A couple months ago we started using a new vet, JD, who I really, really like. She had a few thoughts on what it could be and recommended a different pro biotic and GI health supplement. I started him on it and while it did help, Peebs would still have occasional discharge. She also ran a fecal on him, and he came back with a zero egg count.
On Wednesday I noticed a little more discharge than normal, along with a little stocking up in both his right legs. He had had a light lunge on Tuesday and had Wednesday off, so I figured I just needed to get him out more. Thursday there was a lot more discharge down the back of his leg, and while I had him in the cross ties he farted and brown water came out. Seriously gross. And again, both right legs were swollen, as well as the right side of his sheath. I called JD, not super freaked out because he was sound, bright eyed and bushy tailed, and the swelling went down after I rode. He was also eating and drinking like normal and showed no signs of colic. JD called me back and agreed to look at him on Friday.
