I think my new gelding has some type of bladder infection or something. I first noticed him dripping while eating hay over a week ago. Called my Vet and he said geldings not likely to get UTI so it could just be behavior so just watch him. Asked if it would be okay to ride him and he said "ride the snot out of him". Well it has gotten worse. Now anytime he is relaxed,extended he is dripping clear pee. Rode with a friend this weekend and had her watch when he peed. Good stream at first yellow color but at the end very dark brown then small stream,plus a groan at the end. They are turned out in the pasture durning the day so I only see them at feedings and after 5pm in the paddock. Its dark at the am feeding, they come up when I get home at 5pm so I only have a few hours to watch before its dark. He is eating and drinking fine.
Vet is comming tomorrow( I called over the weekend but no one could/would come out until WEd.
What I am really worried about is what caused this problem. From everthing I read it does not sound good. Anything from stones to cancer and I am just sick with worry.
We have only had him 3 mths. He is AQHA gelding 5 yrs old at 16h. I bought him from my farrier who was just getting out of showing and he had been in the pasture for 1.5 yrs only ridden about 15 times.
Vet was out in Dec and he had all shots and teeth floated.
PLEASE HAS ANYONE HAD A GELDING WITH UTI?
