    Default Filly HOME! Jingles & advice please! AUTOIMMUE ISSUES!! Feed questions now (1/21)...

    She was vaccinated a couple days ago (Flu/Rhino/Patomac), doing just fine..then swelling at the injections site, this morning her jowl was inflamed, hind legs inflamed (vaccinated 4 days ago!?), she has a bite mark from another horse that went from normal size to not-so-normal -- it all happened so quickly....called vet out, 80 beets per min (twice the normal heart-rate!!!), petechia evident in gums and eyes at this point...off to the vet hospital...her fever went from 100.4 to 101.8 from early this am to 1pm. She was slightly depressed today, a happy foal yesterday. She is 6 months old - any & all advice greatly appreciated...not sure what on earth is going on...Lungs do sound fine.

    They are so fragile I hope being proactive plays in our favor...if she wasn't slightly quieter than normal this morning and her hind legs weren't quite so stocked up I might not have had the vet out so quickly (I thought maybe scratches as it was her white leg and the mud is terrible?)...but I had that gut feeling...

    I hope my little girl is OK

    It sounds to me as if you are taking all the right steps. Jingling that she is on her way back home soon.

    I had a filly (about 4 months old) show similar symptoms once - tuned out to be Purpura -- an illness associated with the bacteria that causes strangles.
    If that is it, it must be treated aggressively, from the start. She had very swollen legs (swelling occurred over a matter of hours), lethargy, discomfort moving, swollen glands in neck.
    Recovered 100% within days of starting treatment.
    Best wishes - let us know how she does.

    I hope she's fine in no time. The hospital will take good care of her.

    The babies are so fragile. I was terrified something just like this would happen to my colt when I started his vaccinations in October.

    Jingles for your filly!!!
