Experiences with neck injections in an ataxic horse?
Hey folks - has anyone done neck injections on their horse with neck arthritis who was having neurological problems due to the arthritic changes?
We injected my horse's neck yesterday morning (combo of betamethasone and predef). He is most definitely sore today. The plan is a couple days of stall rest, and then back to light handwalking. In my discussions with our vets, my understanding is that it will take a few days to see any improvement (if we're going to get improvement at all) and at least a week for the 'roids to take full effect.
I am curious to hear about others' experiences with the procedure and how their horses responded.
