I know that most of you don't keep them as pet's, but I'm a weirdo so I do. He is lame in what seems to be his right front foot. He is really bad when he first starts walking but improves after he's been moving for a while. I don't see any injuries and I don't think his hoof is too long. Could it be arthritis? Is there anything I can give to help with pain? He must not be too miserable as he is still eating and drinking but I hate to see him hobbiling along. The vet said that bute would not do much for him and anything else would need to be given in such a large dose that it would be very costly. She did say I might try some glucosamine/chondriton(sp?) from the health food store. Any of you have any ideas ( other than freezer camp) for me?
