Have a great holiday season!
It’s AAE story-time! Horses of 2018:
Dia and Noche
Dia’s was also vet checked and her dental, vaccines and hoof care were updated. Her vet check went pretty well. She had multiple melanomas under, around, and on her tail and a few in other areas. Did I say multiple? I meant a lot! They’re often not a problem, but she had two around her rectal area that needed to be removed. One was ulcerated and painful, and flies would be a big nuisance if left alone. The other was internal, on or near her anal sphincter, and it was golf ball sized. It was pushing her rectum to the side. If not removed, it would likely continue to grow and push more into the rectum and block the passage of manure. Dia also had a melanoma in the corner of her mouth on the left side. This one was removed so she could comfortably wear a bit, should she be ridden with a bit in the future. Last, but not least, she had a large melanoma on her hip area. It was raised and in an area where it would be easy to catch on gates or other things she brushed against, an injury ready to happen. Though it wasn’t ulcerated or otherwise an issue, it made sense to remove when the others were removed. The melanomas were removed and she recovered nicely, thought he hip area was deep and healing would take time. Dia was easy to handle; she was good with the farrier; and she also enjoy grooming and attention.
