This was an incidental finding during routine floating. The thickening of the tissue and margins of this gum wound indicates that this is a few days old. While there is debris in the wound there is no indication of infection as it is bathed in saliva with antibodies. I presume that this will heal without problems. The horse had no difficulty chewing.
