I’ve made a decision…

I got an appointment with my vet tomorrow morning to ultrasound Farley’s LF digital flexor. the original plan was to keep tabs on the tendon for the first year anyways, and I haven’t had one done since June 2008 (she originally injuried it December 2007). I palapated it last night very aggressively and she may be reacting, but it isn’t consistant. I have a $50 credit at the vet so it wouldn’t be that big of a deal to take her in a get peace of mind.
Of course this happens right smack in the middle of breeding season so Dr. S* the vet I usually have do the ultrasounds is busy. I’ll be working with one of his other vets, Dr. R*. Dr. R* was present at Farley’s last 2 ultrasound by complete coincidence, so feel OK about it. The first time was right after she was hired and she was still in school. Dr. R* was visiting the clinic in preperation for starting there. The second time, I just happened to bring Farley in on Dr. R* first day of work!
I’ll let you know how it goes. The day after ride was was 95% sure it was the splint. After last night, now I’m not sure.
