Another Tick Question

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   May 28, 2012 13:33


Question:  We pick ticks daily, Jackie the Golden had a full tick that she probably scratched at,  so I pulled it off.  The problem is there is a wound the size of a nickel or slightly larger, skin is ripped off.   She can’t lick it so put some antibiotic  on it.  Are there any potential problems with this?


Answer:  Not usually. After couple days with polysporin or hibitane ointment can change to one with a steroid in it to reduce inflammation for a couple more days. Dr. Lisa Waymann DVM
