The stable alerted me last night that Mara B had a cut lip, today we took care of her injury. Not sure what actually happened, however the wound needed to be cleaned and stitched up.
Dr. Anne arrived and sedated Mara plus gave her a local block on her nose, cleaned the wound out and then sewed it up with both internal and external sutures.
The final results looked great! The wound was sprayed with an aerosol bandage. Mara had a shot of Bute and is on antibiotics for the next five days. Thankfully there was no gum or tooth issue so all should be fine. Even riding we hope will be okay in a few days. Of course the stitches need to hold! Dr Anne and I know they may not last the entire two weeks we’re hoping for.
