It began as mysterious swelling on her front left cannon with no lameness whatsoever. So I began cold- hosing and then applying a standing wrap. I made sure her leg was completely dry before wrapping the standing wrap. That reduced the swelling within two days, so I didn't wrap that night, swelling returned the following day, so I resumed the wrapping. Noticed a small amount of 'gunk' on the back of her cannon, thought it was maybe residue from the liniment I put on it once. That patch of yellowish crusty gunk has now grown to a tender patch that is red, scabby and crusty. Betadine has not killed it or helped at all. Neither has MTG. She gets a medicated shampoo once a week for other, previously assumed unrelated, skin issues she's had on and off since I got her in February. She gets scrubbed head to toe, so that spot would have been treated with the Betadine shampoo. Here's the best picture I could take. More than willing to get the vet out if necessary, but if anyone has any thoughts, they'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I'm not sure what it is but it looks like spots my gelding gets on his chest in the summer. I always just wash it really good with a mild soap/water, scratch as much of the scabbies off that I can and rub coconut oil into it. I love coconut oil and use it for pretty much everything :)
