    I am sure this is off the wall, but what are chances of rabies exposure in your country? Sudden aggressive changes like you are describing would make me concerned.........

    Good point wyominggrandma but if it is rabies would her appetite not be affected?

    Another random question to OP as right now there are so many possibilities: Does your horse live on your place or is she boarded? Is there a possibility she is being tormented by someone?

    I would get the vet out as soon as possible.
    Scary stuff.

    It certainly sounds like that swelling could be the problem. It could be a hernia which can get serious very quickly. I would get the vet up to have that checked.

    I know you have had her scoped, but you should get her re-scoped (if the swelling on her belly turns out not to be the issue). I would want to know if that piece of wood was dissolving or starting up a chronic infection! If you have an ingrown nail that isn't removed, it is going to continue to in-grow and cause a chronic infection. A low level chronic infection might not show signs until it is too late.

    One other question- why can't they remove the foreign body by endoscope? Do they not have the right equipment? Or is it too large to be removed by endoscope?

    Welcome to the forum!

    I think swelling in the teat area can be caused by hormones also.

    Very odd ...
