Swollen Knee - please help!
Getting frustrated here!
I finally got her to the vet and he said that the problem is her tendon. He said that it is from that injury she had on a cattle feeder 2 years ago. He said it swelled up with fluid and there is nothing he can really do for it.
He said that she is sound for riding and her movement will just be restricted in that leg. She is not in pain with it though so she is fine to ride he said. I've ridden her a few times in the last few days. When I rode her today she seemed plenty happy to be ridden, her walk and trot was slightly off because of her leg - however when I cantered her she was able to do it absolutely great! It didn't seem stiff at all.
Maybe its because she can keep that knee straighter - I don't know.
I'm wondering if any of you have heard of or experienced something similar and if there was anything you were able to do for the stiffness. The vet said it is not arthritis so a joint supplement wouldn't do much.
If anyone has any ideas I would be very interested in hearing them.
