Hi -
Im not sure this is really a breeding topic! But I cannot find any info anywhere - books, web anything...

My foal - She is 10mths, has swollen cheeks?? Its the second time shes had it - But I have seen it in my mare before at certain times of the year and the vet told me then it was probably something she is eating... But now the foal has it too - It tends to go down in 24hrs or so and it doesnt seem to hurt or effect her eating... This time I had wormed her with ivermectin the evening before and it was the following evening when I saw the swelling - I dont know if that is relevant - but I also wormed the mare and she didnt have it this time...

ANy ideas would be gratefully rec'd

Thanks
Kim

I don't have a clue! My Shire mare got all swollen in her jowls and around her mouth once last year and it resolved in about 24 hours, but we never figured out what it was.

Kim, can you get a picture of it?
Where exactly is the swelling?
Is it on the backside of the cheeks? Behind the ears? Throatlatch area?
Trying to get a better visual.
Any chance she packing hay or grass in her cheeks? They look like hamsters with full pouches (if you've ever seen that b4!)

Lori - I dont think so but I cant really get inside to have a look (shes a 10mth filly with a teenage human girls attitude and the biggest stubborn streak I know, well barr my boyfriend:0) She is certainly not uncomfortable. It was back again last night though.

Yes Heather - Its just like a hampster full of food!! : ) I was worried about strangles for a bit but My mare has had this before when we were at the old livery and now mire recently here too and the vet didnt know why and didnt much care - She said its probably something their eating but didnt want to take a look. Ill try and get a picture tonight. And heather - I wasnt up at silly o'clock in the morning - Its 8am here. I dont start work for half hr so I log on here for a bit - I have to wait till about 2pm for you guys to all get up!

A friend of mine bought some hay last year with mature seeded out tops (can't remember what type of grass it was that had the bushy kind of seed heads) that caused some swelling in the cheeks. Inside the cheeks and lips were some sores. Vet said this particular seeded out grass was an irritant to the horse's mouth but didn't cause any other problems (i.e. wasn't toxic).

These are pictures I took on my phone last night of the swelling- They didnt capture very well in a photo but I thought it was worth a try - as you can see, she hasnt been put off her grub at all! Any comments gratefully received - Anything at all!

Kim,

Just a suggestion, but when my gelding was less than a year old he got very swollen along his jaw line due to his molars coming in. I has so freaked I had the vet out to check and he had to tranq. him and discovered errupting molars that just caused him to swell...kind of like a baby teething?
I hope it all resolves it self!

Jano
