Purchase: Bought from Equaide Website - $32.
Likes: I had a colt with a bad front cannon bone laceration that was about 3 inches long by 2 inches wide. The vet was not able to stitch it, so the wound had to heal by granulation. Sadly even after keeping it wrapped and applying prescription Steroids and antibiotics the wound grew an enormous amount of proud flesh quickly that stuck out of the wound bed by about an inch. The vet tried cutting it off and we started re-wrapping and applying medication but the proud flesh kept coming back. Some friends suggested things that had worked for them like Wonder Dust,Nu Stock, Proud Flesh Remover powders, Tree Healing derivatives and ointments, which had worked on other horses. I started trying out their recommendations but after a week of application, the proud flesh kept getting worse. After doing some research on the internet I came upon several recommendations for Equaide. At this point I was in over $1000 in vet treatments as well as other medications. I ordered the Equaide and started applying it. Within 3 days, half of the proud flesh cracked off and fell off. After a week there was no more proud flesh protruding above the wound. Once that happened, every day you could see the wound shrinking in size. By a month, the wound had gotten as small as it was going to get. This was after 3 months of trying everything else. I could not believe how well this product worked when everything else had failed.
Dislikes: It is expensive.
Quality: I am a hard core skeptic, but I have to admit this stuff works great. Did not burn the horse or cause discomfort so was easy to apply.
Summary: Worth every penny I paid. Wish I had used this from the start, because if I had the resulting scar would probably not even be there. It was truly a miracle for a hard to heal horse.
