    Just wanted to update, in case anyone else has the same question. I found with my horse that the IM dosage is double the IV dosage. He's not a heavyweight per se but typically drugs don't work so...

    Sedivet IM - dosage?

    Sedivet is only labelled for IV use so there is no literature from the manufacturer on IM dose - but I know some folks do use it IM. I'm wondering what your experience is with the IM dosage as...

    I'd try bute & robaxin for 5-7 days (no riding) and see what that does before calling a a vet. Maybe he just tweaked something slipping around the paddock or bucking & playing.

    I had problems with the Regumate dosing syringe. It seemed like there was often air in the lines and it was hard to get an accurate dose. Then all the rubber gummed up & died after 2 months. For...

    I think it's just like fly spray-ers. Some just hang in there longer than others. I also find that if you work the syringe in & out (but not all the way out, just move it up & down a few times)...

    Supplements like Equishure or SmartDigest Ultra might help prevent hind gut ulcers, but my understanding is that only sucralfate will TREAT them.

    Supplements with collagen - any proof?

    I think I know the answer to this, but is there any scientific basis to feed collagen? It is being marketed as a supplement to aid in recovery of tendons & ligaments. I remember when it was...

    Thanks everyone. Sounds like I'm better off taking that extra minute to crank it back down, as I've been doing.

    Appsolute - No, my truck is also my daily driver so I definitely unhitch! I mean cranking down the trailer hitch on a bumper pull, so the front is lower and it sits more level. Then when I need to...
  16. Trailer question - to crank it down when parked or not?

    If I'm using my bumper-pull trailer frequently (twice/week), is it necessary to crank the hitch part down in between uses? Why do we do that, anyway??

    I'm sorry I don't know the answer to your question, but I've also got a rehab horse blowing through ace (and the healing ribs to show for it), so please let us know what ends up working for you.

    If you have any mud at all, I would avoid fleece-lined boots. They get disgusting in mud and trap all that wet ick next to the horse's skin.

    I use ASB (all sport boots), Woof boots, or Nunn Finer...

    My guess is that the horse is stiff through his body and if that is the case, all the transitions in the world won't fix him. Any exercise to promote bending and suppleness - and you may have to...

    Take a picture of their stalls in the morning with all the wasted hay and show it to her. Maybe she just isn't comprehending the situation.
