Extreme lameness in horses front legs after trimmed
I have no clue what I should be doing for my poor horse. He got trimmed about a month ago and ever since he has not been the same. The bare foot farrier told me that he trimmed my horse a little short this time for reasons unknown. After farrier trimmed my horse, He could hardly walk. I gave it a few days thinking that my horse Dakota had always been sore after a trimming, and didn't think any thing about it. A couple days after Dakota got trimmed I took him in for a chiropractic appointment, and the vet told me that my horse was trimmed extremely short. I waited a week like the vet told me too, because he said let's see how this adjustment works and see how he is moving after a week also to see if Dakota's hoof soreness went away. So I called the farrier back, and when he got to where my horse was. He blamed my horses lameness on everyone else that had seen and worked on my horse except himself. After arguing back and forth he finally admitted to trimming too short, and to have Dakota wear boots only at night for a week, and see how he does. My dakota is still extremely lame, and is now when walking forward will hardly bend his front legs. He is also when walking crossing his front legs. I keep giving him banamine and bute to try and help his pain. I have also been rubbing thermoflex on his legs.i have also noticed that he is laying down a lot. I do not know what to do to try and get my horse from not being in pain when trying to move around.
