Do keep in mind that we have outside mares in that we breed in the spring, but none showed any signs of any sickness. Dime(the other filly) is still sick. We now have her on a new med. We have a consult on her and are trying biomicin. The facebook picture of you two is cute. Keep us in the loop. If there are any ideas on your end, we would love to hear about what anyone thinks it is.
My gramma said my vet is pretty busy this week but we are trying to get him here by Friday
Someone correct me if I'm wrong but isn't pigeon fever as bad or worse than strangles?
It is very possible and with this new info I would make my vet come out tomorrow. And be very, very pissed this wasn't disclosed of ahead of time. They told you she had discharge but never mentioned the severity of it.
