Slick: Navicular disease


Slick moved stiffly in his shoulders and walked more on his heels than landing normally and comfortably. He has never been able to drink normal amount of water either, 5-7 gallons/day rather than the normal 10-15 gallons/day.

Current diagnosis/symptom

Navicular disease


Within a week, Slick was 75-80% improved. This was without shoeing or any other meds. After that, he continues to improve. He is drinking 10-12 gallons water a day and has a much better attitude. He now chases other gelding around and moves out at a trot and lope more often than before. He can also lift his hind legs with much more ease for trimming than before.

Conclusion or client comments

Significant improvement.
