    Exclamation Strangles+other diseases??

    Hello, I have a almost 5 yo paint/qh gelding. He is currently quite sick, the vet is almost positive that he does have strangles, but she believes he doesnt just have that. His legs are very like swelled, im not quite sure if that's the word I should use, they are larger than normal size, he is also foaming at the mouth and he is currently on imfamatory because one half of his face/jaw area is veryy large as well compared to the other, he also has I think an abses near his jaw on that same side. He is also on antibiotics. Twice a day for 5 days and the imfamatory once a day for 3 days. Any opinions on what this is,please help, I am worried sick, :(
