Animals: Rapid healing of horse skin wounds

Horse Wound # 1. Healed in 7 weeks

The animal below suffered a large full thickness wound after skin was torn off by a sharp object protruding from a wire fence. Just 7 weeks after twice weekly application of wheatgrass extract, rapid healing is obvious. Note how clean the wound is, with no sign of infection. Wheatgrass completely "seals over” the wound area preventing  infection by insects, bacteria etc. and accelerates the healing process.

Note that at 7 weeks, hair has completely covered the healed areas and there is no sign of scarring. According to the owner, this was an unusual phenomenon.

Rapid healing after large full thickness skin tear.

After 3 weeks' wheatgrass treatment, there is significant healing of the wound and no sign of infection. Note  complete hair regrowth and significant shrinkage of the wound at 7 weeks.

The two photographs below at 10 weeks (L) and 18 weeks, show further healing with minimal scarring and complete hair coverage.

Horse Wound #2. Healed in 9 weeks

The Mexico-based carer of this injured horse reported: -

”Today we rescued a 5 month old colt who had been attacked by dogs a few days ago. He had large infected wounds on both sides of his face and on his left front leg. The injury on the leg was so swollen he couldn’t bend the knee joint."

"Anything white you see in the photos is a maggot or worm. When the wounds were sprayed post debridement with ether and iodine, thin white worms were crawling out of everywhere! He’s getting penicillin, an oral paste for inflammation and pain, and daily wound cleaning with hydrogen peroxide and iodine. The wound is packed daily with an antibiotic ointment.”

We sent them wheatgrass Skin Recovery Spray, recommending a once daily application and to avoid using dressings. Considering how badly infected the wound was, the outcome was remarkable.

Now, after many more healing experiences with the spray, we recommend that it be applied once weekly only.
