I would just like to add - make sure you know how to feel for pulses in the legs. I would think with something like this that there is a laminitis risk. At the first sign of any pulses in the feet or heat in the hooves call the vet immediately.

Good luck! I hope it's just a minor flu/viral thing and will go away without much fuss :(

I do need to get better at feeling pulses and there was no noticable pulse or heat in his hooves.

I also hope it is only minor and fixes itself in a few days.

Well some of the swelling seems to have gone down and he is acting more like his old self. Now I just have to get another vet to scope him so we can hopefully work out this breathing issue he has.
