I searched through some threads on this topic, but the only one I found was from 2009. I have a couple additional questions on this subject for anyone that might have some insight. My vet was out today for routine vax and wormer. I showed her the teeny bulb of swelling on his right hind at the very base of his cannon bone. I was told it's windpuff and isn't a concern as long as there's no heat, lameness, soreness, etc. She offered to inject with cortisone. Which I said "no thanks." to. My trainers says it is something that can be aggravated by the sudden heat we had today. (we went from 60 degree weather, to 80 degree weather overnight)
So what's the opinion here?
Can the heat make this issue worse?? Should I rethink the idea of the cortisone injections?
