hard lump 5inchs above her bellybutten

My horse has a hard lump about 5 inches from her belly butten she dose not act in pain and is eating well. And it does not seem to bother her when you push on it.

Please have your vet check her for an abdominal hernia. It is a gap in the abdominal wall that can allow a loop of bowel to push through. If this happens that loop can become "strangled" which can be very bad.

I am not saying that is what she has....it could be simple edema......but have it checked out.

But it is above her belly button thought towards her head.

Please listen to the above advise and have a vet see your horse.

It isn't something that you have to jump right on. I wouldn't put much work on the horse until she is cleared. It isn't that uncommon in horses. . It can often be surgically repaired as well.

A quick google search found an article that might help.

Again, I am not saying that this is definitely what your horse has.....just a possibility.

It looks more like a hernia than an Edina. ESP if it's gaining size. You should not work this horse until it is seen by a vet.
