"My Arabian mare who is now 30 years old developed DSLD nearly four years ago but doesn't seem to be in any pain or discomfort and I no longer ride her. I know a lot of people with Peruvians usually euthanize them as soon as it is diagnosed…"

"The way she has been trimmed has been short toe with quite a bit of heel, however, I do know a lot of farriers are stumped by Peruvians (I've been thankful that my farrier specializes in lame/foundered horses and gaited horses.  And if he…"

"How do you prevent her from making sharp turns out in the pasture?  Reffy's problem is she acts like a little Lipizzaner out in the pasture and thinks she can do "airs above the ground."  I hand walk her for about a half…"

"Wow!  I'm sorry to hear about this!  It almost sounds like my story with my mare as well.   For my mare who has just been diagnoised with DSLD and a bone chip, I hand walk her 1-2 times a day for 5 minutes.  I do keep her…"

"Really?  This is wonderful news, to be honest, especially because today was a rough day (I'm just getting frustrated with the bone chip not rupturing and I'm worried my mare is in pain, although she's as perky and bright eyed and…"

Lynn Kinsky replied to Amanda Swenson's discussion My mare was recently diagnosed with DSLD
"She might have SLD (suspensory ligament desmitis), but there is no reason to think her suspensories are spontaneously degenerating (which happens in DSLD).  She's got a bone chip floating around, for goodness sakes.   My advice would…"

Amanda Swenson replied to Amanda Swenson's discussion My mare was recently diagnosed with DSLD
"I want to say she either gets Bermuda or Timothy.  It's difficult because of where we live there isn't much of an option.  Also, we used to have one pasture that was strictly rye grass, but we only would allow the horses to be on…"

"I do feel there is a dietary link to DSLD.   Safe choice does have molasses I believe?  Also, what type of hay does she eat? "

My mare was recently diagnosed with DSLD

I'm new here and actually joined on account of my mare being diagnosed with DSLD.   About four weeks ago I noticed my mare was favoring her back left foot and that her fetlock was swollen, so I called my vet out to have x-rays as well as an ultrasound.  Turns out she broke a chip off of a bone in her back left foot and as a result she has developed moderate DSLD.  After crying (I swear, I thought I was going to lose it because this horse is basically my baby and simply a trail horse.  I…See More
