Hi

Teddy is doing very well and is off his pain meds. He is still in his stall 24/7 at the vets request. The farrier came yesterday and did his first trim after his diagnoses on the 2022/11/02. My farrier spoke to my vet before the trim and he wanted to take some heel off but the vet didn't want him to do this. From all I have read taking the heel off is something that needs to be done.
My farrier is coming back in two weeks for another trim, he did say that my vet wants to repeat the x-rays in two weeks at the next trim.

Will we see a difference in two weeks? And should I request that my farrier treat Teddy the way he thinks regarding the heels?

I know i need a couple more hoof photos but t isn't easy getting good photos on my own.
