My mare that has been suffering with laminitis is due to be re-shod next week. Problem is that she cant weight bear on her damaged foot so after discussion with vet have decided to give her a nerve block in that foot. Any-one have any idea how much roughly this will cost?? My insurance reached it's limit months ago, sadly, and her ongoing treatment has been costing a fortune. She has a foal at foot and developed laminitis the morning she foaled, her foot is severely rotated and there's no hope of her ever recovering, it's merely a case of keeping her comfortable for as long as she's happy to keep going. I don't grudge her a penny, she's been an absolute star through it all. We never thought for a minute that she'd still be here 5 months on, but she is still happy in herself, loving being a mum and moving ok. She's on metacam at £50 a bottle which lasts her a week, and her shoes are fitted every 4-5 weeks so the cost is never ending. Got a feeling this will probably be her last set of shoes, but you never know, she's a real fighter.
