I was so worried about this, but we couldn't have hoped for a better
outcome. We did a needle biopsy earlier, and all they got
was synovial fluid, so there was concern that a) the tendon was
involved, and b) that there wouldn't be enough skin to close well.
Now we wait until Thursday when we'll take the pressure bandage off
and see how the stitches are holding up. The pressure bandage is necessary to
keep the swelling down so the stitches don't pull out.
Finding a good horse vet isn't easy. My friend Kim uses Dr. Meiners for her
horses. I was caring for them one time when he came out to look at her older mare,
and I really like his calm, easy going demeanor. I can't say enough good
about this man.... and the horses like him!
