  1. Another Stifle Question. Estrogen and Side Effects?

    So my vet is coming out next week so we can try estrogen on my Sr. gelding's "sticky" stifle (delayed patella release).

    He does warm up out of it, and exercise helps, but the whole situation is...

    FWIW, I live in California where paddock/pasture boarding generally means a small dry lot. I've never had a BO object to boarders improving the footing at their own expense. A lot of people add...

    The cow mastitis cream works fast, is super easy to use, and is cheap!

    No experience, but I'm sorry you're going through this. My guy is continuing to have stifle issues, but is too old for the surgery (mid 20s). It's too early to say for sure and I don't want to jinx...

    Just out of curiosity, is general anesthesia required because they need to be on their side? My vet showed up at the barn this spring with some new x-ray device that is cordless. It looks like a...

    The Prascend is a little pricey, but not out of control. I've spent more on supplements that may or may not do anything :) I just re-filled my order on Valley Vet and it's $114 for a two-month...

    My gelding has been on 1 tablet of Prascend for close to 3 years. It controls his ACTH levels (I re-test every fall), but did nothing for his hair coat. I started him on chaste berry powder this...

    In California at least, it's pretty standard for barns to offer an owner-provided and pre-bagged "lunch." I'm not sure I've ever even looked at a barn that didn't offer this.

    So most barns...

    I've boarded in Elverta in the past but am currently boarding out towards Wilton. Which is quite a distance from where I live and work. But I wanted the horses in larger paddocks.

    Roughly 45 minutes from Sacramento.

    $550 for two horses, each in a 75' x 75' paddock with shade shelter (and most have trees). Irrigated in summer. Includes hay as needed twice a day, cleaning,...

    There are other medications available. They aren't used as often because the pergolide is more effective, but to the best of my knowledge they are available. A google search should bring them up...

    The last kind I got from the vet was molasses flavored and he hates it. Thinking back, when he had laminitis it seems like he ate the orange-flavored bute without too much trouble.

    I'm using it on top of the Prascend, since that controls his ACTH levels but wasn't helping with the shedding at all. He shed out at least one full month (and maybe more) earlier this year with the...

    As someone else mentioned, some horses get sores in that location from the way they lie down and then get back up. I think upside down bell boots are used for prevention.

    I don't know... You wouldn't know how many berries to feed and maybe there's something in the processing that renders it safer or more effective?

    I feed a "heaping" teaspoon, which is probably closer to two teaspoons.

    I'm going to start with a half dose and build-up. Bute doesn't seem to bother his stomach, so I'm hoping it won't be an issue.

    I'm not sure the previcox is working as well as it should, and Bute...

    ^ Exactly. My gelding's first symptom was laminitis. So I wasn't going to mess around when the vet told me to put him on Prascend.

    My gelding is fine with Tri-Amino, and LOVES the chaste tree...

    I board my Cushing's horse and it's worked out OK, but again, I believe it's because he's not IR on top of the Cushing's. The barns I have been at since the diagnosis (I just moved due to his other...

    As an update to my December post, I did add the chaste berry on top of the Prascend, and my gelding shed out much faster this year. Last year we had to do a partial clip at the end of Feb, and this...

    And I feel like a crazy person sometimes because my gelding gets 3 supplements per day (loose salt, chaste tree berry, and MSM). And I'm about to add a 4th (Devil's Claw Plus) as an experiment...

    As far as the SmartPituitary goes, I would either test her for Cushing's and pay for the Prascend if needed, or if for some reason that's not an option, dump it and feed plain chaste tree berry...

    Maybe. If it were cheap, or as others have noted, free.

    My gelding's Cushing's has not been terrible to manage. Once we got the diagnosis and he started the Prascend, he's been relatively...

    I've got an older mare that's extremely picky about who rides her :) She's an ex-trail string horse. I'm a middle-aged, somewhat fearful, new rider. She behaves perfectly for me, but I suspect...

    You need x-rays and you need to test for Cushing's (as well as insulin resistance)! If Cushing's is causing the laminitis, he needs to be on pergolide. If that's the cause, he's VERY unlikely to...
