Last year my 16.2 hack had an abscess on her near fore that wouldn't resolve despite having the vet out a number of times. The Hippo Abscess Plus remedy was successful in pushing out a piece of gorse twig that hadn't been detected. The abscess drained and healed beautifully. It took about 3 weeks but was a good result. Next time I will be using Abscess Plus at the first sign of trouble.
