I have a 3yr old warmblood/TB filly that became a bit off in the hind end. Because I am paranoid and work at a vet clinic I brought her in and had her xrayed. A cyst in the medial aspect of her right stifle showed up. The vet reccommended a 2 week course of Bute, Polyglycan shots once a week, and if she is still off in two months he will inject her. He said to keep riding her, just don't do many circles. This horse was to be my future eventer/jumper, so my stomach is in knots over this!
I am looking for success stories of horses competing with stifle cysts, and what do people feel about Polyglycan? Does it work? How often do you give it?
