Today one of my geldings came in with tender lumps on the underside of his jaw, swollen glands behind his jaw on both sides, and two small sores just in front of his throatlatch.
No runny nose, no smell, normal temp.
How freaked out should I be??
Our new guy got out of quarentine with a clean bill of health on april 12, but I'm more worred about the (sketchy) neighbor horses who they split the fence with for a day on the 17th.
I'm freaking out right now, we have a trip out of the country planned! How quickly can a horse pass a health check after a bout with strangles???
(((Discaimer: I already called the vet, we're doing blood draws ASAP. I just want to know how bad to freak in the meantime....)))
