Skin Laceration on a Shetland Pony
On Dee. 24 1955, a 4-yearold Shetland pony was admitted to Stange Memorial Clinic. A rough incision had been made completely around the fore-arm just below the humero-radial articulation. The skin had been separated from the leg for 5 inches toward the carpus and this cuff of skin was turned down and inside out. This loose necrotic tissue was cut off. No anesthesia was necessary. The pony was given 1,500 units of tetanus antitoxin. The lesion was moist with a sticky exudate. The wound was covered with 5 percent sulfathiazole ointment and covered with a bandage. Every third day the wound was rebandaged.
