Limping on and off? Lymes?
So once again Lizzy has decided to spend my money, I'm pretty sure she has a crush on the vet. Anyway she has been limping on and off for almost 2 weeks now. The only thing that has changed is I added a half cup flax seed oil to her feed once a day and for the last week antihist.
It's a very slight limp, you really have to pay attention to notice. When I ride it's not there. She gets gimpy on gravel but her hooves are still growing out and good growth coming thru. Saturday I went for a ride. She looked a bit stiff/gimpy in morning I fed her and put two scoops msm in her feed. By the time I tacked up almost two hours later she was fine. No limp the rest of the day. Yesterday, barely anything for a few minutes. Today it was noticeable at the walk it's usually only at the trot.
She has been having a reluctance to move in the last two weeks. It's like she freezes her joints. With a bunch of persuading she will move but looks stiff at first stride.
She gets 60cc of red cell per day along with antihist twice a day. I'm thinking that could mask the lethargic symptoms of Lymes.
So what do you all think? Lymes or something else?
Ps I'm calling vet in morning. I will move up the visit to this week if they let me pay next week.
Edit: no heat swelling or any soreness I can find anywhere.
