Vulval OedemaSee chapter 8: Udder oedema for further information.
(487) Fluid accumulating in the vulva at or near farrowing is a common occurrence and in mild cases is a normal physiological process and of no consequence. Fig.10-27 shows an extreme case extending into the udder, where it can interfere with milk let down and production.
The fluid extends from the vulva between the legs and into the udder.
