We were called to examine a mare who was found in the field with some blood on her leg. On closer inspection following sedation Ashley Schofield, the treating vet based at our Onley Equine practice, realised that the blood was originating from her vulva. The mare had sustained an external skin wound which communicated with her vagina and pelvic bone. This wound was both complicated and extensive. Magda, our Towcester and Onley Equine Veterinary Intern was called to lend a hand.
