Just curious... did you end up taking on this gelding and his case?

As a farrier, I've seen mixed results from joint infection recoveries, and most only by word of the client. It'd be interesting to know how this resolved.
Yes, I did take him in. We have him on an all natural medication and there is little improvement, but this is only his second week being on it

Like nutraceuticals? I don't have any first hand experience using any, but have had it expressed to me that there are some good products out there. I always caution clients to the side of buyer beware since they inhabit a regulatory grey area / are not regulated by FDA for potency or efficacy.

If you don't mind my asking; have you gotten an official diagnosis from a vet you trust? And, if so, have they provided a prognosis as well at this point?

No, we haven’t taken him to the vet, before I got him he was just taken not long ago. All I know is he has a joint infection, more like remnants of it, and club foot
