Animals: Healing horse skin wounds. 2 Cases

Case No. 1. Healing of large uninfected horse wound with wheatgrass

This horse suffered a large full thickness wound when skin was torn off when it ran into a wire fence. There has been significant healing in just 7 weeks after wheatgrass extract applied just twice weekly. Note how clean the wound is with no sign of infection.

Note at 7 weeks that the animal’s hair has completely recovered over the healed area with no sign of scarring. This is quite unusual.

Large open wound heals rapidly with wheatgrass extract. Note absence of infection, flies etc. because wheatgrass “seals” the wound surface preventing wound contamination. There is no sign of infection throughout the entire healing process. Also, note complete recovery of hair following edge of the wound as it reduces in size. 

Note also, significant healing of wound and no infection at 3 weeks and complete hair regrowth with significant shrinkage of wound at 7 weeks.

Case No. 2. Healing of multiple infected horse wounds with wheatgrass

I received the following message from the owner of a horse “hospital” in Mexico:”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 that 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.”

Rather amazed at how difficult it seemed to heal horse wounds, I sent them wheatgrass extract spray. I instructed them to apply the spray once daily and not use dressings. View how effectively, and rapidly, wheatgrass did a great healing job:

Discussion: Wheatgrass clearly healed this animal’s wounds and no antibiotics or dressings were required. It is important to note that wheatgrass also heals human wounds e.g. burns, injuries, and effectively prevents infection and antibiotics are rarely required.
