NeoVet Shock Wave Therapy Used to Accelerate Healing in 3 YO Bay Thoroughbred Stallion

This horse was in training as a two-year-old in southern California. After working 3/8 of a mile for the second time he returned moderately shin sore bilaterally.  At the same time of the work, a blunt trauma injury to the right hind was found and diagnosed as a sequestrum of MTlll. Surgery to remove the sequestrum was performed and he was turned out for 3-4 months.

He returned to the track and was working well until his second 1/2-mile work. After the work, he returned to the barn lame on the left fore. Radiographs showed a saucer fracture of dorso distal MClll (slightly lateral). The horse was sent to a rehab facility in my practice after a three-week period of “let down” at the track.
