Horse Veterinary Questions? Ask an Equine Vet.
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry but at this point, with all of the swelling, it will be hard to know if the shoulder is dislocated or the swelling is just from the trauma of the fall and subsequent hemorhage causing this swelling. I am hoping that your vet has Flambey on strong antinflammatory medications and pain relievers that will help decrease this swelling. You will have to get a mobile vet to take another xray but this may require the larger machine at UC Davis to know for sure. If the shoulder has been luxated or disclocated, it will require surgery to resolve this because it has been too long.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
