They can do something called periosteal stripping, probably spelled wrong, but it stimulates the outside of the growth plates to help straighten the legs out.  Pretty simple procedure, but I wouldn't trust just any vet to do it, go to a good lameness/sports medicine vet.  A really good repro vet that sees and cares for lots of sick or injured babies would also probably be a good bet.



This worked extremely well with a problem filly I had.  Check on dam and foal nutritional balance as well.



Approximate cost? guess?



I wouldn't think any more than $250.  It has been a while since we had one but it is well worth the cost.  We had a very nice filly in training that should have had it done but didn't.  She could REALLY run, but she absolutely fell apart because of that crooked knee.  


Thanks so much.

I had this done a couple of years ago.  It was at a good horse vet and only $350.  Worked like a charm.
