyr's did get me started with great info and was amazingly sweet to chat with via email...says a lot about a company :)
Side note, I still struggle with vaccines. My vet and I talked about the EEE vaccine again.
My gut says NO. I worry I'm exposing Laz to too much, but on the other hand, I KNOW that he doesn't respond well to the vaccines.
What's a horse Mom to do....
I guess...go with my gut for now and hope it's the right choice for him.
I have my holistic remedy for EEE and will do that again and hope it actually works.
