This cow had a festering superficial abscess for the last few months. Working on the advice of the local Veterinary office, I decided today was the time to open it up since the soft spot developed over the last few days. The Hospital area was bedded with dried solids and is cleaned up daily. The knife was sanitized before hand and wasn't dull like it was mentioned in the video. Sometimes the soft spot is like tissue paper and other times they can be a little tough. Several gallons of putrid fluid poured out . The area was then cleaned up and the cow was let back out. Within a few weeks everything will be back to normal. These heal rather quickly. I intend to follow up with more video of this cow to show her progression.
