So im back from the barn
Turns out my horse has Lime disease for one. Which is why shes haveing a lot of behavioral changes in the winter because it is active right now. :( Shes being put on 6 week treatment for it.
About the lameness- this is what the paper says:
Chance is 1/5 grade off on the LF when circling to the left. When circling to the right, Chance appears to want to transition to the canter [this was my fault] Palpation of the LF is WNL [What does this mean?!] No back pain elicted on palation, just mild wither pain, and associated Nuchal ligament discomfort.
PD block ~ 98% improvement on circle left.
Lyme snap test - positive
O elected to treat Lyme diease first, and re evaluate after treatment..
She said if its the coffin bone.. like if its split or chipped chance would be put on 4 months rest or so.. then take xrays before shes put back into work to make 100% sure that its healed...
THIS IS HORRIBLE!!!!!!!
Vet bill was $611
One is because the lyme treatment was $410
