My new to me 5yo appendix mare had a horrible colic in April and during her in-patient stay she developed a “thrombosed” juglular vein (aka thrombophlebitis). The vet treated her for that with local steroid injections, IV DMSO, and banamine at the equine hospital (she was already on antibiotics, probiotics, and a whole slew of other medications for her colic). It’s been 6 weeks and it still becomes very swollen if let out to graze for any length of time over 30-45 minutes.
Does anyone have experience with this or other treatment options? I’m at my wits end, this girl was supposed to be my next big performance horse! The vet has told me to just “watch and wait” but I’m not very good about that.
