Dr. Chris O’Malley has finally completed his master book Horse 911, an indispensible book on how to keep your horse alive until the Vet Arrives.
Chris is an accomplished Vet, and here he shows how to drain a painful chest abscess in a horse, a result of a snake bite.
Cleansing an abcsess of bacteria and puss is an important procedure to facilitate healing. The horse was sedated and given a local block before draining the abscess and the horse made a quick and uneventful recovery due to Dr. O'Malley's talented medical intercession.
Beware, this abscess video is truly revolting, and it cannot be unseen!
Seriously, if you have a weak constitution, don't press the play button.
