    And even though they wormed her, different wormers work on specific worms. This is why people rotate wormers. If that was the first time she was wormed, maybe ask your vet to do a fecal while he is there.

    I am glad she is separated from your other horses.

    It is near her throat latch kind of next to her jaw on the left side. I believe it is near the lymph nodes?

    Sounds more like she has/was being treated for strangles.... You need to have her seen by a vet ASAP.

    That's why I asked where the hole was... Strangles is not something you want to deal with. At this point if I were you Tara, I would treating her like she had strangles and disinfecting the crap out of everything. It may already be too late if you were handling her and then were handling your other horses.

    Either way this is something that, IMPO, needs a vet like yesterday...

    I had thought that too but I would have thought that if she had it they would have never let her cross state lines? They told me she was fine and I just had to clean her neck every night. Her owners also were very strict on when I could get her and she hasn't showed any signs of being physically sick.

    What are other symptoms of Strangles? I've never had a horse with it.

    It depends on if she was actually inspected by someone who knows what they are looking at or just looked at to see if she matched the paper work...

    Strangles (also known as horse distemper)
