Skin lesion on coat

Postby Claude » Fri Jul 03, 2015 2:56 pm

I noticed yesterday while I was grooming my horse that he has a skin lesion started on his chest. I don't know if he got bit by a fly or if it could be something else. Yesterday it was bleeding, but today it seems to be a little better. Do you think I should just leave it alone and watch it for a few days, or should I call the vet?

Do you have any type of medicated cream to put on it? If so, you might try that. But, if it does not start healing within a day or so, definitely call your vet. It does not take long for a lesion on a horse to go from minor to very irritated and painful.
