Preventing and Treating Abscesses

An abscess is the body’s response to an infection or invasion of a foreign object. Abscesses can be found just about anywhere on or inside a horse's body. Among the alternative treatments for abscesses are Traditional Chinese Medicine, homeopathy, cold laser therapy, and essential oils.

Dosage for goats?

Would these treatments work for a goat with an abscess and if so would I treat with smaller dosage?

Phosphorus

Where do they sell phosphorus? Any recommendations on places to buy from? My horse is slowly recovering from strangles and has a large abscess between his neck and jaw. Also any recommendations on how to put weight back on him (he lost all of his weight within the first week of two of having strangles). Any advice would be much appreciated!

Help for abscess

We do not know of a supplier for Phosphorus, but you might try reaching out to a holistic veterinarian via telephone or Dr. Jolly who is written for HH on wound care and is writing an article on Canker care. stepaheadfarm@yahoo.com Stepahead Farm
