Keep up letting us know of Kodi's progress.
When my Mia had a back issue I did not do the MRI. I was planning on following the conservative protocol anyway so did not see the need for it at that point.

And definitely did not want to change food in the midst of everything else!
He has tummy problems to start with, and is on low dose Tylosyn daily for that. With that, and controlling his diet (avoiding his known triggers) he does pretty well. But he does take Pepcid as needed anyway. We just want to be careful. (and yes, I've been very careful to give it to him with his meals!

And in this case, it wasn't even suggested, because treatment would be no different no matter whether they saw anything or not.

What a stressful situation! I hope Kodi is back to romping with his friends medicine-free really soon.

So sorry to hear about Kodi's injury. Still catching up on the board and just saw this. Will be sending good thoughts your way.

He is looking pretty good at this point, but we're not taking ANY chances... he's still on restricted exercise until the doc releases him. He can go back to class tonight as long as he only does walk/trot work. No running or jumping.
