    Please stay far away from prescription diets. Hills, Royal Canin etc. are not good foods, they're just twice as expensive but you might as well go by Friskies at the grocery store.

    Personally I...

    Thanks Polydor.

    I was hoping that my friend/other boarder would be there. She works in medicine so I'm sure she knows how to give a shot. But she had to work late and couldn't make it.

    I've...

    Need some reassurance

    I just gave my horse his first Pentosan shot. Please tell me it gets easier. I'm so scared I did something wrong and I'm going to find him dead tomorrow, all for something he doesn't really need,...

    Thanks everyone. My horse has become fairly bad about needles but apparently he's much better when I'm not around. But seeing as how it's going to be me giving him the pentosan... We'll have to get...

    giving IM injections

    I am going to be trying Pentosan out for my horse. I have giving IM injections before but it's been a while.

    What is a good brand of needle/syringe to buy? I read not to skimp on these because...

    He's really nice. The canter will get better as he gets stronger. But you are way too tight in your arms. You need to have more give in your elbows so he doesn't just break at the 3rd and curl in...

    My cats are super fussy and get bored of the same thing. I try to switch it up as much as I can. Nature's Variety makes a 95% meat canned diet with a bunch of different flavors. My cats only like the...

    It doesn't need to be "kitten food". Just high quality, canned cat food. I'd just keep feeding Evo (the canned). "kitten food" is just for marketing.

    I don't know if I would call Royal Canin "exceptional" but I would say it is at least a step up from Science diet. I would suggest to go for the canned over the dry food. It doesn't take much digging...

    Lori B,

    One of my cats was diagnosed symptomatically (and I did blood work but no ultrasound IIRC) with IBD. I can't say for sure 100% that's what she had as I didn't have a biopsy done and I...

    My horse prefers a single joint. It's a very subtle difference but I've tried twice to get him a $$ KK ultra bit and both times at different points in his training, he just was too sensitive to it....

    Are you sure the dogs didn't get up there and dig under the covers to sleep in the bed? Maybe she was afraid to confront you about it?

    The anxiety might not be a bad guess. She is still a bit jumpy/nervous here with all the strange sounds she is not used to. So maybe it is just that and she'll get better with time. I have put down...

    Otherwise those are totally the cartoon rendition of my cats. LOL They go around together just like a lot of times. I'm the only one who can tell them apart.

    ***Grain free does not equal low carb***

    In fact, if anything it can mean higher carb. Depends on the food. Think about it. Dry food is like a meatloaf. You need some kind of binder. Usually this...

    The pace is an extra gait. It's not "instead" of the trot. So a horse that is a pacer can and often will also trot by default. Some will pace and prefer to pace and personally I would avoid those. I...
