Ok so I had the vet out today for my 7 year old OTTB gelding.
We started 30 days of training and had to stop because he was showing signs of soreness in his back (so I thought)
So during the exam the vet discovered that his issue is in his hocks and stifles. He does not suspect ring bone or bone chips. But is thinking it could just be signs of arthritis.
The vet recommened trying cosequin ASU, losing weight and trying a couple sessions of acupuncture. IF this doesnt work we will get more agressive with treatment. (possible hock injections)
So my question is has anyone had experience with acupuncture and did it work?!?
