    Yes, I am talking about the visit when my horse was crippled and referred to the hospital, NOT the bill for the IRAP injections. It's only $95 but to me it's the principle. If the IRAP wouldn't...

    Highly recommend Rejuvenaide. I had a filly that 2 vets basically tried to bully me into doing the stripping. Finally talked to a vet I really trusted and he told me to wait. He said people are so...

    Higher than I pay but not totally unreasonable, IMHO.

    $70 for trim and front shoes (same price if it's a reset or new shoes.)
    $100 for trim and 4 shoes (again same price if it's a rest or new shoes.)

    This is just for plain shoes - no pads, nothing...

    Yep, I would probably have reacted totally differently if there was one iota of sympathy shown by my vet. Never even called me to acknowledge the fact that my horse had to spend 14 days in the...
  6. Vet adding insult to injury (IMHO but maybe I am being irrational)

    So, as documented in my other thread, my horse got IRAP injections and ended up with a joint infection. Spent 14 days in the hospital and is still on doxy/bute and stall rest. Bill for hospital was...

    Oh my goodness, DocTracy, I'm so sorry for what you are going through.

    I did get a call from the IRAP manufacturer and they took some more information from me and gave me a case number. They...

    Wow, Larkspur. That sounds awful - hope your horse is doing okay. (I didn't understand half of what you wrote but it does sound bad.)

    On top of all this, I have been SUPER busy at work so I just...

    The roller coaster ride continues. On Wednesday, I was prepared for her to have surgery on Friday (the schedule was full on Thursday so they had to wait until Friday.) Then Thursday afternoon the...

    Brigid has to pay the USEF attorney fees. Who is footing the bill for this legal challenge? Every story written about Tori emphasizes that she comes from modest means.

    The hospital my horse is at used to me by "regular clinic" until I moved 35 miles away and found a more local vet for most things. I will say that I have thought that the hospital scrubs MUCH more...

    We built our initial fencing in 2008 and used creosote treated fence posts and fence boards. Was saddened when it was no longer available when we wanted to do some more fencing a couple years later....

    Well, I obviously am not going to get a call from my vet. My horse has now been at the hospital for 6 days. As of yesterday, my bill there was around $1,900. There has been no mention of when...

    My regular vet referred me to the equine hospital and it is definitely where my horse needs to be. That in and of itself is not the issue I have.

    And yes, I have been referred to the equine...

    How are you going to prove someone violated the spirit of the rule? Does using regumate on your mare violate the spirit of the rule? Sure makes one of my mares much more manageable and even-keeled....

    I understand that is a risk, although I think I read something like 1 in 10,000. Thing that bothers me the most is the 2 day wait when I called and said my horse was extremely lame and then the lack...

    Joint infection after irap

    So......what would you expect from your vet after paying almost $900 for irap (at the vet's suggestion) and your horse ending up with a joint infection. Called about lameness, got in to see vet 2...
  21. Diagnosing DJD based solely on flexions

    Is this a commonly accepted practice?

    That is, if a vet is doing an exam, horse trots sound but then is positive on flexion, is it common for the vet to declare that the horse has DJD without...
