Strange tongue discolouration. Any ideas?

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   June 3, 2013 09:50

Has anyone seen this before?

23 year old gelding, his tongue is an odd brown color, same thing happened last year- same time of year.  He is boarded in a different facility, no compulsive

behaviour happening like cribbing etc., appears to be an otherwise healthy gelding.

Thanks I appreciate any input. -Dr. D.

Aural Plaque

Question:  I bought a horse this fall that had slight aural plaques in her ears and treated them with vetricyn that helped some.. now with the winter coat she has it inside her legs and ventral stomach area... I have not treated her for a few months but she has become very head shy and very touchy under her belly.. any information would be helpful.. Thanks Rose

Answer:  Thanks for your question Rose.  Aural plaques are always limited to the inside of the ears,  I suspect a fungal or bacterial infection on the other parts. -Dr.D.

Interesting Case #10 - Stallion Has Rapid Weight Loss Updated Nov. 21 2012

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   November 15, 2012 07:25

Question:  November 14, 2012  Our old AQHA stallion (20) has lost an incredible amount of body condition in the past week, his coat went from gorgeous

 

to dried out and ugly, his body condition moved from generous to ribby.  He typically drinks maximum 5 gallons of water per day, he has quadrupled that consumption in the past 2 days.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The skin on his neck feels spongy. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                                             His feces were formed normally (above) but by later afternoon but had liquid         splatters in the snow around the main pile.

 

 

 

 

 

He has edema in all 4 legs.

 

 

Overall lethargy, he has been quiet the past 2 weeks but yesterday this went from quiet to lethargic.  I walked him around the yard and he was not even interested in looking at the main herd, let alone talking to them or strutting his manly self as he usually does. 

 

What is happening?

November 14, 2012 blood pulled, results will be available tomorrow morning.

November 15, 2012  Added electrolyte to his water.  Edema was slightly reduced in 3 legs, almost completely in one hind leg.  Neck is spongier.  He is less lethargic, raised his head and pricked his ears when I came into his pen (normally he charges over talking).  He drank 5 gallons of electrolyte and water this morning.  Showed interest in something at the north end of his pen (non horse related), yesterday he showed interest in nothing.

November 17, 2012  Blood work is within the norm, nothing unusual.  Swelling has subsided completely,  water consumption down to 6 1/2 gallons.  He is exhibiting close to his normal behavior-not quite as active as normal.  Continuing to monitor closely and will probably pull blood on him again.

November 21, 2012  This stallion is recovering very rapidly with  no intervention.  His water consumption and feed is back to normal levels for him.  He contracted strep through a crack in the skin, causing the edema.  His body attempted to clear the strep by flushing copious amounts of fluid via the kidneys.  We anticipate that he will regain the weight lost with no further troubles, however continually monitoring him is a necessity - he is old and it is winter in Saskatchewan.

Answer:  I am not sure what is happening but my recommendation is to pull blood on him immediately.  We will be able to determine if his kidneys are shutting down.  We have had 3 cases recently that are very similar to your description that were successfully treated.   Thanks Dr. D.
