Re: temp of feet Now Lady Update


How do I know if I am dealing w/ an abscess or laminitis flare up. Yesterday we turned Lady out and when she came in both her front feet were hot. Thought for sure we were dealing w/ laminitis. Today she stayed in and when I arrived this evening, the original foot was Hot and the other was back to being ice cold. Abscess=warm soaks. Laminitis=icing. Please help me determin which direction to go w/ her. Still waiting onthe vet to draw blood. Farrier is due out Thurs for regular appointment. Should I start doxy as a precaution of the Lyme returning??
Thank you for helping me sort this out.
