Unfortunately, wounds, abrasions, punctures, abscesses and cracked heels are some of the most common skincare issues for horses. Some wounds are caused by the damp or muddy conditions (rain rot, mud fever), some are caused by the over-rubbing of itchy skin (self-inflicted), some result from an infected skin tear, some are caused by contact with a sharp object (such as the side of a fence, barbed wire or nails), and some wounds are inflicted by other animals.
Unless your horse's wound is very large or obvious, your first visual clue may be that your horse is repeatedly rubbing their body against a fence or stall walls. You may also see areas of hair loss, or matted tufts.
Responding to your horse's wound or sore can be a worrisome task, whether you're handling at-home care or bringing your loved one to the vet.
