    We use a bedding called Cedarest in the outdoor sections of their stalls. It is not recommended for a closed stall as the cedar can cause irritation and I do know of some horses that have allergic...

    That is terrific news! Shockwave does seem to be a pretty great therapeutic device and I wish it would come down in price, and be less loud ;), so that more people could try it.

    Crazy that they don't permit omeprazole as the health of the horse should always be the priority. Not sure if it tests, but you might see if there is a list of infractions in your organization's...

    My vet likes rheaform over metronidazole. Clears it up with just one dose and very inexpensive, though they can go off feed.

    Wow, sounds like they are charging a premium price for shockwave in your area. I think mine was $350 per session and I think that even included sedation. My vet will also do multiple areas for the...

    They say the vibration direction, up and down, of the Equivibe is better for injury healing than the Theraplate, side to side, which is why more hospitals and rehabilitation places use the former. ...

    Poor guy, but if they are doing shockwave, they might as well hit that area as well. More chance of a better prognosis if you get rid of the inflammation in the back half as well as the front half I...

    Treat for ulcers first because the pain of the ulcers can give the horse anxiety so you are just stuck in a vicious cycle. Then I would do magnesium, thiamine, inositol, and if you have a vet who...
