One of my Labrador gundogs recently sustained a nasty cut on her foot. I would usually bathe it in warn salt water and leave it to heal, but I’d been given a pot of Equaide Pet, so decided to give it a try, not expecting it to make much difference to the healing process.
Cuts on dog’s feet tend to spread and open out as they heal, which makes me wonder if this is similar to proud flesh in horses, which is what Equaide was developed for, because much to my surprise the foot has healed quicker than I expected, so I would now always keep a pot of Equaide Pet in my first aid box.
I first bought Equaide Approximately 8 years ago for my horse, to heal a nasty Pastern wound that kept filling with granulation tissue. The healing process from that point onwards was amazing, and no scar visible 😀.
My horse also suffers from a skin condition called ‘Leukocytoclastic Vasculitis also known as Hypersensitive Vasculitis. It’s an Equine Photosensitive Autoimmune disease which often affects white socks. It can be confused with mud rash. It is very difficult to treat and very painful. In desperation I put some Equaide on the affected areas and the sores healed.
I think that Equaide helps with the healing process, but also because it is dark grey in colour it also blocks out the light which makes the condition worse.

I can’t recommend equaide enough. My mare sustained an horrific degloving injury to her right hind February 17. We usedequaide on the wound once the stitches were out and proud flesh started toform. Not only did equaide help with the healing of the wound but it kept theflies at bay during the summer months, a real bonus!

3 months later the wounds have healed and the hair completely regrown over. We did have a few occasions where the left one reopened from where he would get up from rolling so I just reapplied the Equaide once every time. Great for keeping flies off too. I and others at our yard wouldn’t be without it.
