I have an 11-year-old, 16.1hh, ID x TB. He has recently been diagnosed with arthritis in the coffin joints of both front feet. He also suffers from sidebone and previously has had collateral ligament damage in his feet. He has been treated with an injection of steroid and hyluronate into the joint, but this wasn’t effective. The vet has suggested a neurectomy, but I’ve heard that this has many negative effects and may not even work. How effective is this procedure? Are there any other options?
