. We agreed it may be a bean...kinda like a urinary tract infection... so try and get his man part out and clean it off... make sure there is no excess dirt and grime... use some iodine to clean it... but the lymph nodes are the thing that tells us maybe to call a vet... check his temp... and if it was strangles and he has had it for two weeks he would be on the verge of dying.. and his lymph nodes would be really really swollen...
A bean and a UTI are nothing alike.
NO idodine on the penis for heavens sake. You do not want to dry it out.
And NO NO NO - strangles for two weeks would not cause the horse to be on the verge of dying. Strep does have have to cause the lymph nodes to be swollen at all. Mild cases can be simply be a temp.
