My main-squeeze, my talented training partner (palomino curly mare) is undergoing diagnostic evaluations (serum, bloodwork, xrays and tomorrow i’ll trailer her to MIZZOU).
She is uncoordinated, and has a head tilt and vestibular eye weirdness in both eyes.
Local vet suspects a broken temporal bone caused by arthritis that is impacting nerve. Have not ruled out EPM. Herpes virus seems to be off-the-table as a cause (because she’s up on her vaccines and bloodwork seems to clear her for that).
Poor thing. She got banamine on day one, and yesterday, (day 2) bute. Today will be bute again and tomorrow she goes to MIZZOU. I was worried about trailering her an hour and a half, but after she worked so hard to evade me for her evening meds, i think by closing her in the front compartment of my stock trailer she won’t have too much room and will have four walls to lean upon. Stock trailer is 1/3-2/3rds.
