Re: Laminitis xrays today, long term pain mgmt needed.

So sorry to hear that your mare is sore :((

Interestingly, a new local vet ive been "interviewing" (read: grilling) is progressive-thinking in terms of PPID & EMS (compared to most vets ive interviewed) and he also recommended low-dose previcox (57mg/day) for my mare to quiet any sub-clin soreness that inevitably occur from insulin spikes. He explained that such a low dose has very little side effects but is still therapeutic to throttle any hoof pain that would cause a pain/stress wind-up cycle. So im interested in the group's advice on your situation

Best of luck,
