Hi there. My thoroughbred horse has had a puffy fetlock, no heat, for the past week. He is almost 19 and does dressage & trail rides.
I've been treating it w/ ice, pillow wrapping, & Surpass, and have taken him out of work with short hand walks.
He is trotting sound both directions but I have reservations about putting him to work with this inflammation.
I am wondering if anyone else has seen this with their horse - inflammation without lameness. Advice on treatment?
He may need an ultrasound but I just wanted some feedback first.
