Bandaging

Nonsurgical management

Bandaging is recommended for the first 7-10 days. In horses to be managed nonsurgically, they should be walking comfortably within a few days after the injury, without the use of analgesics. Soft-tissue swelling and persistent lameness is an indication for re-evaluation and probable internal fixation.
