SO its Jan. 3rd.. And my heart horse has pigeon fever.. YAY..
It started showing with a swollen knee (no lameness) a few days ago, and then this morning progressed to her whole leg being swollen (still no lameness) and a giant knot on her neck where it connects to her shoulder..
Vet said I should quaranteen (sp?) her, but shoot all of the horses have been together thus far, and share water and grain buckets..
I have never dealt with this, so should I quaranteen and scrub buckets, or just continue to turn them out together and share buckets?? Her abcess hasnt popped yet, and I plan on keeping her separated when it does to keep it clean and let it heal.. but until then?
