- - Swollen Leg (http://www.horseforum.com/horse-health/swollen-leg-13759/)
Pulled Elvis from the pasture today to find his leg swollen. Not on the joint. Before I call a vet, I was wondering what I could do? My plan of attack currently goes as follows:
• Clean with Dettol
• Look for ***** scabs; remove if needed
• Clean with antiseptic fluid; bandage if needed
Sound good? I don't really know... it's kinda funky. ;) I'm a little worried about the Dettol, but I've used it before and it's worked magic.
pictures would help.
I would say maybe cold hose it for 20 min or so.
Does it feel hot to the touch?
Working on pictures -- camera is being its usual annoying self.
It isn't hot, no, I believe I'll just cold hose it... Thanks!
I'd give a call to the vet if it's really swollen. Better to be safe than sorry.
