So I can not get enough input on this subject. Here is my story.. 10 yr old appy great for years then started getting crabby and over sensitive. Checked saddle, checked work routine, watched lameness etc..test for lyme and has a middle grey area return at 280 ( I think)so we treat and he is better. Next year same things start happening we just treat.. he gets better..went a year and a half (yippee) no issues, now again same issues but worse he has all of the above and tail swishing and pawing when mounted fighting with pasture mates, and muscle loss beyond winter layoff. Ok, so we test numbers are low grey at 175 and vet doesnt want to treat. Now what? I thought ulcers however he is in pasture board, w 2 flakes of alfalfa and all he can eat 1st cutting, low amount of grain, no work just a walk in the field and these are supposed to help reduce ulcers. Anyone have suggestions or story of lyme or ulcer issues?
