Compression in neck
Had the vet out today to try to get some joint/pain medication for my horse Dodge. When we were talking I also let her know about some other issues I've noticed that seemed strange, maybe vision or neurological. Were going to try a bute trial to see how much lameness clears up with that, and then get a reassessment to see how much might be neurological. Also advised to test for EPM (Anyone know what that costs and what the treatment costs? This vet was great with estimates so I'm sure she can break that down for me when we get there but she said it was slightly expensive)
She said he for sure has compression in his neck. He moved his neck normally to the right, but not to the left and had trouble moving it down. I can absolutely tell it's an issue for him, I've felt the effects of it when riding him. She said it's not serious enough to warrant him unsafe for riding, but it could be a component of the other things he's experiencing.
She said it can't be fixed. I was hoping to get some others thoughts on this neck compression, and if there's anything I can do for that.
