Re: Hoof abscesses - treatment question

Mary M.

-- Uggh hoof abscesses are not fun.  If it has already burst, may i suggest sugardine-- a mix if betadine (the solution, NOT the scrub that has soap) and sugar made to consistency of about toothpaste. I used non-absorbant side of diaper then vetwrap/duct tape overnight. The betadine will absorb into hoof and you will just see white sugar in morning. Good as drying agent and killing bacteria. Hope this helps..
