I'm just surprised since I have never heard of anyone actually taking xrays for wld. I didn't even think it would even show on an xray. Shows how much I know! LOL
I had a horse years ago with wld that was diagnosed by my farrier. If I remember right he dug into it as far as he could and I treated it with and it went away.
I know exactly what you mean about not getting a call back while you are waiting. I hate to wait on things like this, big or small. I too would appreciate being told even by the receptionist that the vet will be with me as soon as they could.
Although, if they said Tues or Wed I too think it's inconsiderate of them not calling you back by now.
My vet is very busy too since she is the only horse vet for miles around. What she does is do her call backs while she is traveling to a destination. Works for me.
But, please take heart in the fact that while wld is no fun, it's also something not to be overly worried about. It needs to be taken care of, but should be fine.
Didn't your vet give you any instructions on how to treat it in the meantime?
Good luck, hopefully they have called you back by now.
