    Default Best splint tx?

    My Arab gelding popped a big splint tearing around his muddy paddock last Wednesday. Its about halfway up the cannon on the medial side of his right front leg. I gave him bute and poulticed for 3 days. Now I'm bandaging with Surpass. The size has come down a little, but it's still warm. He is not lame and is turned out 24/7.

    I would like to minimize it as much as possible for cosmetic reasons, but don't want to go so far as to blister it. What has you guys had the most success with? How much time should I give him off?

    Default Since no one seems to have any opinions...

    Anyone know if it would be safe and/or beneficial to apply Surpass and then poultice over it? I prefer to use Antiphlogistine, but I also have Kool Out Clay.
