I've owned horses for well over 10 years and my barrel horse for the last five years ruptured his suspensory ligaments (both in front legs)
I didn't know this, our last vet told us it was his tendons, and he couldn't be ridden anymore.
But our new vet confirmed that it was his suspensory ligaments, and that he needed treatment ASAP.
He has a vet appt. Tomorrow to start shock-wave therapy, and I'm getting the rare earth boots for his as suggested by my vet, but is there anything else that I can do for my horse (Jake) in the meantime? This injury, unfortunately is a year old, and he is STILL in pain. :/
Any suggestions?! Thanks!
