    Default Waiting for the vet.... Sigh.... Jingles?

    So my 9yo Intermediate horse came in with swelling from about fetlock to knee on the outside of her RF. Slightly warm, not HUGE swelling (knee and fetlock are still bigger than the cannon!), not lame but clearly tender to firm pressure. Holds fingertip dents. flexor tendon area is clean.

    Waiting for vet appt to u/s and X-ray.... Thinking either a lateral splint injury or (god forbid) tweaked suspensory.... Meanwhile poulticing, stall rest and bute.....

    Ugh. Sorry. Jingling for good news for you.

    Btw, that ridiculous storm just pass through your way? The third band just blew through here and I thought I was headed to Oz.

    We've had a couple recently where it was cellulitis or scratches with all the terrible wet weather

    Fingers crossed that's all it is. Many a freakout (OMG career ending soft tissue injury!!!) has been caused by some sort of cellulitis infection. The heat and "denting" swelling is a recognizable symptom, especially when the horse is sound or only mildly uncomfortable. Check his temp-- often cellulitis infections will have a low fever (102ish). Hopefully some sweating and antibiotics are in your future, not months of stall rest.

    Still going to have the vet (can't get out until Tuesday) double check but yesterday the swelling was pretty much gone, she was still sound in hand, so I rode her for a few minutes (to see if I could feel any unsoundness that I couldn't see) and she was peachy. I guess it might have been a touch of cellulitis or a bug bite or something.....! Hope so!
