My horse always finds a way to get a scratch, bump, etc. and our fencing is not so great... so its easy for her to figure out way to get hurt. Yesterday am I went to see her and her right knee was swollen and there was a "puncture" type wound at the very top right part of her knee joint. I cleaned it out and put furazone spray on it as its raining like crazy here and figured that would stay on better. She was not lame a bit and trotted out just fine. Today it was more swollen and felt like there was fluid in there.. but she didn't flinch when I touched it and pushed on it. She is not favoring it at all. My friend who is a vet said its probably no big deal but also could be in the joint and if the joint is infected/punctured could be really something I need the vet for. I have no issue bringing the vet out. I will def bring him out tmrw if its more swollen, etc... or even not better.. anyone have any experience with something like this??
Thanks,... more than likely I am calling vet tmrw but just figured I would post and see what happens.
