She told me that for a week we are to give him 2g of bute, cold hose him, and wrap him with a cooling linament.
I hear though that that can actually do more damage as it restricts the blood vessels.
What do you think?
What other things can I do to help him?
I got him on the softest place I can find so far, and am going to see if I can move him somewhere where I can put him on stall rest. That way he can have super cushy ground and not be picked on by ponies.
Any advice is apprechiated. All the information I can find seems to be conflcted.
Also, I had a "barefoot trimmer" out like three weeks ago. She also came out and rasped some more when she thought he had an absess. But when my trainer was out she said that his hoof was trimmed concave as opposed to flat?
Would there be any reason for this? Or do you think it has to do with laminitis (ie: sinking/rotation)
Please anything would be great
