My old buddy Rooster (Pictured here) has had the same problem. The vet has injected his fetlock in the past but this time, he got no relief whatsoever. His x-rays look bad too. So old Rooster is now retired. I have him on 2 gms. Of Bute/day and he seems to be fairly comfortable. We also tried Surpass topical ointment. It didn't do much for Rooster, but his arthritis is pretty far advanced.
Have you had your horse's fetlock injected?
