Guess what?! It's not Strangles after all! Turns out Addie just as an actinomyces infection causing that abscess, so while that's not exactly great news, it's a lot better than Strangles since it's not communicable. Yes! Now I don't have to worry about all of the horses getting it :) Addie gets 6 weeks of antibiotics, but I think that this is definitely a good think. A huge weight off my shoulders.
