He has this strange swelling on his forearm for some time now, maybe two months. We thought that this was a swelling from a fight in the pasture so we just massage the area and hose the leg with cold water. Usually this is enough and the swelling will disappear in a week or two. But this shows no signs whatsoever.
The vet came two days ago to x-ray the leg to see if it was something serious. He believed that it could be a case of Osteosarcoma but luckily it was not the case.
So he said that it's indeed a swelling from a hit. The place is very hard and firm, it's not soft at all. And the horse doesn't seem to be in pain at all, you can touch and massage the place with no problems. He can gallop with no problems.
The vet said that we should give him 10 ml of bute for 8 days and walk him everyday with or without the saddle. Do you think that the treatment is ok? Do you have opinions or advices for treating this?
Thank you for reading.
