I think my daughters pony may have gotten bit by something. She always has a fly sheet on and when she doesn't she usually has a saddle on.
Its right in the middle of her back to the right of her spine the area has swelled up to approx 5 inches in diameter. It looks like it has a small head that is turning a darker color. I rinsed it with cool water.

She is eating and drinking no problem. She flenches when I rinse it or touch it.
I have given her some benadryl (just 3 tabs) I put some cortisone creme on the smaller spot that is darker in color and some caladryl lotion.
I called the vet and he is on vacation for 2 weeks.
I don't even know how to put a banadage on this area.
Today it opened up.
Any advice ?
