AW (((hugs))) I am so sorry to read this! What a worry! And yes, I would get another opinion.

Maybe get a 2nd opinion on the matter sounds bad

There is a leg/hoof specialist I am going to see about getting her in with (the same vet that diagnosed my other mare with navicular syndrome). I trust his opinion.

Fingers crossed a miracle will happen over the weekend.

Hoping it clears up quickly and she's ok.

Unfortunately she is still lame :(

I have called a different vet who specializes in this stuff. Hopefully I can get some concrete answers and how to move forward after this visit.

I'm sorry to hear that, Phoenix :/ Lameness issues suck, especially those not easily diagnosed. Sounds maybe a bit like ringbone? I'd definitely consider a second opinion! Hope it's something easily fixable and she recovers quickly.

Hugs xx

So I finally have answers! She has indeed caused trauma to the Pastern bone, not the coffin bone, and it has become inflamed and irritated underneath the connective tissue. With steroids this spot should heal within the next 3-4 weeks. If it doesn’t we have a plan to get more aggressive. I was warned this is something we have to fix or else it has the potential for turning into ring bone. The spot on the coffin bone that showed up on the other vet’s x-rays looks to be something developmental and shouldn’t cause her any issues.

The vet is very optimistic that she should be sound within the next 3-4 weeks however. :)
