Called Vet About Chance ...

WELL... there could be ALOT more going on with my horse then I thought.. and now im terrified to really find out WHAT.

I called the vet about Chances Lameness and they told me to put her on stall rest, cold hose her leg once - twice a day for 15 mins then wrap it with DMSL???? idk if thats the name.

Then I decided to ask if theres certin things that would cause a horse to only become "dangerous" in the winter.. and she asked if I changed how much I ride or.. if I changed where I ride and both were no.. then she thought lyme.. but since it only happens in teh winter she didn't think it was that.. So then seh started spitting out huge names that could be going on with her insides or overies... SO she suggested she come out and look at her and said that she would really liek to do a full physical and blood work on her.. then if I agree a possible ultrasound.

She will be coming out tuesday to look at chance.. if shes still lame she will do a xray. But shes mostly coming out for the full physical and such.

I forgot to mention the excessive weight gain and not being able to really lose it.. but ill mention that when seh comes out.

just wondering, what do you mean she gets 'dangerous' just in the winter ?

The DMSO won't hurt you physically if you get it on your skin, I have even used it on my VERY sore thumb joint. However, the garlic taste that you will get as soon as you get it on your hands is enough to make a person gag.
Many old cowboys buy DMSO for their "horses" and then use it for themselves for the old aches and pains.
