    Supplements to help with swelling following suspensory injury?

    Yes that was them 🙈 oh no I had seen quite a few reviews and seemed positive however I've had confirmation that my insurance is covering a second claim I had pending and they may cover an arc machine to aid in her treatment so that would be great and if they do then I will keep everything...

    Supplements to help with swelling following suspensory injury?

    Thank you,I had been looking at magnetic boots and magnetic therapy and the equi streemz look to have good reviews. I will have a word with the vet on Monday, I know they were reluctant to give her Bute as didn't want her to over do the leg but she's pretty placid anyway and is just wandering...

    Supplements to help with swelling following suspensory injury?

    Thank you, I will give that a go , it's going to be a long road to it healing (hopefully fully) but anything I can do in the mean time to help her I'm willing to try 😊

    Supplements to help with swelling following suspensory injury?

    Seriously! I haven't asked for a magic healing supplement! I've asked for something that might help reduce the swelling in her leg, not heal it!

    Supplements to help with swelling following suspensory injury?

    She's stabled over night and out during the day which is the yard routine until around may time when they have 24 hour turnout over summer. Unfortunately the swelling doesn't always go down when she's out, she will be scanned again in around a month to see if there is any healing from the last...

    Supplements to help with swelling following suspensory injury?

    There's no need to be like that! I have properly read it , there's no where on the tub that says it's anti inflammatory. If you haven't got anything helpful to say then don't bother saying anything at all. It was a general question for some advice and I've used the supplement to boost her...

    Supplements to help with swelling following suspensory injury?

    Oh really? I didn't realise that, I thought it was more to help their immune system and give everything a boost following injury illness etc but never realised it was anti inflammatory also , thank you that's good to know 😊 however the leg is still swelling up and down so perhaps I could feed...

    Thank you , i struggle to make decisions at the best of times!! your right though there is no right answer without being able to look into the future ( which if i could od that i would definatly put tomorrow lottery on!) and knowing how her skin will cope at a different yard on different soil...

    Wwyd re stable or living out

    Hi I'm sorry your horse is injured too :( i'm completly with you on that one and i think my concern is the grass livery option i have doesn't have any shelter although she would be rugged up and there are some hedges but she can't get right up to them as a track runs round the outside of the...

    Wwyd re stable or living out

    Yes thats true, unfortunately i have made the decision to take the stable for now and then if she's better away from the land she's currently on then to move her and let her live out, the vet thought this was the best option as she can be stabld over night and out of the mud for her skin...

    Suspensory Branch Injury

    when you say rest is detrimental do they mean complete rest as in box rest ( which she has already done 5 months) or rest from work and just field rest? i'm trying to find a happy medium for my horses mental well being and physical well being and feel like i'm failing at both! that does look...

    Suspensory Branch Injury

    Thank you that's really interesting, so was his line of thinking that if the leg is just left without any intervention and without using it the scar tissue would be worse? And therefor the risk of reinjury alot higher? I'm so pleased he came sound for you 😊 and especially at that level, I will...

    How long before bringing back into work

    Yeah that's be plan she will be scanned in July but now the vet is saying to keep her in more and not turn out 24/7 and she may come back into work sooner but I'm in no desperate rush to ger back on her as just want to do it when then time is right, and was shocked they said sooner than 6 months...

    How long before bringing back into work

    I haven't iced it however she was bandaged overnight whilst she was on box rest. The plan is to turn her away for 6 months however the vet who operated on her is now saying not to and keep her stabled overnight with daily turnout but my other local vet is saying to turn away arghhh! And the...

    I feel your pain, i'm about to turn my mare away with an injury after being on box rest for 5 months and worried to death , she will be on a grass livery yard and out on around 3 acres with 2 other horses with haylege in the filed but no shelters other than their rugs. I'm flapping as shes's...

    Wwyd re stable or living out

    From a human point of view I would but I think I felt so encouraged to give living out a go I then did feel that it was right for her and to give her the best break emotionally and physically and hopefully time to heal, I decided I would deal with the mud fever if and when it comes and go from...

    Wwyd re stable or living out

    Well after all of the encouragement from you lovely people to turn my mare away I was all prepared for next weekend and about to order a new rug and then the vet who operated on her leg from the hospital rang so explained where we are at and that I am turning her away and he said he really...

    Wwyd re stable or living out

    Yes that is true, I just worry that if she's just gonna have it all the time and she's out then I don't know what I would do, unfortunately no there's not , I would have to look around and see if any had a space to take her. It certainly isn't an easy decision at all, if only I was a millionaire...

    Wwyd re stable or living out

    Yeah that is true, I am on the edge of just making the leap and turning her away but the mud fever worry is still niggling away at me ☚ī¸ she she's had it so badly each winter and has white legs with pink skin that is she now just going to have it for the rest of her life as the vet did say once...

    Heat bumps along spine?

    Could it be bcuase he's been freshly clipped? was your numnah pulled right up in to the gullet of your saddle? you could try riding with no numnah and see if he still gets it incase he;s having a reaction to any washing powder you have used etc

    Wwyd re stable or living out

    The grass livery has no mud at the moment so holding up well, i'm just doubting my decision incase i'm making it becuase grass livery is nearer or cheaper than stable option and i really like the stable option so if that was in the location of the grass livery option then maybe i would have gone...

    Wwyd re stable or living out

    I've just seen that were expecting another "beast from the east" with temperatures feeling like minus 17, how do you cope with extreme weather like that? I hope it's doesn't come right when my poor horse is about to be turned away , that would be a shock to the system for her

    Wwyd re stable or living out

    I suppose I probably see turning away as a short term option and if she comes sound then I'd probably want to move her to the yard further from home with a stable as I see that as the long term place I would like to be but I suppose if she doesn't come sound enough to be ridden then she might as...

    Wwyd re stable or living out

    Yes your right I'm definitely putting human emotions on her and we do have a new house to renovate so the freeing up of some time would definitely be a benefit. I agree with you on the boosting of her immune system as it's definitely none existent, the mud fever has been so bad that she has had...

    Wwyd re stable or living out

    Yes it definitely in the land they all have issues at the yard in one way or another so staying there is not an option. The facilities at either of my options are neither here nor there at the moment either until she (hopefully) comes back into work so I suppose it boils down to stable or no...

    Yes I'll be feeding her and checking her everyday I've just never had a field kept horse so flapping now and her mud fever has led to cellulitis for the last 4 years at current yard so now panicking incase this happens whilst turned away. I really like the yard with the stable as it's much more...
