My mare had her rear ankle injected on Tuesday evening. Fancy lameness vet said to keep her stalled for one day, turn-out the next day, hand walk the next day, ride her the next day (that's today), return to normal tomorrow. She felt better at a walk but still a bit off at a trot today.
How long has it taken for your horse/s to get to maximum improvment after a steroid injection to the joint?
I'm considering adding Pentosan, because she is 16, and if she has arthritic changes in this joint, chances are that there are or will be others. When would you do that? My vet doesn't seem to really be familiar with Pentosan, and fancy lameness vet thinks she is fine with just the injection, since she "just does trails". Since we ride pretty hard, I want her as good as she can be. She's my perfect match of a heart horse, so I also want her to feel as good as she can, riding or not.
