Lymphangitis from Wound
Hi, my Saddlebred mare hurt herself on her upper front legs yesterday. She gave herself two wounds, and I had the vet come out, and she is currently on a 5 day 2X a day treatment of anti-biotics. She has gotten Lymphangitis on her left leg, and the swelling goes from her knee to back up the rest of the leg to her body. The anti-biotics will take care of the infection, because I started them last night, and the vet gave her a shot as well, but what can I do to take care of the swelling? Will this be chronic, because I have heard if it happens once, it is more likely to happen again? Also, she is in a resricted pasture, maybe 25 feet X 25 feet, should I hand-walk her?
