    The lack of people checking on him at night bothers me. If they told you he was being monitored, he should have been monitored. You may need to talk with the Board of Veterinary Medicine.

    If show hunters is completely out of your budget, think about eventing or pony club. In our pony club, I remember passing the show jacket from child to child as they got ready for formal inspections...

    I had a strangles titer run on my boy about a month ago because I wasn't sure if he needed the vaccine. I think it was sent to Idexx Labs.

    I can't see the pictures. What is the weight of the trailer? What do the horses weigh? What about the people, tack, water and other items in the Tahoe and trailer? What is the Tahoe rated to pull?...

    It sounds like something went very wrong and the vet didn't know how to deal with it. I wish you could tell the story to some very experienced surgeon who could figure out what actually happened.

    Would she be happier if you used a pharmacy such as Smartpak that will fax the prescription to her so she can quickly sign it and have her office fax it back? Check your state veterinary laws. They...

    I don't know anything about trachs in horses, but in kids they scare me. A friend's 2 year old grandson died of trach complications. He was napping in the pediatric ICU of our big Children's Hospital...

    A good article on pediatric tracheostomies. I can't imagine the statistics would be better for horses.

    Can you talk with an experienced surgeon about what happened? Children don't do well with a permanent tracheostomy so I don't think a horse would do well. Kids with trachs have lots of secretions...

    I think what our rehabber did was to put out a few hot dogs per day until the foxes got used to her routine and appeared out of nowhere when she came with the hot dogs. Then she put 0.12ml of the 1%...

    I am not convinced a necropsy would be helpful. He had the 2 surgeries, and it sounds like the surgeons got a good look at the surgical site. He was unlucky, or maybe had a connective tissue disorder...

    Is your vet a board certified surgeon? If not, I would be headed to a referral clinic. Sometimes you need the experience and equipment of a surgeon and a referral clinic.
