Skunk is a paint gelding that was presented to us with a lameness issue. When we went in to exam Skunk, he had a slight ocular discharge coming out of his right eye. Upon further inspection, Skunk had a sand spur lodged in his third eyelid. Skunk was given a carbocaine injection above the eye so he could not feel Dr. Kellam pulling out the sand spur.
Here's a video of Dr. Kellam taking out the sand spur!
Zoey is a 7 year old chestnut Quarter Horse mare. She was presented to us because she was very stiff at the canter with both hind limbs. The best course of action was to inject her hocks and fetlocks. We injected her with H.A., a steroid, and an antibiotic.
Surgical scrub before injections.
Sarah is a 12 year old chestnut mare. She came in from the pasture with a swollen left hind leg. We treated her with cryocuff cold treatment twice a day, surpass in the morning and poultice at night while being wrapped with standing wraps. Her leg has since gone down and looks back to normal.
