RE: [RC] Vaccination reaction - Jody Rogers-Buttram

Interesting.  I have been fighting with an injection reaction for a month now.  On the top of the rump mucsle.  Cash Pony doesn't do well taking shots there, and will never get another one.  Took him to the vet and had it ultrasounded for an abcess.  None thank goodness.  Just a big, sore lump.   He was sound finally this past week, and we tested him by riding easy for 11 miles.  He looked great the whole time, but then this morning (next morning after riding) he was sore on it again.  He would trot out ok, had to "work out of being off", but then was trotting fine.  But that top of the butt is sore to touch again.  I wondered if lite riding would help to work the rest of it out.

You can hot pack it a few times a day if they?ll let you (actually ideal would be fifteen minutes of warm followed by fifteen minutes nothing, then fifteen minutes of cold, and repeat ad infinitum), and give them a little bute for a day or so.  Exercise will help a little in that it increases overall circulation, and thus relieve swelling to some extent but anything short of fourth level dressage moves won?t do much to exercise those neck muscles directly.
Good luck.

Subject: [RC] Vaccination reaction
Two of my mares received their vaccinations on Friday and now they both have a huge swollen area on the neck where the shot was given.  I?ve never experienced this before with shots ? any suggestions as to what I should do?
