  1. Hello Dr. Tucker, What
    about erratic lateral/medial Cannon bone fluid retention, seemingly in “pockets” of stuck connective (Fascial) tissue, but no heat or pain? What is your take on this please?

    1. I am not sure. Fluid retention can occur with damage to the underlying tissue with collection in pockets that come and go. This fluid is usually edema and disappears with a pressure wrap or with exercise.

      Some horse get edema after laying down on the limb creating pressure and filling that goes away after rising and moving. Other than this, I’m not sure.
