    I'm glad you took him in to the vet school. Sometimes you need the wisdom of a group of vets, as well as the supportive care that you find in the horse hospital. Were they concerned about tick borne...

    Allow yourself a lot of time to grieve. It takes a long time to come to terms with their deaths. Keep functioning as well as you can.

    I lost a very beloved horse 7 years ago. He had been...

    I would do the coffin joint injections, either with steroid or IRAP. We have been down this road with our now 26 year old. IRAP worked well for him once, and was slightly helpful another time....

    My daughter works for Walkersville Veterinary Clinic, and does a good basic prepurchase exam with digital x-rays, as needed. Her clinic is about 30 minutes from Gettysburg, in Walkersville,Maryland....

    I would take the horse to a vet school for the second opinion. If they feel the CT or MRI is needed, they can do it. Make sure you make the arrangements and tell the vet school vet that you want...

    I have thought about it but didn't because the boots are expensive.

    I would wonder about tick borne disease. We have had ehrlichiosis/anaplasma. It presented with high fevers and lethargy. Some tick borne disease only respond to a few antibiotics such as...

    Does your farrier think there are any signs of a low grade laminitis? If there is any stretching of the white line, excessive toe growth, or flattening of the soles, I would be concerned about that....

    I have always found Marion DuPont Scott/Morven Park to be cheap, as well as high quality. Admittedly, I am cost conscious and always ask about prices because my horses are not insured. I have never...

    I would also suggest you work with the horse so he does not panic if he needs an injection. There are good protocols for desensitizing a horse to needle sticks.

    Can you replace the barbed wire fences with electric fencing and put up a run in shed now? Then, after the fencing and shed are done, see if you can foster a horse or two for a rescue. You also could...

    The Charles Owen J3 comes in very large sizes. It is one of the few helmets that fits me well.

    What about a few private lessons with Glenda Player at Playland Farm? After she knows Glenda, and feels comfortable, she could do semi private or group lessons.

    I'm glad you are getting the MRI. He sounds like our now 26 year old, who presented with heel pain at age 18. In retrospect, I think he had heel pain for years but kept working and looking sound...

    Can you reply with an educational type tone? If someone was critical of his pastern angle or shoulder angle, you could post a photo of him with superimposed lines that demonstrate how to measure the...

    If money is not part of the equation, I would send the horse to Florida. We did that with a couple of ours and were amazed at the progress. There are competitions every weekend near Ocala, and lots...

    Animal doc, people are probably no more accurate than owners when it comes to their children. One of my favorites is the subluxed radial head/nursemaid's elbow. Parents are sure their toddler has a...

    OP, can you work part time with your migraines? I used to work with a number of women who had terrible migraines. If they worked part time, they kept the migraines under control and almost never...

    If she is 3/5 lame, I am skeptical that shoeing can make her 100% sound. It may help, but won't cure. Our big grey horse did well with equipak and short toes. He also got some benefit from regional...

    The rule changes will push even more people away from the recognized events and hopefully towards the unrecognized events(rather than completely away from eventing).

    I look at my daughters and...

    Horse gal, it is interesting that the AVMA states a valid client/patient relationship cannot be established by phone or online. I wonder if all state vet practice acts are consistent with that AVMA...

    Humans are regularly diagnosed by phone and by Skype so I think it is not necessarily unsafe to diagnose animals by phone. For example, a few years ago, I had a cough and cold, including a green...

    There were plenty of uphill, downhill, and turns. The footing was great the day we were there but there had not been any rain in the previous days.

    Yes, we are all taught to read the labels on meds. CDC has put out many, many pages of instructions on safe administration of vaccines. Still, when the same error happens repeatedly, I think the...

    The MRI might help you with management. If it is a navicular bursitis, he might benefit from injections into the navicular bursa. If it is a tendon issue near the navicular bone, he might not benefit...
