Does anyone know what to call this? I didn't push on it with my fingers to see if it was pitted, only to see if it was painful, and it wasn't. Also note the super swollen sheath. I need to call the vet in the morning, just wanted to see if anyone could help me ID what that edema should be called so I can clearly let her know what I need to have her come out to look at. Wasn't sure if this is a ventral edema? It doesn't look near as nasty as some pics I've seen.
This is my old horse, so of course I'm on the 'net reading every horrifying thing associated with edema and worrying myself probably irrationally, but someone is coming tomorrow (err, later) to check him out, one way or another, lol.
He's otherwise fine - eating great, drinking water, alert, being obnoxious to my mare, the norm. Broke my thermometer not two days ago and had forgotten to take the new one with me to the barn.
