trimming feet while anesthetized?
I asked this question in another thread but thought I'd start a new one in the hope of getting a quicker response. My 2 year old is getting gelded next Tuesday. I've had him 2 months and have been having some problems handling his feet. I've been working with him on this and he IS improving, but I still don't feel comfortable about calling a farrier and he REALLY needs a trim. Can a farrier trim his feet while he is under anesthetic, or does he have to be standing? This may be a really stupid question but I just thought I'd ask!
