    Dislocated hip/Locked Stifle

    Here we are one year later.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQQpNx9OP1c Blake, I am sorry to hear about your gelding. Hang in there. OUr recovery has taken a long time...and Daz has her stifle still locked and nerve damage. I will send you a PM.

    Dislocated hip/Locked Stifle

    Just wanted to give an update. Daz has continued to make slow progress but her spirit and will are strong. Though she is mainly on stall rest, we have recently added some supervised turnout time, which she loves.

    Dislocated hip/Locked Stifle

    Just wanted to give everyone an update on Daz. I haven't posted in a while because this fall has been a roller coaster of ups and downs. Earlier this month she was back in the hospital for more diagnostics...she ended up getting a steroid injection in her hip area and started on gabapentin...

    Dislocated hip/Locked Stifle

    For our situation it was worth it. The day of her diagnosis, our girl wasn't ready to go. Her eyes were full of life and her spirit full of fight. We made the decision to try and as long as she was trying, so would we. This has definitely been a very emotional experience with ups and downs but I...

    Dislocated hip/Locked Stifle

    We are up to 25 minutes of hand grazing twice a day and then I rush home at lunch to bring her out for 10 min . After her evening walk I give her the option to meander for a bit. Starting just today I am letting her stay out of her stall in her paddock while I am doing chores...so tonight she...

    Dislocated hip/Locked Stifle

    Daz has been hanging in there and has strung together a couple of good days. This Am was her last dose of Surpass. Here she is this evening.

    Dislocated hip/Locked Stifle

    She is holding her own. She has some stifle soreness. It is still locked. My vet was here yesterday and we are trying some Surpass (a topical NSAID) to see if that will offer some help and are talking to her surgeon to see about possibly further manipulating the joint. Her hip area seems to be...

    Wear on back hooves

    Dazzle is on Equioxx. It has been really good for her...though we are in the process of seeing if she can tolerate being off it.

    Dislocated hip/Locked Stifle

    It is definitely an ordeal for all of us. This week we are reducing her meds to once a day and hoping next week to remove them all together. This is day 3 of meds only in the evening. So far she is handling it well.

    Here's a peek at Miss Daz this week. She is making some progress and we are thankful for every good day.

    Adequan/Pentosan dosage for miniatures

    Wow, you have been through a lot with Thistle. I love her name I don't have any help with the meds but just wanted to say it looks like you've done a great job with her. The video was great. She looks happy running and playing...it gives me hope for my mare. All the best, Angie

    Dislocated hip/Locked Stifle

    I try to check in here every few days. She continues to make slow progress. She is bolder coming out of the barn sometimes wanting to come out before me. We have also made a little progress rasping her front feet. Her good hind I trimmed while she was laying down this time...I wanted to clean...

    Dislocated hip/Locked Stifle

    Minimor is right. In Daz's case they did try to pop it in and keep her in a sling, but she fought the sling and it popped back out. It is very rare they can pop them in and get it to stay. If they could that would be the best option...Her surgery is commonly done in dogs and cats and mini horses...

    Dislocated hip/Locked Stifle

    Just thought I'd touch base for anyone following this....Daz has been quite stable on this dose of pain meds and after days of really no progress, we are starting to see tiny glimmers of hope. Here is a little video of her out for a little grazing today.
