Mselizabeth, what does your vet say this is? Is he just familiar with *this* horse and because it's chronic for this horse, he knows there's nothing you can do about it? Did he say it is lymphedema or just severe stocking up? And is there nothing that can be done to keep it under control? Asking, to learn more, since this hits close to home for me...I thought I might lose my mare last year if her cellulitis got worse...she was on the verge of lymphedema and we had a long list of things we had to do every day to keep it from getting worse (she was still in the acute phase, though). Thanks!
I asked, he said it was probably just stalking up. And the fluids might actually be sweat that hasn't escaped yet. Instead (its 105F here right now.)
He said to put his food away from his water (to make him walk more.) He has a stall with run, he just doesn't choose to walk around haha. And if that doesn't help to put him on a small dose a daily bute.
I'm so sorry to hear about your mare. You can PM me if you'd like and we can talk one-on-one.
