Hi there. Thanks for the question. I'd like to help you but I need more information. Where on the leg is the swelling? The hock? , the stifle? Or up in the groin? How long has it been there? Is he lame? Is it fluidy and soft or hard? Is it hot? Does it hurt him if you touch it?

I look forward to helping you. Thanks
