THIS MORNING BEFORE
THIS MORNING AFTER
Well I'm learning all about proud flesh I guess. Not a skill I really wanted, but we are making progress I hope. I guess the equ-aide is breaking down the proud flesh & since it has so many blood vessels to it, it was really a bloody mess last night when she came in for supper. But this morning it had dried up, until I washed it off. I cut off some of the lumps & scrubbed the rest with betadine. It started bleeding like a cut artery. Couldn't get it to stop, & finally had to hold a towel on her jaw & compress it for awhile. Once it stopped gushing, I could put the equ-aide on & that seemed to help it quit too. The instructions for proud flesh is to scrub it & keep it open, so I guess I'll be doing this again tomorrow. UGH!
We are getting ready to load Katie & take her to her new home. As I remember she isn't thrilled about loading. I'm surprised she really is easy to work with usually, she'll follow you anywhere & picks up her feet at a touch. Trailer loading isn't a donkey thing for most of them it seems.
