Pelvic Fracture: need jingles and ideas
My 22 year old QH fractured his pelvis three days ago after my big horse chased him in the ice/snow. He slipped down a small incline and went down hard on his right side. He's been completely non-weight bearing for three days now on the R hind leg, and is really well sedated, on pain meds, and the vet is pptimistic. I'm considering trying a sling with him as I'm really worried about supporting limb laminitis, and I can't even pick the leg up off the ground to pick out his foot, put any sort of boot on, nothing. He's wearing a Back on Track sheet as well as leg wraps behind, and I have him on Siliforce for bone healing. Am I missing anything? He's my primary riding horse and a real gentleman, and I don't want to lose him.
