bump on belly
I noticed my arabian horse has a bump on his belly, it is about 3'' round and protudes about half a inch.Does not bother him at all.I had someone come look at it (a vet tech) and she thinks its a strained muscle, it is attached to the abdomel (sp?)wall and softens up the more its touched,or its also possible my paint horse kicked him.I noticed the bump about 2-3 days ago and it has gotten a little bigger.Has anyone ever had this happen to your horse? What do I do, anything?? I'm calling the vet tomorrow(he also needs his teeth floated) to make a appointment.Also a week in a half ago I rode him hard, lots of running, cause he didnt want to stop.lol Could that have anything to do with it?? thanks
I'm wondering if it is perhaps a hernia? But hard to tell without seeing it. Can you push it back inside the abdominal cavity? Or is is between the muscle and the skin?
Or as its getting bigger, perhaps its an abcess. But abcesses are usually hard so its probably not.
Let us know how it goes with the vet!
no it cant be pushed up the abdominal cavity, it is between the muscle and the skin.I was thinking it was a hernia, but don't know. The vet is calling me tomorrow to set up a app. will let you know, thanks
I would definitely have your vet look at it. I'm in a super paranoid mood, we found bumps on my mare's tummy and they turned out to be a tumor (one giant one).
They don't look like this do they?:
no, they dont look like that, here are some pics of his bump
SUPERMANE; what did they do with your mare? remove them?
sounds like she will be ok, glad to hear that:D do the pics I posted like anything like yours? they don't to me. I am really worried about my boy.thanks
ok, thanks, the vet will call me tomorrow to set up a appointment, I hope everything goes good with your mare.:D
