We're two weeks out from Dino's stifle injection, and I have to say I think it may have done the trick! He's felt incredibly sound since I hopped on for the first time last Wednesday. While the 2nd Level work is still not within his capabilities right now, he just feels like he's lost strength vs. being uneven and crooked and completely unable to engage his right hind leg, or bend, or connect. Interestingly, his shoulder has even improved drastically since we injected the stifle! After our ride this past Monday, there were barely any visible or palpable knots, and the fasciculations had completely stopped. Now I'm wondering if an ouchy stifle was the root cause of it all! The shoulder will still spasm, especially if it's cold out, but it's much less dramatic than before, and it seems that Dino has regained his full range of motion there again.
