Abstract:
A 4-year-old thoroughbred race horse was presented to Madras Race Club Equine Hospital with the history of back pain, poor riding performance, inconsistent shifting lameness only apparent under saddle. A radiographic imaging technique of the thoracolumbar vertebrae was performed to analyze this condition. The lateral view radiographic findings established the overriding spinous process (Kissing Spine) in the race horse. A therapeutic regimen combining analgesics, neurotonics and interspinous space injection with corticosteroid resulted in successful recovery.
