A Broken Heart

Just received word from my consult with Dr. Ruggles- because the hock injections in Candy were unsuccessful and he can't be managed on Previcox, surgical fusion of the joint is really the only option left. Having seen a couple surgeries on senior horses go wrong at my old job and my current financial situation, I will not be pursuing the surgery.

I'm not really sure if I will keep blogging. I'm going to try the Cosequin ASU and the BoT hock boots, but right now, the future looks pretty grim for Candy.

It's frustrating to be in vet school and watch two of your animals crash and burn before your eyes and be powerless to help it.
