Hives following strangles.....any connection?
My horse has had strangles for several weeks now and is definitely on the mend. His node that burst open is almost closed and he is his perky self again. This weekend he broke out in hives for a couple of days and now they are all gone but two small whelps. I don't quite know what to make of this....I introduced a new Senior feed to him just before the hives appeared, but I introduced it gradually with the feed he'd been on. I immediately stopped the new feed and the hives are almost gone. Think I will go a few days with no feed at all and then try a little of the new feed on him. Hopefully he'll handle it with noe reaction. Any suggestions anyone? Has anyone else had a hives reaction after strangles ? Thanks so much!!!
