Oh please, please, please can I have it???
Anonymous asked: PLEASE ANSWER: my horse has an abscess under his throat, im worried it's strangles, or could it just be an abscess? It's the size of a 50cent coin and he hasn't gone off the property either.
Strangles has more symptoms than just the swollen lymph nodes - if your horse doesn’t have a fever, isn’t snotty and isn’t coughing I wouldn’t be worried about strangles but I WOULD have the vet out to check any unusual mass.
just want to say that i knew a mare that had two big swellings under her jaw about 7-8 yrs ago, no other symptoms bright disposition, eating and drinking well, no nasal discharge, and lots of energy. But she was diagnosed with strangles, after the lumps ruptured…. but these swellings were a lot bigger than a coin..
