    Sorry this is going to be a bit long: I have an 8year old mare who I've owned since she was a weanling. Never been bred, never been near a barn with a stud, no chance she is pregnant. Never had a health issue, not even a hoof abscess (great feet) Was perfectly healthy until the beginning of...

    I have two horses, one is a 2 year old that just got back from the trainer 3 weeks ago and the other is a 9 year old. When the 2 year old came back from the trainer and I was riding her I noticed her nose would run and she would cough a few times...maybe two times when I started working her and...

    Okay Hi guys I am freshly new to this forum, so a big hello to you all :) Alrighty, I have an early 20s paint/spotted saddle horse with random swelling which likes to change legs. Weird, I know but he is a weird guy. His health history is just a medical book in and of itself, but to keep my post...

    I own a Hol. Tb. cross, rising 7, and I just started eventing with him last fall. I hack him out a lot and take showjumping lessons often, but I mostly train in dressage. About two months ago, his front tendon started swelling after a xc training so I let him rest for a week but seeing no...

    Last Wednesday I noticed that my mares hind left leg was swollen and warm. She was babying it and would rest it anytime she stood still. I talked to my boss and after seeing a video of her etc she told me to give her previcoc 2x a day until sunday night, along with cold hosing her leg. I took...

    All right all you mystery solvers... I've got one for you... I have three geldings... About a month ago (3/1/14) I purchased 2 packs of Fluvac Innovator 6. 2 packs because that's all they had in stock. I came home, gave them to two of my horses (Dually and Kinko). No issues with injection...

    My mare has a huge swelling on the front of her chest on one side. She lives out with two horses so it is possible she has been kicked. the vet was out and thinks that's the most likely cause. There is no heat in it and it appears to be very firm to touch, doesn't feel like an abbess. we trotted...

    Ok, My 12 year old mare went off her feed, so off to the vet, received 1 syringe Banamine they told me either IV or IM Injection. Of course IV taking about 20 minutes to work whilst IM would take about an hour. So having previous experience giving IV injections I proceeded that route. After...

    My mare has presented with a condition that has baffled the local vet who has many years experience treating horses. She presented with extreme pitting edema with widespread scabbiness across the entire underline from between the front legs to the teats and inside of flanks continuing between...

    For about two months now, my gelding Zeus has had a strange lump next to his spine. I noticed it one day after jumping him on a lunge line (teeny jumps-- maybe 6" at most). He didn't give me any signs that he was hurt, but I quit him and let him rest until I could get a chiropractor out. The...

    My horse's left front leg is swollen and is a little warm, but he is not lame at all. At all. It's so weird..I've never had a horse be lame but not actually lame... It happened the day after I turned him out to the spring field from his smaller paddock and I'm guessing he managed to hurt...

    I wanted to share my recent experience with everyone! I've been doing the 'horse thing' for 23 years and have never experienced anything quite like this. It's a big long winded but I intend to keep adding photos for everyone as we get further along in this. Maybe it will help someone in the...

    As always should put the disclaimed out first. I will have the vet coming out within the next week, he seems unconcerned. Okay, so long time, no talk. But in short I'm a little worried about Jake and thought I would throw this out there so I can possibly hear some answers before the vet comes...

    I am leasing a rescue right now, she is a Belgian Cross in her early teens. I have had her for about 2 months now. I went to see her today and noticed she had this baseball sized lump on her left hind leg, in the thigh, stifle area. I asked my trainer about it and she said that particular...

I have a 30 yr old Mare with cellulitis in her right rear leg, it's very swollen. How long does it take for swelling to go down once on antibiotics and anti-inflammatories? She was...
