    Try again or try a different vet and see what they say or have you tried a chiro he could be out some were. But I for one like whinny would be following it up 3 weeks is to long.

    his03, welcome to the forum. Change vets. Vets should tell you what is wrong with the 'patient' and not send you off with medication without knowing what to expect.

    horse with limp

    My boy has been lame for 6 weeks on and off now and the vet said he had tendon damage.. Farrier came yesterday and said Bear had bruised heels.. Both hooves on the far side were affected.. First time I've even seen it.. Bear was sorer for longer with the first hoof and the second one 'blew out' with in a few days so my advise would be to get your farrier to look at your horse.. Bear is not walking around normally again (Monday) but on Saturday was extremely sore and hardly walking.. (Even though a friend rode past his paddock and Bear the show off was cantering the fence line with her.. She didn't even know he was lame again.. So ring your farrier.. B) Hope it helps..
