My show horse suffered a kick in the field when a horse from adjoining field got into our field last week which resulted in a very deep wound about 5cm round above his knee and about 4mm deep. Suprisingly he is sound on it and the vet has been and cleaned him up etc. Just wondering what people use to keep scarring to a minimum rather worried about this as was hoping to show him again this year at national level. Have heard about camrosa but dont know much about it and info on their website is limiting. Also with any recommendations can they be used on raw flesh or not til healed over. Thanks

I use Cut Heal on the recommendation of my vet - it is a mix of oils, and is used on the wound - on the raw flesh - I know it is painless because I have used it on myself. it is not much hyped but I have had very good results.

Go online and try to get SWAT ( from the US ) I used it on all my show horses from the minute I found it and it is wonderful, and yes you can use it on open cuts -------------it is also supposed to kill flies on contact and at the very least it repelled them so well I also used it around their eyes and ears in Summer. Try to get the colourless one as the original version is bright pink.
I have used Derma gel on some very bad injuries and what it says on the label it actually does. This is one product that i will not be without. Hair has always grown back and wounds have healed extremely well.

I have found dermagel good, hair grows back the same colour. Also Flamazine (sp) from the vet, I have used this on a deep wound which was toolate to stitch, it was amazing, healed quickly but not too quickly, no scaring, hair same colour. Also aloe vera but small scar left.
mta, comfrey leaves and comfrey tea are apparently very good and natural but I havent used any myself.

I have replied to your pm Baloo, and another thing you can use is Dermobian if it is an open wound. The only trouble is it is banned in the UK because of the EU but my vet still gets it on licence so ask yours. Start the healing with that and then use SWAT.
