I have a 2 year old 1/2 arab dutch cross gelding. He has been out in a large pasture since he was weaned. This April I noticed his right hock had swelling and fluid. I took him in for x-rays, and found he had OCD in the right hock and both stifles. I had the surgery done on the joints, and brought him in the barn for re-hab, stall rest then, walking only. We have another 30 days of walking before he can go to normal work. 4 months total.
His job is to be a show horse. I want to start his training in the fall. There is still some fluid in his hock. I have Total Joint Care supplement, and He gets Adequan shots regularly.
My question is, even after the surgery, will feeding OCD Pellets help him go on to be a performance horse? The right hock joint picture showed lesions, and flaking, and the joint was flat and irregular. Will this product be beneficial?
