    Well they are leasing. And the owner does not vaccinate as she almost lost two horses giving them the vaccine. So she hasnt vaccinated since then. So its a toss up I guess.

    Sorry that your horse is going through that. My horse got strangles 4 years ago (he was 12). He did pull through it, but it was very stressful. I used a warm compress on the site where the abscess was (my veterinarian had sliced it open) and flushed it with betadine and water. I used Virkon to disinfect.

    Soaked alfalfa cubes is the way to go and you may want to put her on beet pulp too. Hope she's feeling better soon.

    They are already busting. I put icthamol on her this evening around 6, and by 730, 2 had busted. Yea, she's on alfalfa cubes now. That's all she's been able to eat the past few days. Plus they help keep her hydrated. And she did the inter-nasal vaccines.

    Poor girl. My guy only had 1 abscess. Glad that she's eating the soaked cubes. Fi was picky about it and I had to make a trifle out of it with layers of molasses :)

    Not her. She loves them. Lol. She's finally eating feed again. Of course just small amounts, since she's been off of it for about a week.

    Just wanted to wish you good luck. Nasty thing strangles, my friend lost her mare to it. I will keep your mare in my prayers.

    That's great news that she's eating her regular feed again.
