Must be the season!!

Ok, so after Rex scaring the daylights out of me last week with his swollen face, Hugo has now decided it is his turn.

He has 2 lumps on his belly, perfectly matched & rock hard. They are more towards the back of his belly (not near the chest in other words). They weren't there yesterday either. Any suggestions.

Are they warm to the touch? Whn horses develope absesses they start off warm and hard and get soft as they prepare to burst. Haematomas are usually soft, and they are caused by broken blood vessels. Theyre more common in the brisket area however and I doubt you'd find two perfectly matched. Swelling under the belly can also be caused by congestive heart failure. When the heart is pumping blood out into the body. You would have to have an ultra ound done on the lungs to determine this. I hope your horse will be ok.

Tomorrows another day, and Im thirsty anyways, so bring on the rain.

To the touch they feel about the same temperature as the rest of his body.

The heart failure thing scares the so and so out of me. Would that kind of swelling normally be this far back and hard though?
