CASE 005

came up lame after work out. Nothing palpable, grade 3/5 lame with an obvious "stabbing" motion to the gait. No change with low 4 point, intraarticular sticle.  Improved to grade 2 with lower hock joints. Sound with high suspensory (twice). Ultrasound of high suspensory was nonremarkable according to referring vet. Xeroradiographs of the hocks and proximal cannon bone showed mild to moderate degenerative changes.  Horse seems a little too lame to be just sore hocks.
