I'm sorry, but I strongly disagree with the idea that you don't have any say in what kind of diagnostics and treatment your vet chooses. It's very important to get involved, discuss things with your vet, research options, and participate! As long as this is your horse, you have every right to determine what type of diagnostics are done and how treatment is pursued, if any.
