For those of you who guessed...Carmen had another abscess. Our vet came out the very next day and opened the abscess to allow it to drain. Back to packing her hoof every day! She was walking much better the following day and the rest of the week. For those of you wondering - why call the vet? Our reason is simple. Yes, it was just an abscess - this time... Carmen's feet have been under a lot of reconstruction recently, which is why we wanted to be 100% sure we weren't dealing with anything worse than an abscess. Our goal is to get her better and in doing so we turn to the professionals to ensure the best care for her.
Carmen is back to turnout in our indoor arena with Georgie! Please stay tuned for updates
