About 3 months ago one of our horses showed symtoms of pigeon fever, and he had an abscess about the size of a golf ball. I called our vet, she advised that we let it run it's course and to keep him isolated so it didn't spread to the other horses and to keep him cleaned up when the abcess broke open (all the usual stuff). I have heard horror stories about how difficult it is to take care of a horse with Pigeon Fever.
I decided to try the oils and see what they might do to help as it seemed not much could be done. I called a friend, she gave me several oils to try as well as general heath care advice. I decided to use what I had at home rather then purchase more oils. We would daily apply topically Thieves and Oregano mixed with V-6 oil. I also gave him about 4 drops of Thieves everyday in a handfulof grain and apples.
It took about 6 weeks for the abcess to break, at the time it was about the size of a small Orange and the edema was a little bigger then my husbands hand. For the first 2-3 days my husband noticed really stringy yuck that came from the abcess but after that it was clear and a little bloody liquid that was less and less everyday.
Within 2 weeks he was completly recovered. When I first started to use the oils I let him smell them, the first time he smelled them he tucked his face into my arm. :) After all the bad stories I had heard I was amazed at how he got better. I hope this is of use to someone.
