My horse has a cut on his foot. My friend said it looked like proud flesh. What are some remedys for proud flesh and what can i do to keep it from getting worse. I already apply hydrogen peroxide, neosporin, and wipe it out thouroughly. I also wrap it with cast wrap and Core-Flex vet wrap. But it still seems to get worse. Any suggestions?

We have had to deal with this problem lots of times!! Our vet is a beleiver in hidro, we just put a sprayer on the waterhose and wash wash wash. Start with a slow stream and then us a harder spray. This is done one to two times a day. At first it may bleed but as the days go it will start looking good. If need be will will give the horse a little Bute to help with the pain and wait 45min and then hydro. We will also keep them in a clean stall until the healing is going good. I also use alot of Fura-Zone it seems to help too. Of corse this all depends on how bad the cut is. I hope this helped you some. Have a great day and good luck.

I had a similar problem however my gelding had given himself a 6-8inch gash on his leg, ( jumped a fence and landed in a ditch) Any way the vet put 28 staple in and they all burst apart leaving alot of proud flesh, I washed the wound twice a day with Hibi - scrub and then packed it with Camrose ointment, dosed him with bute to reduce the swelling and within 6 weeks you would never have known he had been injured so badly. I kept my horse outside as i did not want to stable him as he would have seized up.
