Same here. The redness bothers me more than the growths themselves. The fire ant theory makes some sense (though I have grazed horses and donkeys in fire ant infested pastures for years and never seen lesions exactly like that and never that bad. I hate to call a vet; but this looks like one of those times.


Thanks all, my Vet was out of town on Vacation when I posted this, he is back now and I am out of town when I get back I will bring her in and let you all know what the case is

Thanks again.

My guess is warts, if so they will run their course, but you should probably have the vet give you a real diagnoses not an opinion like mine.

What Could This Be

Postby A6gal » Fri Aug 19, 2005 11:53 am

Just wondering, did you ever get a diagnosis regarding the blisters on your horses nose?

I had a horse several months back that had a similiar problem, I just figured he'd gotten into fireants or into some bull nettle. I put some fura ointment on it and it cleared up after a couple weeks.

If it is not getting worse, maybe it is from some eating around some type of weed. My dog got sores like this but not so many or as large. I figured it was the thistle that she was in a while back. Just a thought...

Vesicular Stomatitis is spreading thruout the country


First thing that ran through my mind when I saw the picture.

What was the vet's diagnosis?

Basics needed to answer questions: age, weight, breed, sex. # affected vs # in group, feed type/amount, prior vaccinations, deworming, antibiotics, any recent changes....

More info = better answers.

Out of ignorance. Can a horse get sourmouth. That kind of looks like the last case I saw.

My wife wants to know if the gums are inflamed. She says she has seen herpes but usually the gums are swollen and inflamed.

definatly warts.

One of my grandpas halflingers has them and he uses compound W on them. The vet will have something safer to use on the nose and mouth though Id think.

Just as another precautionary measure: Leave your clippers in the box. Horses don't NEED to have their faces and ears clipped (unless perhaps a requirement?? for a show). They do quite well on their own for thousands of years without going to the beauty shop. ;-)

Bill, I have a filly that would disagree :D Silly thing LOVES to get her face and ears trimmed (especially the ears) Her brother is almost as fond of clippers (He prefers worming day over all others, though)

Did we never get a vet's opinion on this one?
