I've got this mare that had some kind of injury to her backside prior to my having her. Her vulva now is somewhat lopsided with one side being normal and the other side is thin and looks flat, almost like a really tight facelift on a horizontal plane. This causes her vulva to gap open quite badly when she is not caslicked. Problem I have been having is that after I have the procedure done, she will eventually tear it back open, the caslick's won't stay. Same vet did the caslick's work each time. Is there anything else that can be done to fix this?

Did the vet just stitch or did he actually skim a little of the skin to make it heal together better? I have heard that there are some vets who will just stitch the lips together, while the more effective way is to actually pare off a bit of the skin to allow it to heal more like an actual wound would.
Don't know if that helps, but my mare was quite the gaper before her stitch and this held for us.

Yes, vet did trim before stitching. I have seen a vet once use staples, would that be a better approach?

I have a mare with a caslick, had the vet open it today, he was rather dumfounded to see a caslick on a mare with such fantastic conformation!!!
