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!
He was the same vet I had float his teeth and do vaccinations. So he's pretty familiar with him.

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.

Thanks, MsE. Good to know. Thanks for the well wishes about my mare; I think she's is out of the woods now. The cellulitis cleared up and she hasn't had another occurrence since then. It was a very unusual infection, according to the vet, and I know what it looks like now so I can catch it sooner. Vet is very pleased with how she's come out of it so far.
