The sequence of wrapping the proud flesh wound: 4 of 4 – The blood will seep through and this is OK. Replace this bandage in a day with later bandage changes occurring every 3 to 4 days. To prevent this bandage from slipping, apply 1 turn of Elasticon® (elastic bandage with adhesive) at the top of this bandage with ½ on the skin and ½ on the bandage. Do the same on the bottom edge. This will seal out the dirt so the horse can be turned out without worries of wound infection. At the bandage changes, just use a gentle stream of water to knock off the puss. DO NOT SCRUB OR USE SOAPS OF ANY KIND. Just a gentle stream of water and let air dry. This would will take about 30 days to heal.
