HAHAHA so typical ! Reminds me of a spoiled brat when they don't get their way.....I hate the your family has medical problems and while that may be more important , maybe you need to make better arrangements for your horse ( or horses)...God forbid somethings is seriously wrong , what are you doing to do just let the poor animal suffer? We have medical bills as well , but I know you can set up payment arrangements , and I know some vets do as well (at least in my area). Honestly , if you feel you cannot give your horse the best care possible for it , than maybe a new owner should be in the future.

If that is what it is it needs to be managed before bigger problems arise, especially as it is so close to the foot.
Sorry but a vet is required. Maybe you could send the description & some pictures to a vet at a lower cost than a visit or set up a payment plan?
I will go out tomorrow and see if it swelled back up. If so, I will call my vet and ask.

The only vet close to us charges a $70 call fee to our barn. Plus whatever you need done.

I may call the specialized equine vet clinic in the next state, and ask them. They are probably more experienced.

Yes, my human family is more important than my horse.

And if yours, isn't YOUR priorities are wrong.

So, someone in your human family had medical needs and you....gasp.....sought medical attention for them, what are you not getting about it being the same for your horse who you have now, apparently, had at least two threads regarding strange things going on CLEARLY indicating a health issue? If you are not able/willing to provide the needed medical care for the animal, put him in the care of someone who IS. MY priorities are such that if/when I am not able to provide what is NEEDED by an animal I have CHOSEN to take responsibility for I would do exactly that...so I'm just fine with my priorities, thanks

So we're also leaking fluids from other body areas.

Yikes! Your family is more important than your horse? Isn't your horse part of your family? I don't have a horse right now but I feel like my cats are part of my family and if they get sick or hurt I would do anything to help them including calling a Vet or taking them there and worry later about paying.....payment arrangements or a Credit Card?? Hope you speak to a Vet soon!!!
