I have a 8 yr old quarter horse that vet says is insulin resistant but does not consider him to have cushings. He has had the atch test done and it was 5.9, and glucose level of 107. He had x rays done which showed very little rotation. We’ve had a mess with getting a good farrier in our area and thought I had a good one but turns out that he was taking out way to much sole, and now my gelding has very thins soles. He has that going on as well. He has been very lame for the last 14 days on his front, some days more on the left and now more on the right. The first 7days he was soaked in ice water morning and night but 2x a day and feet packed with dmso and magic cushion. That seemed to reduce some of the pain. Vet advised that I gradually reduce bute, ice and packing hooves. Now on day 14 his hooves are feeling warm again he’s more lame on one hooves then the other. I’ve never delt with anything like this before. Has anyone else had issues like this what should I expect for his life? We have taken him off grain, and put him on purina enrich plus. What does anyone else feed? He still seems hungry after eating. He’s also has choice 1st cutting hay. (In process of getting hay tested). This is my first time posting on here any help or guidance would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
