newborn with jaw/side facial swelling
I have a friend that is giving the colt away and I'm getting him in a couple of weeks. He developed facial/jaw swelling about 12 hours after birth. Has anyone ever seen or heard of this? I am in contact with a wonderful vet at MSU and trying to get him possibly in for one of the senior vet classes and get him some help. Eating, drinking, nursing just fine, but won't be weaned for a couple more weeks. The swelling is rather large, but does not appear to be painful. One vet said to put him down after birth (I'm glad she didn't).
