Constantly swollen sheath?
Hello all. My gelding has a constantly swollen sheath. It's noticeably swollen- less so then it used to be but still obvious. I would say it is swollen to two or perhaps 3 times the usual size. It has the vets baffled- he has been treated with anti inflammatory and the usual bute and when that did nothing to the swelling they operated to check for cancers. He has been thoroughy cleaned and there is no sign of an irritant. There doesnt appear to be any stocking up in his legs at all.
He was wormed a month ago as I have heard redworm can cause this. The swelling goes up and down- sometimes it seems almost normal and then it goes back up. He tends to stand camped out and I often see him with his penis partially out and he is not peeing. He doesnt seem lethargic at all and appears to be very alert and happy. I have been cold hosing it, feeding tumeric for anti inflammatory and exercising as often it is just liquid causing the swelling. There doesnt appear to be any pain at all and its not hot like an infection, just swollen.
