    Wow, that's weird. No ideas, just sending good thoughts that you get it figured out.

    Personally I would not wrap, if you cannot increase turnout I'd leave well enough alone. My horse has lymphangitis and sometimes the leg looks huge from her standing around, but my vet said leave it...

    I have a goat and my herd bound mare is not attached to her at all. A mini or burro would be better, IMO.

    Is the horse actually lame or uncomfortable? If not, is it really necessary to do something about it?

    My horse has damage from cellulitis and the leg sometimes looks swollen if she stands around....

    Glad to hear he's better. I've found exercise to be very beneficial once the initial soreness is gone. That's great you caught it before the hair falls out.

    Oops, sorry, I missed that.

    In that case I'd give the powder a go if the vet is ok with it.

    Another thought is ranitidine, if you can dose 3x a day. You can buy it cheaply off amazon. Might be...

    Same here. I've been happy with the results. I do it once a year.

    I've found the traction on the boots is not quite enough depending on the time of year, you may need to add the studs, which is easiest to do on cavallos. YMMV

    I use a piece of carrot for previcox, poke a hole in it with a clean hoof pick.

    My horse always responded to SMZs (orally) so it's easy to have them on hand. The usual protocol is banamine, bute, cold hosing and SMZs for my horse. That said, I've started treatment ASAP before it...

    The prerace med is compounded so you don't know exactly what you are getting and I don't think it's made in the US. Personally with confirmed ulcers and hospitalization I'd pony up the cash for UG,...

    You can also use petroleum jelly to keep the skin from drying out. My vet recommends a clay poultice after the initial inflammation goes down. You cannot cold hose it too much in the early stages!

    You can also try hoof boots also, renegades easy boots and cavallo all have that option.

    I ride on grass at home and use cavallo hoof boots with studs for better traction. I find grass and even a small incline can cause problems, wet or dry. I use studs on all four. Even shod horses had...

    I would be vigilant in taking the horses temp and cold hosing. Serum leakage can indicate cellulitis, which is usually accompanied by a fever. Is the hair falling out at all?

    Can you give banamine...

    I use the human liniment from Walmart. It's green and also contains rubbing alcohol. Way cheaper than horse products. You can find it near the first aid products.

    I also dilute it with apple cider...

    Sigafoos worked well for my horse. Zero issues with wet weather. Very useful therapeutic option.

    If he's not running I'd just keep at it. It took a long time for my older mare to get used to us leaving (over a year), now it's a non event. And this mare was as herd bound as they come.

    We have...

    Ugh, thanks for the info, guys.

    I've had much better results with pentaussie compared with adequan, so this is a bummer.

    One online source said mid July for pentaussie(??), smartpak says end of...

    My vet won't write an Rx for anything compounded.

    While not ideal, I find switching brands of senior feeds keeps her more interested. Mine wouldn't touch calf manna.
