Does it never end??
I called the vet out last week as I suspected Jeff had Ringworm (though god only knows where he got it from).
Vet decided no, just a case of dermatitis, treat with soothing creams and it will be fine.
Today I get to the yard to find Reeco with lesions as well! Am absolutly fuming at the vet.
Jeff had 3 circular patches of hair missing, the patches were not scabby but in general he is quite scabby and itchy. To me the 3 perfectly circular patches screamed ring worm to me.
Now Reeco has 3 raied patches where the hair has dropped out. No scabby bits and not itchy.
Am going to call the vet in the morning and demand that they come out and do skin swabs and no I wont be paying for it! Reeco was supposed to be going to a show this weekend, he certainly can't go now!!
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
