left hind leg lameness
My 2 yr old colt had a horrible experience when I had him gelded. The vet didn't give him enough sedative so when he went down, he fought it, twisting and torking his back. It was the worst experience I have ever witnessed and there was nothing I could do without putting myself in danger. He came out of the sedatation and seemed to be OK. This happened in may of this year and in August, I witnessed him playing with the digs, he kicked at them and trotted awaywith a slight limp in the back leg. Since then, I have witnessed the same situations except he will literally carry that back leg a few steps. I was hoping it would get better in time, but that has not been the case. Not sire if the bad experience caused this or the initial kick at the dogs. :( I do have an appointment with my vet next week but just wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem. Its only his left hind leg and some times worse than others. Muscle tear?
