What is the best treatment for scratches? My horse has had a severe case of scratches for over a month. I have tried everything, even vet-prescribed creams!

i know a lady that puts vaseline on scratches and bug bites so it will help them heal naturally and it sorta works!
hope this helps ❤️
Hello Paige, my horse suffers from severe scratches every year or so. I wrap the leg with Socatyl paste under a bandage, it's an anti inflammatory. Here we can only get it from the vet, if you haven't tried it it's worth to give it a shot. I also give him cubarmix powder (antibiotic) when it gets too severe. I hope your horse gets better soon!
