OK - I have to make some corrections, for I misunderstood what I was told by the barn yesterday.
They put a cold Poultice on him. I thought it was warm, because when I touched his leg with the wrap on, there was heat - but that was my misunderstanding.
So yes, the barn is doing a cold poultice on his leg. They are going to try to get the Poultice on his hock, if he will let them touch it that is.
The Banamine, my Vet freaked out when I told her they gave him Banamine. She said that she specifically said NO Banamine, only a low dose of bute - nothing more, nothing less.
She said cold hosing, but because it is very cold here right now, she advices ice cell wraps, or taking a towel and wetting it down, leaving it outside for a bit and then taking that and wrapping it on his leg/hock area for an hour.
When it warms up some, cold hosing for sure.
So I told the Barn Owner just now on the phone what my Vet said and they will go with it.
