I'm going to try to resurrect this thread, because my gelding is having the exact same issue
, as of today. Swelling on just one side, at the lowest point of his sheath. No temp, acting totally normal. Seems to be peeing normally, but that can be tough to catch without a CCTV
. I'm calling my vet tomorrow if there's no change.
I'm assuming that he needs cleaned, but I have
recently changed bedding (normal supplier started contracting out to a wood pellet company, had to switch to bagged TSC shavings, at least for winter). Scout has also been essentially on stall rest, since the snow's too deep to lead him to the pasture, and the arena is a hard, icy wreck, so edema could make sense, too. Awesome thread, gave me some ideas I never thought of!
Looking for any new ideas, or an update on free_sprtd's gelding! Thank You All!
