A few weeks ago I received a call from a client who reported his hunter was lame for a few days on a front leg. He said that there was swelling around the tendons at mid-canon level and that he had hosed and bandaged the leg and applied cooling agents to try to reduce the swelling.

Apparently despite his efforts, the level of lameness was increasing. He was very concerned and was convinced that the tendons were damaged. He wanted me to scan the tendons and diagnose how bad the damage was; propose a treatment and advise as to what would be the likely prognosis.
