Let me start this post by saying that my version of "It looks great!" and my vet's version of "It looks great!" are two very, VERY different things.
My version: A completely grown-out hoof with no defects, ever again.
My vet's version: The following:
Surgery +1 day
Surgery + 3 days
Surgery +5 days. You can see the new tissue is starting to grow in from the top.
1 Brego foot requires: 1 5x9 surgical pad, ~40 gauze squares, 1 roll of vetwrap, 1 triple layer duct-tape boot, and 1 roll of ela$ticon.
Home and hoovering as usual!
Tomorrow I get to do my first solo bandage change. Luckily Brego's super good about this, but still, it's a 5-step process and that is one BIG foot. He's 100% sound and about ripped my arm off coming out of the stall this morning, complete with head tossing and squealing. Clearly he feels quite good, despite missing the better part of a hoof!
