OK Jos, I'm hoping you can give me some more advice... I posted earlier about how my colt had a patent urachus. Last Saturday, the vet cauterized it with silver nitrate and per her instructions, have been giving him 4cc Naxcel 2X day. The very next day the umbilical stump was much drier and smaller, and he was only urniating from his sheath. I have been keeping an eye on it, like you advised. Yesterday evening I noticed that when he stopped to pee, there was a steady dripping out of the umbilical stump again. But just a dripping, not a stream like it was in the past. I've got a call into my vet but have not heard back yet. Do you think we could try the silver nitrate again, or would it be better to just go ahead and do something surgically? Other than this problem, everything else is perfectly fine with him.

Your vet will have to evaluate the situation to determine the best course of action, but if there is only a slight opening left, then further cauterization may be possible.

Thanks again! I feel so sorry for the little bugger. I'm starting to have to chase him around the stall when he knows it's time for his shot. I just wish this would hurry up and resolve itself.
