She was pretty lucky, although the vet thinks that she is a bit hazy out of that eye at the moment. Said it'll clear up with the pain relief as it takes the pressure off the back of the eye socket.
No idea RVP We have searched the paddock with a fine tooth comb. No sign of any blood even yet when I found her it was obvious it had poured down her face during the night. And there's no way she fence hopped.
Looking forward to the next four days to be over as she's being needled/sprayed/medicated twice a day at the moment
I agree with Coliban. My horse had a hole in his face that went through the cheek bone (vet thought it was pretty clever that he could "blow bubbles" with the antiseptic wash through the side of his face!) and he healed really quickly. It was completely healed within 5 weeks. Aside from his face being a bit a symetrical due to the bone damage you wouldn't know - there is no scarring.
Good luck with your girl - I hope it goes as well for you as it did for me.
I'm lucky that she's not a stressy girl I think, she could have rubbed it all night and made it a lot worse. I'll take her out for a pick of green grass this afternoon.
I was told aloe vera gel once healing begins would make the chances of white hair regrowth slimmer. Does anyone know anything about that? I have used calendula paste in the paste. Just don't want to irritate it.
Am getting tuff rock on Monday as it'll help protect it a bit when it starts to get itchy.
Any baby cream would do the job fine.
I don't remember seeing white hair regrowth oh head wound scars? the hair either grows on scarring tissue or it doesn't, keeping it moist with any cream certainly helps. If you have an aloe vera pant growing, you can just chop the leaf, scoop its flesh out and use it on the wound straight away
