Loosie- they did multiple xrays and scans to pinpoint it. At first they suspected genetics since he's a mix of two dog breeds that are prone to wobblers, but being that he is a mixbreed and very few mixbreeds have been recorded to have wobblers, they kept searching and believe that it may have been from impact when he and his siblings (none of them survived) were thrown out of the car at less than 5 weeks old. He has multiple fusions on his vertebrae that caught with nerves and they're in such a location that its impossible for them to safely perform surgery, so we do hydrotherapy and lazer therapy with him instead. He actually walks with very little signs of 'dizziness' now, but if he misses and medication or treatments he recesses greatly.

Is you mare from a breed where this is common ? I hope that she heals.
I personally would not breed a mare or stallion that wobbles.
Was she out with other horses and possibly got kicked ? WNV? EEE Wee ?

No definitely not! She is very well bred! Best of Dutch and irish breeding neither of which are none for breeding wobblers! She was in great form today so hopefully tomorrow and the next days will be the same if not better! :)

Is there a vet in your area that has a portable x-ray machine? When my mare had a severe abscess, the vet suspected a broken cannon bone. My horse was literally standing on 3 legs and couldn't be trailered anywhere, so the vet brought her x-ray machine and took the photos in the barn. I don't know if that's something they can do for a vertebrae x-ray or not, but it might be worth finding out. I hope everything goes well for you and it's nothing major.

fractured vertebra, please help, spinal cord, wobbler
