I had a horse that had a hematoma on her stiffle. The vet had to come out three times for it. Once to drain it; it filled back up. So then he put a drain in it so it could drain for 3 days was it?, and then he came back out to remove the drain. She then got a hematoma on her knee a few weeks later...She was our "problem child"
oooh!! Hematoma completely slipped my mind!!:) I will have to second ur opinion!...oh we have a "problem child" too! She was starved so she's stunted, she didnt develop right so her psterns are extra long, her stifles are jacked up, her hips are un ever, and she has possums disease.... gah!!!:)
