As I post these photos today, I am shocked by how much the wound has healed! It looks to be half the size that it was a month ago. At this rate, Dr. Tolley's projected ten week healing time might not be that far off.
There is another product that he suggested I try, a hydrophilic foam pad made by Kendall. The pads are a couple of dollars each and would require two at a time (for now) to cover the length of the wound. I decided against this course for now since the white lotion is working really well.
If the wound continues to heal well without more proud flesh developing, I might switch to the foam pads as he thinks they might promote quicker healing. If they work, I am willing to pay for them as they are far cheaper than the calcium alginate pads we tried a week or two ago.
Overall, the time I've spent bandaging Izzy's leg has been quite productive. He's learned a lot and has had time to get comfortable in his home before being asked to work. In no time at all he'll be ready to saddle and start his new life.
