Accident prone Thoroughbred: Herbs to rescue

charlieeyeday2Charlie, this twenty-four year old TB gelding pulled his lower lid from his left eye and one week later it was almost entirely healed using only herbal medicine. Internally: Oregon grape root, gotu kola and sarsparilla powders as well as homeopathic Arnica montana 30C. Externally, my homemade salve with plantain, calendula, comfrey and Hypericum in an organic olive oil/bees wax base. Here are the photos on day 2, 4 and 7. Did you know herbs are so good at healing horses and prevent proud flesh!charlieeyeday3charlieeye7day
