    Facebook post had me thinking about this...

    Woman basically posts a pic of a nasty injury asking for advice (sounded like she was doubting her vet) and cue the crazies. My favorites were...

    Throw some essential oils on it.
    Use CBD oil.
    Scrub with AC Vinegar.
    And...
    Cold hosing causes proud flesh. Don't do it.

    I seriously cannot read the responses anymore. I just can't. I can appreciate wanting a second opinion and all that... but some people need their internet taken away.

    could be worse - always someone on my local groups who advises transmission fluid as a wound treatment

    I rarely can stomach it. It's just too awful.

    Yea, I saw transmission fluid and motor oil recommended recently. Always a good one.

    Crap. I didn't see the motor oil (yet) but Pine Tar did show up eventually... along with the usual Underwoods, Vetricyn, and Furisone suggestions (normally all okay but this was a nasty injury).

    Sometimes I have to wonder about people but then I get scared.

    Someone posted a filly for sale that was emaciated and a belly full of worms. I got some popcorn out and watched the comments roll on in. Almost as good as netflix.

    For an abscess, you fill it with turpentine and light it on fire. (y)
