Hey all im on the Sunshine Coast q.l.d. Australia and if you don't no which you probably don't we have just been flooded and had terential rainfall...most in like 20 yrs...anywho the flooding has stopped and I went out to check the horses this morning and I was horrified.
My older horse who is 22, all his four legs from the knee to the hock were severly swollen and he was looking rather sad and sorry for himself...and my other 10yo seemed alright, though has little swelling in his front legs.
The vet came and diagnosed them both with Cellulitis/Lymphangitis. They have been given anitbiotics and need them for the next four days.
Has anyone else had this before??? Im a little worried....and does any one know preventions so I can stop it from happening again????
