Hoof Abscess

Pep is having hoof problems again. She just got over an abscess in her left hind foot now she has one in her right hind.
She was lame for a couple of days until it ruptured out at the coronary band. She is walking better but now the leg is swollen.
I started her on an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicine yesterday.
Today the leg is not as swollen. I had to quit giving her the anti-inflammatory medicine however, because it was too bitter (even with syrup) and she wouldn't eat the grain with it and the antibiotic.
