The vet was here today
Goodness what an ordeal. Poor Delbert... I feel so bad for him. The abcess came out on the hair line of his hoof,yuk it was nasty but the swelling is still from the knee down, Now on meds,Penicillin and someing for the swelling, Heat for sure in the knee and down to the hoof, poor guy was very upset over the shots. Vet say laminitis, did I spell that right? Caused from the abcess and all the wet ground, as it has been mud here for weeks on end. The vet thinks he pulled something in the mud because he was unsteady. Hope it will stop raining soon I have had more than enough of it. My farrier will come check on him Friday and it looks like a few weeks before he will be better. But at least now it is draining and he will feel some what better than he has. He has more shots to go, I hate to give them but... I have to.. Thanks guys I'll keep ya posted. Grayhorse
