So, got the vet out today because Chinga's entire leg was very hot and swollen. With random sections of lameness.
Very unusual case, vet believes that it is either cellulitis or some sort of sprain, etc. We decided to put him on a five day course of antibiotics (penicillin) and bute. Along with cold hosing/icing, bandaging and gels. Strangely, did not react to much/any pain - although, we believe that this may be due to the fact that he was given bute the day before.
We're hoping that this is what it is - otherwise, we'll have to do more diagnositc tests to check for fractures/breaks (very unlikely), circulation issues and a few other things.
I've had terrible luck this year :( And, it's Christmas Eve.
