Help! Abscess under my filly's jaw???
My paint filly Classy is turning two this coming June, and a couple weeks ago, I noticed she had a bit of a lump under her jaw mid-way. Thought "hmm, she must be getting a wolf tooth", and left it at that.
Yesterday I felt under there again, and it's turned into a bigger crusty kind of ugly abscess--and she won't let let me near there to look at it closer. No other signs of sickness, lethargy or inability to eat... is this a wolf tooth gone bad??? What should I do for her???
I'd take pics, but she's so furry with her winter coat (I live in western Canada), you wouldn't be able to see anything.
