    SPLs have issues of their own (cost, risk of the SPL footplate slipping and producing a second ulcer, loss of patency, etc) so while they are wonderful in many ways, they are not always jumped to if...

    I had no idea Thoroughbred stallions had an approval process in Germany. Interesting.

    Yep, NCSU and UF have some of the best equine ophthalmology departments in the country.

    I'd get comfortable cantering downhill, then cantering poles, then cantering cross-rails, then stadium fences, then XC fences. Or trot fences once you feel comfortable cantering downhill.

    If the heart has an arrhythmia (such as in A-fib), or a leaky valve (which can sometimes produce turbulent blood flow, heard as a murmur), the heart is not as efficient in moving blood forward with...

    A friend ties an old lead rope to something and hangs it into the water. Seems to work.

    Was the vet negligent? Did they purposely perform the "wrong" treatment? Without more information it's hard to judge, but vets are human and make mistakes. Unless they purposefully misled you or...

    I know that is a common belief that dog mouths aren't all that dirty, perhaps because dog's lick their wounds, but dogs and cats have loads of bacteria in their mouths, including Pasteurella. I'd...

    A HW positive is rare where I worked, but a tick-borne positive (usually Ehrlichia) is usually a daily occurrence. I don't think most owners realize that a lot of clinics use heartworm tests that...

    Exactly. It is actually in the code of ethics that there be a valid VCPR before dispensing any prescription meds (such as heartworm prevention). Which generally implies a once-yearly exam. Yearly HW...

    Ah, so a life of misery is better than the risk of dying on course? That is what you are arguing. You REALLY think it is better for a horse to go to a "barbaric" dressage trainer than an upper level...

    The suggestions of this post highlight that you are a h/j and have never ridden around a XC course or heard the arguments against certain types of course design. 4" rails that fall down require you...

    DC, you bring up some good points with this... I had not seen the fence. I see no reason for any fence to have a false groundline (to me, that is just tricking the horse, not testing riding ability)....

    You can remove them (they slide through "keepers" on the collar), so you could open and close it. Although I could see the plastic wearing out if you did it a lot. Unfortunately, they are supposed to...

    I think most people just decide to take the risk since anaphylaxis is very, very rare. I honestly have never heard of an owner keeping epi on hand for this, and while it is a very smart idea, I can...

    Benedryl is not sufficient to treat anaphylaxis. Other vaccine reactions, yes, but not anaphylaxis.

    Considering how easy it is to block the foot, and how much you have already invested in her feet, why not block them to make sure?

    OP, please don't second-guess yourself. It's very easy for some people to armchair quarterback. Had you euthanized the first day, I'm sure there would have been many up in arms that you didn't give...

    As others have said, I go behind the shoulder.

    That being said, I have had my (dressage) saddle slip onto the wither, and it did make it significantly easier to sit! I thought it was my excellent...

    I'm just gonna say it: that's a really stupid reason to "boot" someone off your horse's case. Good lord.

    I think those that are making a big deal about this are probably those who have done the...

    And how do you know this? Are you asking them why the horses are there? Because a lot of employees will say they don't know because they are trying to be polite since they legally are not supposed to...

    This may surprise you, but most vets hit the carotid at some point in their career. It doesn't mean they are incompetent or even inexperienced.

    And if the rehab guy was working under a vet, it may...

    CpK (or CK) is really not "high" until it gets into the 1,000s. And usually its much higher than even that if there is serious damage to the muscles. Even an IM injection will increase CK.

    I was told by a pharmacist that omeprazole should be given 30-60 minutes before sucralfate.

    Sucralfate can bind with a lot of medications and reduce absorption, so in general its recommended to...

    Was the microphone in the AC vent of the house or the barn?

    Listening in on me in my house would probably be a deal-breaker. I don't think I'd make a huge deal if it was in the barn.
