So the last couple days Joeys back ankles have been swollen and warm..but there was nothing on them. So I excercised him and iced them (he wasn't lame) Today I get to the barn and his left rear ankle blew up with mud fever.. like it seemed to come from nowhere because there was no stuff on his ankles yesterday. And his other back leg has the starts of it. I picked off as much as would come off and scrubbed it with an anti-fungal anti-bacterial alchohol equine scrub thing I got from the vet a couple months ago for a different fungal issue. And other than that Im leaving it dry (I assume this would make sense since fungus grows in moisture no?) Anyways. I know its not a good idea to turn him out (muddy ground). Other than that.. any suggestions? Any scrub that works really well? Sprays? Ointments? Anything you can recommend? Also once its gone, is there anything I can do to try and prevent it because I would like to turn him out regularly once hes better again. **edit i shaved his legs as best as possible as well* Thanks guys!
