My boy Macho has avery aggressive form of Navicular.
He to is getting progressivelu worse and then he rally's.
Get a good lamenes vet with a Good track record.
I wishI had had his shoes pulled for a better xrays.
Navicular usually takes years. If I had a good vet to begin with I could have done more in therapy shoes. The vet saw alittle arthritis and said my qh moved like a paso. Oh yea the trot becomes shortened.
From the get go I knew something was wrong.
He was very stiff and had trouble picking up his leads.
He stsrted walking more on his toes hence had a contracted heels kind of a club foot
I have tried navicular saver, hla , cortoflex you name it. no luck.
His coat is beautiful that's it. I walk him apply linament and keep his weight down. But the other day he was so bad I called the chiropractor by time she got there he was better.
Oh yea that seems to hsppen alot .
He starts walking better when someone shows up.
Bute helps but is not a fix.
I know I will have to make that decision soon even his back end.is.stiffening up.
Walking is good on straight on a good level soft surface I had
quite lunging him. Movement is.critical for the circulation.
