My gelding developed an odd swollen large lump right at the top of his scapula. This happened overnight after a non-riding day. This is not a bug bite and is not a saddle issue.
The swelling is not showing signs of heat and is not changing in size. It is very firm... seems more like a deep tissue swelling.
I have done bute and box rest and cold therapy for a week with no result. He is completely sound, however, he is bothered when I press on the swollen area.
I am getting ready to contact a vet, however was wondering if
Anyone has experienced this with their horse??
Pictures are below, 3 of the swollen side and 1 picture of his regular non- swollen side. The swelling is to the right of myhand.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!!! :)
