    The most important thing is a limited ingredient diet. Over-the-counter foods can be tried, but prescription foods are ideal because the company goes to great lengths to make sure there is no residue...

    Reading about the second episode sounded to me like tying up. If you have a cell phone on you, maybe take a video for the vet next time? And have blood pulled to measure CK and AST.

    Protein levels depend on the work. 10% protein is usually fine for horses that aren't working.

    However, 10-14% protein feeds generally recommend feeding several pounds per day to meet dietary...

    The signs you described sound typical for sedation: ataxia, dropping the penis, sometimes knuckling over. I would not be particularly concerned about that personally, but I've seen enough "drunk"...

    Why is this acceptable just because they weren't competing or showing a sales horse? If she is unable to ride this horse without drugs, what happens if she beats out the more-talented kid on the...

    I'd just revaccinate with the new one in 2-3 weeks. Unless there is another horse you could potentially use it on, in which case I'd call the manufacturer.

    I don't think the meds were unreasonable, for reasons stated by others. It's not that uncommon for meds to be marked up 100%. This is true in small animal as well. Costco and Walmart and online...

    Just finished reading it, and was very impressed. Glad we have someone like her coming up in the ranks.

    The one downside of a wide oxer vs a table is that some horses interpret it as a bounce. Happened at the Creek Oxer at Rolex one year, and the horses ended up stuck in the fence.

    I don't think there is so much an unwillingness to change, but at this point I'm not sure we have a clear picture of what exactly needs to change to make it safer (short of just doing away with the...

    43% of the horse deaths were US horses (possibly more, there were a few that did not have nationality specified). Certainly we don't have 43% of the total world cross-country starts? (Only) 18% of...

    My issue with amending speed is:

    1) Is it just going to turn eventing into even more of a dressage contest? Which seems like it would be detrimental to overall cross country safety.
    2) You are...

    X-rays of the chest of an adult horse requires machines more powerful than the portable X-ray machines. So perhaps the clinic doesn't have a something strong enough. I don't think that is too unusual.

    Left front looks worse, but I do think perhaps he is foot sore.

    I'd like to see a video without a rider. Or if that isn't possible, on a long rein, with the rider doing as little as possible.

    To me, not eating/drinking and lethargy are pretty non-specific symptoms. The unsteadiness could be due to weakness (from dehydration and lack of calories). The response to banamine suggests it could...

    The thing is, I don't think you see a lot injecting "for the hell of it" in the US. The very good lameness vets that I have seen, even the ones that IMO are quick to go to injections, don't inject...

    I'm not sure I would assume the inability to flex to the stirrup to be a bit or hard mouth issue. Neither of my horses have "hard mouths," one ran XC in a french link and the other likes to get...

    I'm not sure that the therapy has fallen out of favor, but there aren't a whole lot of places to have it done. Personally, I think its a great modality and wish there were more around, but they are...

    I have only seen it used in concert with a "regular" lameness exam plus blocks (usually done at the same time, with the lameness locator evaluation looked at after the vet watches the horse move). I...

    As others have said, Legend, Adequan, injectable glucosamine, polyglycan, and Pentosan are all IV or IM, not into the joint. Their effectiveness is partially dependent on the horse, some horses...

    I am usually one to suggest ulcers, but I do not think that is the main problem here, although it may be contributing to some symptoms.

    I would honestly think about going to a very good lameness...
