    Unhappy Hock Help? also posted on Horse care thread

    Hey COTHERS...need some help/suggestions for a friend of mine...
    This is her information..

    My 19 year old horse has had a slightly swollen hock for approximately 3 weeks. He doesn't show signs of lameness in turnout or under saddle. He shifts his weight off that leg when he's standing & relaxing, almost picking it up at times. There's some heat and the swelling is mainly on the interior part of his hock.

    I initially applied DMSO, but that hasn't helped. Now I'm cold hosing and giving nsaid (bute). Any suggestions?
