Swelling/Stump?

Post by midwest77 » Sat Jun 15, 2019 8:38 am

Hi, our barrow had been castrated and had swelling. We had hit it with a round of meds to bring the swelling down and it did greatly. We were left with a little bit of a hard swell that our vet calls a stump. She said that she did not want to remove it since it would take too long to repair. She said to leave it and that u won’t get dinged in the show ring for it, has anyone had this problem before? If so, what did u do?
