Re: Horrible abscess! Help!

Kelsey, it could be that he has more than one abscess pocket to blow, or he didn't quite get it all out the first time.  I've learned here that giving jiaogulan can help speed up the process because it increases circulation in the hoof, but that speed can also cause them to worsen temporarily as things are working their way out.

If you could post some hoof photos of your donkey, maybe we can advise whether or not the trim needs an adjustment, too?
