    I clipped my gaots hooves for the first time ever a few days ago and I hit Willow's quick on accident. I thought it was just a little cut, but it's worse than I thought. She only limps when she's on snow, not when she in the pen and straw. Is there anything I can do for her? I'm not going to give her medicine unless it becomes infected.

    Awwww, poor Willow.
    You could spray it with some Blu-Kote or other type of antiseptic, just as a precaution.

    I dont personally know what you could do but when we have foot injuries we soak in epsom salt. maybe you could try that?

    If it were me, i'd clean it real good, put some blu-kote on and wrap in vet wrap.. If it hurt her then i would do an Epson salt soak to help the pain a bit.

    I doubt it'll get infected, but it doesn't hurt to be precautionary.

    I think she'll be fine -- I've cut the quick much worse than that. ;)

    I agree, she will be OK. It isn't bleeding so, it isn't that bad, but will be painful for a while.
