Just had a call from the vet to say they want to keep Reeco in hospital for anouther day.
Apparently a spot on the rear of his pelvis lit up like a christmas tree on the scan and the specialist is 99.9% sure it is a fracture, They are going to ultrasound him tommorow (he was too radioactive today) to confirm. They say it is likely that it is an old injury that never healed correctly and was giving him pain when asked to get his botty under him and come into an outline (explains why I never had an issue when hacking out as we hack out on a lon rein) and he has reopened the fracture when he went up and over.
They also scoped him to have a look at his tummy and he has a couple of ulcers in there as well., possibly caused by the pain of this fracture and because he is a bit of a stressy pony anyway (ulcers are easily fixed though)
So I now have an answer, not a wonderful one and unfortunatly it is unlikely to be a quick fix but they wont give me a prognosis untill they have ultra sounded him.
Does anyone have any experiance of pelvic fractures in horses and how long the healing process takes/what it involves?
