    help i have a lameo

    Hey I have a 15hh welsh section D cod called Thomas. He is of a good weight and a lovely temperment.
    Thomas used to have hind shoes on, and he kept throwing them of so I decided to have them taken of. But he was very foot sore with them of, so I got them put back on. I changed my farriers and the new farrier said he had a bruised off hind and he was very sore. But he was ok and over the past three weeks he has been going iffy every couple of weeks. Not lame and not sound. He was hoof tested today and the farrier said he was better but us there any advice that anyone can give me. I have him on a joint care supplement which I don't know is working. Any advice would be greatly appreachated.

    If you have some intermitant lameness issues it could have turned into an abcess. Maybe it is working it's way out. Sometimes they take awhile and can cause intermitant lameness, until they really get to the surface and then they are really lame. Maybe try soaking in some epsome salts and warm water and see if it gets any worse, this will draw it out and cause him more discomfort, but should bring it to the surface so it can blow, then he will be sound again. Good luck, hope you find the problem!

    only thing I have to add is that joint supplements can take up to 3 months to start working so if you just started the supplement you might not see a difference yet
