Falling on knees

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   August 18, 2011 07:17

Q: My horse fell onto his knees last night in the crossties. Although he appears ok I'm concerned. Should I be calling my Vet to look at him?

A:  Monitor for swelling and heat on the knees or any soundness issues.  If there is any pain or swelling or cuts at all I’d get him checked out. 
Sometimes the simplest of wounds or scrapes can lead to a more complicated situation.  (refer to Interesting Case # 4) .  Trust your judgement and monitor him closely for the next few days.
