    While they will survive the trip, you'd certainly be increasing their risk of complication by traveling in the heat of the day. I'd try really hard to convince DH that the daytime will just be far...

    As a practice manager at a large animal clinic, I can assure it is ALWAYS preferred by the vet to get a heads up. The vet is happy to discuss home treatment options with you over the phone, but it's...

    As suggested, have the vet back out for radiographs. It does sound like a nasty abscess, but if it is still unresolved and unhealed, it very likely could be a foreign body.

    I keep both on hand at all times. If you don't use bute frequently, your best bet is to buy 10 or 20 tabs from your vet to keep on hand. Those will run you about $.20 per tab. If you use bute more...

    Rather than file a complaint, I would simply express concern regarding your horse's recovery. The vets do not get to see that, and in my experience as a tech, ponies in particular will seem...

    Well of course with a girthy, angry mare, I think ulcers or hormonal imbalance. (I promise I am not one of those "every horse has ulcers" people) The sudden displeasure with girthing with no evidence...

    I think you handled the situation as politely and easily as possible. The horse is fine, they got their money back, and you can try again for a more appropriate home.

    Everyone handles these...

    I just use water right out of the hose. As others said, don't let it sit in this heat. ESPECIALLY if you're already adding hot water. I soak my mare's feed, feed the other 6 horses, then its ready...

    I'd definitely have him tested for Cushings. The bloodwork is not that expensive, and for a pony his size, medication would be very inexpensive. We have seen A LOT of these senior ponies/horses this...

    Certainly not the worst fracture I've seen. I do not like the angle he's at in that lateral view though. He's slightly negative. I'd want prescription shoeing on him ASAP. Other than that, it...

    Vinegar is very effective, provided you clean at least once a week. I'd scrub with vinegar/water. Rinse well. Let sit in direct sunlight until completely dry (UV rays will kill nearly all...
