Sprained Tendon... Now What??
Ok so we found out what was wrong with my gelding. His back right tendon is sprained, resulting in some secondary back pain. The vet put him on an anti inflammatory, a muscle relaxer (for his back), and a cream that goes right on his leg. He's also on stall rest for 2 weeks. I know the medicine is going to help, but what are some things I can do to reduce the swelling and help him heal? Oh, and if you could give me some ideas on how to occupy him while he's in the stall, that would be great. Thnx!
