Oh my Gosh! I just was searching HF for anything on pigeon fever, I just had the vet out not an hour ago, and she thinks my "Sunflower" has pigeon fever.

She did say this is not the season for it, as it is mainly spread by horn flies, but it could have been incubating or forming the abcess for months.

I don't know much about it.

I read your other post and my vet said that it can, besides being transmitted by flies, it can be soil borne, so after she lanced it and while it is draining that my horse should be in the stall, so as not to contaminate the pasture. When the abscess is draining is when it is contagious.
After she lanced the abscess, I also hosed and bleached the floor. I also need to change clothes after flushing out the wound before handling the other horses.
