My 20 year old stallion woke up today with extremely swollen (about 3 times normal size) testicles and it then went down his legs. He now has all for legs very swollen and still the swollen testicles. He also has a temperature of 106! I called my vet and his first comment was "sounds like Brucelosis." Well, I got the quarantine results back a week ago (my horses are from Costa Rica and I am living in Nicaragua) and they came back negative for Brucelosis. Some people say you can't trust the Agriculture agency here so I'm wondering if my vet could possibly be right.
Unfortunately my vet is in another city and can't come until tomorrow and there is no other vet here. We have cold sacked him and given him an anibiotic and some bute per my vets reccomendation.
Does anyone have any other ideas as to what this could possibly be? I'm really doubting Brucelosis, but can't think of any other option.
Background: I put him with a mare of mine about 2 weeks ago. She also has some vaginal discharge so we are wondering if it's possible that one of them has an STI and that one gave it to the other?
