horse has strangles:(
OK long story short we took in 2 new horses a 8 yr old paint mare that is OBESE and a very thin arabian gelding, we went to the house on tue. To look at them I rode them both. To see if they were actually broke. They looked fine, wed. Morning we brought them home. Wed night we noticed the paint was developing grape size lumps under jaw, yeserday morning I called vet because there were some by throat latch, I text him some pics because he is coming out mon regardless I had the appt already scheduled, he said it appears to be strangles from photos. My horses have been vaccinated and suppsobly these 2 have as well. Mine have not been introduced they are at our house, and the new ones are across the street in pasture. Iam so worried about her the vet said there was nothing he could do now and he would check her when he came but if she got worse as in having breathing problems he would come out asap. IAM TERRIEFIED!!! I can't sleep iam so worried about her I have checked on her about 10 time in the night, she has no problem eating, drinking, Iam worried about the gelding as well but he said there is no reason to seperate them he has already been exposed. Iam hoping someone can calm me down, lol iam just so worried about her she is the sweetest mare ever!! Oh and also no fever.
