He's getting 2mg Bute a day (1 in the morning, the other in the evening), I've been hosing his shoulder & leg with cold water, & he's on 2 day stall rest with lots of fluffy shavings
He will for a few steps put weight on it, but then the next few none at all. He doesn't show any signs of not wanting to move (he started trying to trot off w/ my daughter to get to some grass). But then again, he's always been a stubborn mule, LOL and has rarely ever shown any pain in the past.
I'm wondering if any of you know of any other remedies for him? The sooner I can get him to put consistant weight on that leg, the sooner I can get him to stop bearing weight on his arthritic legs....sigh, if it's not one thing, it's anotherwink:
