Help tic disease

One of my horses was diagnosed with Anaplasmosis which is a disease that horses can get from tics it causes a high fever and stiff joints. Luckily it is curable. They put a cathader in his neck to inject Oxyletracycline into for 5 days. They want me to keep him in the stall for 24/7 for 5 days. I do not stall my horses at all. Do you all agree with this? I can see until the fever comes down but no movement for 5 days I would think cause other problems. Please give me your thoughts. Thanks

I really can't say what to do but I ALWAYS follow my vets instructions, they know whats best.

They want the horse in the stall so he doesn't pull the catheter out.

That word "catheter" is why the horse needs to be kept in his stall and not out running around even in a tiny paddock area

I am ALL for following the instructions your Vet recommended - if you are concerned about your horse being stall-bound, talk to your Vet about it. Maybe there is a mild sedative that can be prescribed for him that might make his experience less uncomfortable. Best of luck!

Thanks everyone. I kept him in his stall but now his back legs are stocking up ":( he is now free and happy, hopefully in a day or two he will be back to normal.
