    I'm not saying you shouldn't use a low-cost spay/neuter clinic. I'm just trying to explain the cost difference. It would be like having an elective surgery in Mexico vs in the US. You'll probably be...

    The difference is that at a private practice you are going to have someone monitoring your pet throughout the procedure. This most likely includes blood pressure, heart rate and rhythm (ECG),...

    Didn't know he actually put his hands on the vet. That goes beyond just being an arrogant jerk.

    Maybe I missed it, but did you ever get a full workup? I'd at least get some lab work done, maybe an abdominal ultrasound +/- x-rays, and ask the vets what they think the most common cause for colic...

    Have you had any imaging done besides x-rays? How do you know it isn't a soft tissue issue?

    She is holding the reins, in addition to holding the baby. Still a dumb thing to do.

    I'd try lunging her with a bridle on and see if you get a similar response. Ideally with her head in the same position as when she is ridden. If you think the airway is probably the problem, I'd see...

    I agree- try Bravecto. Best thing, IMO, if you are having flea problems.

    And make sure you are treating the environment.

    TroTrotPumpkin: as others have said, you know your kitty best. If you think she has a poor quality of life, there is nothing wrong with choosing euthanasia. JoZ brings up a good point about SQ...

    I think, like anything, you need to evaluate the individual and go from there. There are some fantastic PCs with excellent instruction, and terrible PCs with scary riders. Many pony clubbers take...

    Yes, I'd be very concerned if my horse wasn't bearing weight on their heel. And I would not think the hocks were the primary cause.

    I work in a vet clinic. Personally, I've had good success with Seresto collars and think they are worth the cost for the time you get out of them, if your animal keeps collars on. Frequent swimming...

    Yes. I do wonder if his horses are able to scramble out of situations just because they are always so perfectly balanced. They can come up with a 5th leg not because they have to use it all the time,...

    I don't know if this is the cause, but I had a horse years ago that had similar symptoms (lameness and it was biting too) and I'm pretty sure the vet diagnosed it as rickety-horse syndrome, so I'm...

    I'm curious, too. I first went in 2003 and there was no problem finding a hotel, traffic was minimal, etc. I've gone most years since then, and it seems like there are more people every year.

    My old Rambo has lasted 11 years. It's been retired because the waterproofing started to go last year. It did lose a strap when I forgot to tighten it after switching horses, but I can't fault the...

    I'd try soaking with the shoe on.

    And I see no reason not to do the dental, unless you think the horse is going to have difficulty standing under sedation.

    Apparently he has a DVM. And I'm sure he has a good number of granola-type clientele (no offense granolas, most of you are lovely people, but a few take "natural" to the extreme!)

    I also agree with using a carrier. If only to contain any kitty pee that may occur on the way. That's not something the next renter of that car wants to be smelling!

    Edited now that I saw the repeat blood work had a normal protein. Still, you would expect PCV and TP to be on the higher side on blood work if she were dehydrated, so I'm not sure I agree with that....
