My 4 yo paint was gelded a little over 2 years ago. For the past approx 8 to 9 months we have been dealing with a large abscess in the area where he was gelded. It fluctuates in size from golf ball to it's largest being slightly larger than a baseball. It occassionally drains a tan puss to clear liquid. Placed him on an antibiotic, didn't touch it. Cultured it came back MRSA. Opened it, flushed with betadine wash and did an ultrasound. Nothing showed on the ultrasound. Seemed to be clearing up and now it's back again. I have made multiple vet calls but since he isn't running a fever, is not affecting his preformance or any other part of his daily routine they aren't jumping to do anything. Advice? Opinions? Has anyone dealt with something like this before? I fear that if it does not stay encapsulated the infection could move elsewhere. Any ideas would be appreciated!
