I need help and I know this has been discussed before, but years ago. My loving 350 lb mini dislocated her femur and we are looking at a femoral osteotomy. We are so nervous but the vets say she has a good chance post surgery. I would really like to speak to any owners who have done this for their minis!

I haven't slept in a week :(

I have no helpful knowledge to impart, but I am so sorry to hear about your mini's plight.If the vets are optimistic, that's a good sign. Vets usually err on the side of caution, not optimism. I would also venture a guess that a smaller horse has a better chance at recovery.Good luck to you! I will pray for a swift, positive resolution.

Has your mare had surgery yet? I have no experience with this, but I have my fingers crossed for a positive outcome for your girl.
