Well we’ll be finishing up the Marquis on Thursday and Traveler has a checkup with the vet tomorrow.So far I haven’t seen any signs of improvement, but have seen a slow (well, if you can call it that) decline. He has been on a nitric oxide supplement which is supposed to be an anti-inflammatory but we ran out of that about 3 days ago. Don’t know if it’s the nitric oxide or just coincidence or a combination of that and perhaps die off from the Marquis, or what, but he’s gotten slightly worse this past week. He’s not circling, and is fairly ‘steady’ on his feet (when not moving fast) but when he turns, he still pivots on both back legs, and he’s now started crossing over so much in the back when he walks he’s started knocking himself. I thought the Marquis was supposed to be started right away with no misses (if possible) but my vet said that I’d want to wait at least a week, so not sure what to think about that. The vet that’s coming out is the one who initially diagnosed him as having EPM, the other one was reluctant on going that route and suggested he had arthritis, needed chiro’d, or had LMND, or something else (in other words she had no clue and I had to talk her into drawing the blood). I’ll try to get some videos of Traveler tomorrow and do another update.
