Yep, if this is quittor, you need to take assertive action NOW! The longer you mess around, the more likelihood of the horse being lame forever/needing to be put down.

Gees Louise thanks cherie! Wish I'd come in here ages ago. It's been so so difficult getting accurate information or anyone to help me! Even to get a vet to answer their phone and don't get me wrong I know they are all flat out but it's overwhelming being ignorant and uncertain whats best for your horse

^Cos it's not a common thing these days. It's infection of the lateral cartilages, can come from severe white line disease in the quarters and can progress to a bone infection if not treated effectively.

Agree with Cherie. Good luck getting those drugs. Especially Chloramphenicol.

I had used it on cattle to save the cow's life. When I did that I owned the cow forever... because of its residual half life. It sure does work on Gram Negative organisms such as those in abscesses.
