Bruising in Horses

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

With bruised sole or other more serious bruises, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), may be administered to further alleviate the pain.

 

Living and Management

 

Resting the horse is important for the healing of bruises. It normally takes no more than a week to ten days for a bruise to occur and heal.

 

Prevention

 

If it is known, removal of the object that has caused the bruising is a good way to prevent future recurrences.
