Re: Reoccurring Hoof Abscess Help
Dr Kellon, Laviania and Michele,
Thanks very much for the replies. I'll work on hoof photos tomorrow. My farrier is due out in 2 weeks and I'll see about moving that appointment up. He's commented that we can't get Mill to grow any heel and she's been like that forever.
I don't know that she will eat a pound of flax divided into 2 feedings. Would split peas be appropriate and how much would I need to feed?
Does she need regular Phyto-Quench or the pellet formula with Devil's Claw?
I'll get some Numotizine ordered. Is it harmful to use if there isn't an abscess brewing and Mill is just tender-footed??
I'm extremely grateful to Dr. Kellon, this group and the members for helping me take the best care of Mill that I can! It's hard to believe that almost 12 years have passed since her PPID diagnosis.
