Hello, I have an old mule ( he's 27 ) and he is arthritic.
In september he slipped and really messed up his shoulder
So this winter has not been kind to him :(
It is really cold out side and we see he is just walking in circles.....
I don't know if this means he's in pain or if he's cold.
These are the things I am doing to help with his shoulder:
An ostyo path came and streched him
I message his shoulder
He has a special cream for it
During the day he somtimes has on a light blankey with megnets in it.
Bedding him warm
Everymoring he gets this pill that is really stong and is suposed to help him, I can see a difrrence but not much but he can probly feel a diffrence.
If he is really sore somedays I give him 2 grams of bute.
Will walking him in the arena with poles make him feel better??
We let him loose in our alley way most of the time
So my main questions are:
Do you know of a supplament that only really helps the shoulders? The rest of his body is doing pretty good.
He has been on everything so it has to be somthing that is real popular I guess.
Will walking him over poles help his shoulders??
We are ordering him herbs that my mom has used on many horses and they work so my mom will try those on him. Have you ever used these with success?
Will making him strech his neck with a carrot help his shoulders?
Do ostyo paths do good with shoulder issues?
What will help his shoulders??
Will putting one of those giant horse treats with a string attached make them strech there neck if it is high enough? If so will it help his shoulders?
Sorry I was rambling on its just he's having a HORRIBLE HORRIBLE TIME it would be just fine if it was summer but its winter so it makes things 1,000 times worse :(
