    Penicillin works very well for rain rot. I'm surprised it isn't used (or suggested) more often for severe cases and/or those that aren't responding to topical treatments.

    I've not seen a single study that shows cimetidine effective for reducing melanomas in horses, unfortunately. There was one done several years ago (maybe 15?) at a large, high end Andalusian breeding...

    You need to have your IUD removed ASAP. They can cause the type of severe pain you're experiencing. I'm surprised that has not been done yet. It only takes a minute or less for a Dr or NP to yank. ...

    Coastal Bermuda hay is high on the list of things that can cause colic. I can't imagine feeding it to a horse with frequent colic episodes. Changing hays to "whatever grass hay I can find" is also a...

    Fast enough to win it by 4-5 lengths. No need to set a record. He beat the best colts of 2008, including the previously unbeaten Big Brown, in the toughest of the TC races. If he was my horse I...

    The same could be said for Secretariat. And I seriously doubt his white stockings were the reason he became the most famous horse in the world. As I pointed out in my last post, Secretariat had...

    How soon we forget. The 38-1 Tiznow son, Da'Tara, won the Belmont wire to wire in 2008. He was/is a real looker too. Wonder whatever happened to him?

    From a member of TB racing's peanut gallery,...

    Is anyone available to spray him with a GOOD quality fly spray before the heaviest time of being bug activity? You might also consider fly boots or Summer Whinnys.

    Flax is WAY cheaper than chia and does the same thing. Ask your feed store if they carry it. Most do not have it on display. If not, ask if they can order it for you. Many of us have been feeding...

    The problem with this approach is that unlike people, horses produce acid 24/7, not just at "meal times".

    If you're not dealing with active ulcers, the best preventive is feeding alfalfa and/or...

    Had a brown tabby given to me by a friend named, Hobie - you know, the catamaran company. Vets always thought the name quite clever though I can't take credit.

    First of all, I'd like to say he's adorable based on the headshot posted.

    I'm of the opinion he's not getting the amount of food the OP believes he is. No darn way. I never take BO/BMs at their...

    It's really too late for any supplement to improve fading. These things need to be fed before the new coat grows in. Once the hair has formed it's done.

    Do you mean Omega Horseshine?

    While the above does contain copper & zinc, the amounts of each (listed in ppm's = mg/kg) are quite small if fed at the recommended levels of 0.5 - 1 cup/day) and not...

    Now, my family and I are city people although I do own and board horses and have for years. Even so, this little scenerio shocked me.

    One day many years ago my then 10 year old son came with me...

    What ever happened to him? He used to post on COTH occasionally. The guy is quite entertaining.

    I too would like to know where that information came from. If it were important to give GG or UG on an empty stomach I'm confident Merial would include that on the administration instructions. There...

    Sorry, while there have been some improvements in treatment in the past 20 years, it was well known, even back in '89, that allowing a horse become obese through over feeding & under exercising puts...

    If he were mine I'd try Omolene 100. It's a low protein (10%) sweet feed most horses love. Start off slowly since he's not been eating much. Wouldn't hurt to do a week or two of Gastrocard either...

    Don't know much about the patent situation but don't expect the price of a generic to be that much less. I had been using Prilosec OTC (also manufactured by Merial) for years. When the generics came...

    Both front legs snapping at the same time is not a freak accident nor remotely comparable to what happened to Barbaro. I agree with the OP. This breeding has a higher than average potential for...
