Well she's finally pooping normal. She's still not drinking as much as id like. But she us getting quite a bit of water from the cubes, and from us wetting her feed down. Her whole face and throat latch is really swollen. Poor thing. And from the abcesses bursting, she reeks. Poor poor thing. But she has her spirit and appetite back. So we are making progress.

Figured id update. We still only have the two ruptured abcesses, but the are draining a lot. We clean them twice a day and squeeze out what we can. Which might I ad, is the grossest thing I've ever had to do. And I've had to doctor a horse that ripped half her chest off. She hasnt ran a fever in two days. We finally have her back on hay. So all things are looking good.

So another update. Its not strangles. We still have a big abcess draining. And now her tongue and the roof of her mouth is swollen. Had one vet out, had no idea what it was. Had a second vet out (my vet) and she thinks it may be cause my fox tail in the hay. Other than the abcess and swelling, everything else is completly nornal. Ugh... lovely horses.

I just want to say that I read something about using Zimermectin Gold wormer, alot of horses are having an allergic reaction to that causing their tongues to swell up. Could this be a possibility?
