Re: Mya - waiting on trim - has abscesses - diet /pain please advise
1 - Bute (or any other NSAID) will slow down the mobilization of abscesses which often leads to the situation you have found yourself in. As it will not help with pain due to laminitis caused by IR and has this effect we recommend stopping it as soon as possible. You need to taper her off of it (see: https://ecir.groups.io/g/main/files/Pain%20Medication%20and%20Alternatives/How%20to%20Taper%20Off%20NSAIDs.pdf) and you can replace with Devils Claw or PhytoQuench with Devil's Claw (see https://ecir.groups.io/g/main/files/Pain%20Medication%20and%20Alternatives/Pain%20control,%20switching%20from%20Bute%20to%20Phyto-Quench.pdf)
2- Magnesium is dosed by weight as outlined in the emergency diet (
4 - Equinety is a waste of money. Dr. Kellon summed it up best here: https://ecir.groups.io/g/main/message/270686
5 -Unless Mya has lost a drastic amount of weight since the beginning of this month she's not a 3 but closer to a 4.5 -5 BCS in the pictures you posted. I would expect a 14.3 NSH to be closer to 950-975lbs than a 1000. Regardless of that, she does not appear overweight enough to be on Thryo-L so I would suggest weaning her off of that (1/2 tsp less per week) as her Thyroid level should straighten out once you get the IR under control.
