Question about horses being lame...
So my mare has some mild arthritis, a club foot, and a slight broken back heel axis all in one leg/foot. She's always been off because of her disformed club hoof but her arthritis has gotten worse to the point where she was lame going clockwise but it was unnoticeable counter clockwise. Her bad foot is the left front but she was limping on the right front. So, I figured it was something to do with her right front but vet says that when horses are lame they limp on the foot opposite of the one in pain which I've never even heard..
Is this correct? Or maybe in my situation it is ?
Anyway she did put my mare on previcox though but I'm not so sure that she would be limping on her right front when her left front was the one that was the problem according to the vet. Like, it wasn't noticeable counter clockwise but clockwise she was noticeably head bobbing lame.
