  • Panniculitis (fat necrosis)

    Curious to learn if anyone has dealt with this unusual condition with an adult horse. It has a little more research when present in foals but less is known about it with adult horses.

    Never heard of it, so I googled.

    Sorry you are dealing with this.

    How is the horse being treated?

      Did you see this? (warning, gross)

        Wow thank you for the link and the treatment for the donkey. Always interesting to see what has been tried and done.

        A biopsy is the next step to confirm what appears on a clinical exam to point towards panniculitis. That will happen in the next week. At this point there is no treatment for the condition and the cause is undetermined. It's the damndest thing that came out of the blue. There has been a separate issue with my mare for a few months so my regular vet suggested a chiro treatment. That DVM found the masses and said "I've never seen this before." He's been practicing since 1986. He bumped it back to my regular DVM who said "I've never seen this before either" and she did some baseline labs. I went to an equine specialist who *thinks* this could be what my mare is dealing with and this DVM is top tier. He treated a donkey for the condition about 5 years ago.

        An OB/GYN who I rode with on Saturday told me how she sees it present in her human patients so that too was good to learn about as an equine owner and female.

        If it's not panniculitis the other option is less promising so I guess I'm hoping it comes out the former.
