    I think there is a YouTube video by Mike Corcoran, a saddle fitter/maker who says sometimes you get dry spots, but it doesn't mean your saddle doesn't fit.

    To save a lot of $$, try this source for a natural Vit E supplement - http://www.scbt.com/datasheet-363242-ultracruz-equine-vitamin-e.html

    Thanks to fellow COTHer JB for that find. Makes me sad I...

    So much better than that awful exhibit in Brazil I think, where they tied up that poor stray dog said it was "art" to watch it starve to death. Anyone know if they ever repeated that wretched...

    Super sad to hear this!

    He is the one that first got me excited about Totilas when he posted a video of him doing the PSG. It was "cool" to have someone across the pond and more "in the know"...

    Has anyone seen Akeem Foldager go yet under Charlotte Jorst? If anything, these plays to get on a team is good for the economy of horse sales of international caliber horses. Personally, I just...

    Again, there are risks involved with scoping as it is an invasive procedure and if your horse has all the typical ulcer symptoms that only go away with a week's worth of omeprazole, I just don't feel...

    FWIW, all of the vets that I have been around actually prescribe compounded omeprazole, usually Precision Pharmacy, or just tell you to get the human kind from the drug store. They only dispense...

    Knew of someone in a similar situation. Unfortunately, the older horse colicked and was down by the fence line and the neighbor's dogs chewed off its ear. IMO, it is important to teach your dogs...

    I am fairly certain that the inconsistent amounts were for the Abler paste - and it was that sometimes you got more than what the paste syringe indicated, not that you were getting cheated...

    Sounds like Patrick Kittel is also utilizing water treadmill training with Scandic and it seems to have really boosted his scores. Wonder if the U.S. team will invest in this type of conditioning as...

    I have one that always seems to have a rebound effect right after it wears off. This includes Dorm and Xylazine. I believe it can be an indication of the liver having a bit of an issue with it.

    I believe type 1 is the more common draft breed diagnosis, but warmbloods and what I consider more draft-like breeds such as Friesiens, Gelderlanders, and Icelandics are type 2. I think the...

    Thanks for those articles tabula. They are both well-referenced, but admit that the lack of salt can be difficult to see symptom-wise and yes, that they do not self-regulate.

    Interesting that the...

    As far as horses knowing how much salt they need is not true. One of the vet schools did a study where they deprived of certain minerals and salt then presented a "wheel" of a variety of those...

    Try to find a TCVM vet in your area. I have seen Dr. Xie's herbal formulas work extremely well for digestive abnormalities including reoccurring ulcers. I really cannot say why they work better...

    I have also witnessed good control of ulcers using the TCVM herbs including Stomach Happy. If you can find a TCVM vet who can prescribe it for you, it is much better, IMO, than other ulcer...

    I have also heard of people using the full dose of Gastroguard and re scoping at a month to find that they still had ulcers. In fact, one vet had a client who it took six months of Gastroguard to...

    Thanks to JB, I switched all of mine over to the Vitamin E from Santa Cruz Animal Health. Even the pickiest gelding I have eats it right up, it is apple flavored, and I am saving a fortune!

    With horses we are looking for them to be sound enough to ride and compete. With dogs, it's kind of okay if they are just a bit "off", perhaps just needing some NSAIDS. It does seem people who...

    I have heard through the grapevine that many dogs who had received stem cell later were diagnosed with rapidly progressing aggressive cancers. Could be coincidence, but might give it a few more...

    I also worry that when the wild fires hit, with Santa Ana winds hampering any air support, we could really be in trouble particularly in the canyons dependent on wells.

    Yes, it sounds more like EPSM. Glad you are getting the biopsy, but it won't hurt to increase the oil now as trailer rides are hard for their muscles as well. I think you will need to be up to four...

    How much oil are you up to? Most people are reluctant to give enough oil as it seems like too much! If you can soak the alfalfa pellets beforehand for fifteen to twenty minutes with water, they...
