Cow rescued whose halter was cutting into her nose

 In Blog, Hurt to Healed

It must have taken months for her to outgrow her halter. Friction from the rope had caused a severe abrasion that had become a maggot wound. She was feral and very difficult to catch which may have been the reason her owner, if she has one, hadn’t gotten her treated or taken off the halter. On August 24th we got a call that this beautiful auburn girl had been noticed by a kind soul who called Animal Aid to rescue her. We are always most horrified by wounds that were preventable, and most relieved when, with simple daily wound management, we can bring such tremendous relief so quickly.


After cutting off the old halter we thoroughly cleaned the wound and applied a moist bandage with lots of cotton padding. For the next two weeks we changed the bandage every day and gave her anti-inflammatories and antibiotics.


Her wound healed fast and in just two weeks she was completely healed and happy.
