Whether or not symptoms resolved, and how quickly would depend upon the particular toxin and its mode of action.
Botulinum toxin (and that was my first thought when I read this) binds to...
I have an alibi.
I was out working with my horse.
Oh, Dear Heart--the very idea that you take something as bloody bland as what is posted above and compare it to *Gamergate* is more than ample evidence that you are probably the most clueless entity...
Perhaps this is a decent reason to consult a DVM?
It's "affecting", and I doubt it's having much impact at all.
I'd be very surprised that a horse with dysphagia due to rabies survived more than 48-72 hours after becoming symptomatic.
I'd be even more surprised if it turned out that the other horses...
Either is acceptable.
It might be a stretch to go after the USEF, but I can see it happening. Maybe not for 100% liability, but partially.
Sort of "well, you admit you knew the billets on the saddle were worn but you...
Careful not to let the door hit you on the way out. It might disrupt your flounce.
So I'm a crappy businessperson. I admit it. I believe they've added some management instruction to the curriculum, but back when I was in school we had about 8 hours total practice management.
The drug in question is, as mentioned above, likely to be Excede but it isn't penicillin.
It's a long-acting formulation of ceftiofur, a cephalosporin.

In fact, when I think back on the times I got stiffed while in regular practice, the overwhelming majority were emergency calls that I took for...
I do think that the existing clients ought to have been given advance notice of this change.
There are limits to how many hours any one person can reasonably work, though.
Would you want your cardiac surgeon doing a bypass a half-hour after leaving a busy 12 hour emergency shift?
I'd be very surprised if PPID (Cushings) isn't at least part of the problem.
While I understand that being on call 24/7 is not a long-term sustainable lifestyle, I must say I'm surprised that there is nothing in place for some of you guys.
Some, if not many, state...
I occasionally use my EAP unit with a pair of sponge electrodes on my neck, and the intensity that i comfortable for me would send my equine patients through the roof.
The "Be Nice" halter predates Clinton Anderson by a number of years.
The late Tom Ivers used to advocate their use for rehabbing bowed tendons.
Electroacupuncture is commonly used in horses, as well.
If you decide to try it, be careful to raise the intensity...
Second this--grab a video, so that when a DVM is consulted, you don't have to merely describe it. Might even be worth sending to a veterinary neurologist for a consult.
It is the mechanism of action of the drug which makes it ulcerogenic, not the mode of administration.
Can't comment on the article, since it is restricted to wsj subsribers.
That's a relatively creative view of things.
