CJE - 2018-05-15 9:50 AM Any success with horses that are showing signs of navicular changes and lameness with osphos?
My horse.  He has been completely sound on the left front 6 weeks after the injection and was sound on the right front until March.  He has a cyst and when we changed up the paddinig material on his shoeing we think it irritated the cyst.  The cyst has not made any changes which is good because it hasn't grown.  My horse wasn't even pasture sound until the injection.  He was a train wreck and after the injection he became comfortable with his entire body because he wasn't trying to carry his weight all in his rear end.  After the second injection the other day he is at least pasture sound on the right front again. 
Forgot to add since the first injection there haven't been any more changes to the navicular or coffin bone.  He has a spur to on the coffin bone.  So right now everything looks stable.

Just got back from the vet today....we had injected her bursa's and not the improvement I've seen in the past with them.....so I took her back for x-rays today and showed 2 cysts......vet had already suggested to the Osphous but I don't like doing two things at once.......I want to know what works.........and what we were up against......now to decide it I want to go through with this or broodmare.....

My question would be how, specifically, will the use of a biophosphonate affect a cyst?  How are the soft tissues affected by that cyst?

My vet thinks there the results will be positive........I am a doubter........and I know he said no to nerving........the results of that could be catastrophic was the impression I got.....
