My 9 year old oldenburg gelding has never been 100% sound on his left hind. He seems to drag the toe slightly.. I did a very expensive workup on him including xrays of his hocks and blocks of the entire leg. The only time he went 100% sound was when both the hock and stifle were blocked together, but not one or the other alone. THe xrays showed very mild changes. The vet recommended a very pricey bone scan, as they were at a loss. He doesn have a very small scar on that stifle. What dose do you think I start him on of the ocd? How long at the dose? Thanks!
Also, I did ocd surgery (well not me 7 1/2 years ago on my now 9 year old Thoroughbred gelding, he had an ocd the size of a half dollar in his left stifle, he has never taken a lame step since.. but do you think that I should put him on the pellets as a caution? Thanks again!
