Bump on canon bone
- Yesterday morning when out at the barn working horses I noticed a
large bump on my 5 yr old stallions canon bone. It is on the inside
of his right front leg. It is about the full length of the bone,
hard, a bit sore, and there is no sign of wound, but he isn't lame.
Has anyone had this before? It seems way too big to be a splint.
I called the on-call vet for advice until my vet could come out. She
said to ice it, wrap it and bute him, and a sweat wrap may help. If
I can't get my vet out today I will sweat it.
He lives in a box stall and the only things in there are a plastic
bucket/feeder (hooked to the wall on the ground), his grain bucket
(rubber), a waterer, and a corner grain feeder that I don't use
(plastic). Oh, and his cone.
