4yo TB candidate for surgery x-ray review

Hello All

4 yo TB in training with swollen inflammation in front left fetlock ,
Not lame ,
Only showing discomfort in his strides at high speed gallops on hard track

Currently in rest , 2 weeks ago he had pin firing treatment.

I enclosed the x-rays from December 2011 and April 2012

Is surgery is recommended ?
What are the chances of proper bone fusion ?
Any other ideas ?

Cheers,
Doron

What is the recommendation of your vet?

Vets

Hi

They are still puzzled at this
Because there are few other things to consider such as

Is the horse will be sound for racing.
Is the surgery costs are worthwhile economically and the horse welfare wise.
The owner wants to calculate the pro's and con's of that matter etc etc ..

Cheers,
Doron

This is still something that needs to be discussed with their vet, not a bunch of random strangers over the internet.

You have no way of knowing whether the strangers on the internet that you talk to will have any idea of what they are talking about.

On the Internet there is much more bad information than good and the people who are wrong are generally convinced they are correct.

I would ask your vet- if you aren't sure then you need to find another vet to get a 2nd opinion. If you still have questions call them back and ask to speak to them again.

Point well taken and agreed upon

The reason that I posted this thread was,
That my friend that own the horse insist on that.

Some times its hard to tell the owner the harsh reality,
And its even harder for them to accept it ,

Thanks for the honest and true posts

Cheers,
Doron
