ASK Zoetis : Hi :) any suggestions on helping an abcess heal which is located on the side of a horse mouth? Should I be dressing it to keep it clean ?

Hi Lucie,

It depends if the abscess is pierced or not. If so, treat it like a wound and if not, hot compresses can help mature the abscess.

Ask your vet, observing the abscess, he will know at best advise you.
