I guess I am wanting some people's opinions before I decide to purchase anything. I have a horse that received a pretty bad but on the back of her pastern right leg. I know she is probably going to out for 9 to 12 months. But I was wondering, after the cut is healed, should I put any kind of wraps on it to help with the healing process? I have read a lot of stuff about Back on Track products, but I am wanting to see if other people had used them for tendon healing or any other products? Thank you!

BoT will help with recovery! What it does is increases blood circulation/flow to that area which in turn will promote healing!! I would for sure get some!

I bought BOT quick wraps for the horse's front and back legs last year. He was recovering from a bad cut on his back leg and it would still be a little swollen as a result. The BOT quick wraps helped a ton!

BOT wraps are awesome! I LOVE mine! I also have the PHT magnetic wraps and I can vouch that they for sure relieve pain and swelling.
You can also try Nutrawound. A little pricey, but worth a shot. I'm waiting on my first order to come in and can't wait to use it.

I have a question about BOT to add to this. My mare has a minor tendon injury and my vet said no BOT as it increases temp and we want to "cool the leg down. Not heat it up." I get what he is saying but doesn't increased blood flow help reguardless of temp??

This is what is very confusing to me as well. Cooling the leg slows down circulation, but you need increased circulation to heal an injury. From the research I've done, icing/cold hosing is beneficial for maybe the first 48 hours to reduce inflamation. If there's no swelling or inflamation, I don't see why you couldn't use BOT. However, I'm not an expert, this is just the conclusion I've come to on my own.

I second NutraWound. Every single time one of my horses gets hurt they get a minimum 30 day supply of it but I usually do 60 days. Every single time it has sped up healing and healed from the inside out. I am a firm believer in it and never treat an injury (cut, internal, etc) without it!

 I have always used heat (sweats) on injuries past the 24 hour mark.
