    Thank you, joiedevie. I was thinking lymphangitis as well, especially given the way his hind leg looks now. Honestly, I was very dissapointed in the vet that came out to look at the horse yesterday,...
  2. vets stumped - sheath swelling, fever, normal appetite

    Hi guys, I am writing this about a horse that is boarded with me. He is a 24 year old gelding, and in the four years that he has been at my barn, has always been healthy. He is up to date on all of...

    This. If I were to test every horse in my barn, they would probably all have positive test results. It would not, however, mean that they all have EPM, only that they had been exposed to it.

    ^ This. :yes:

    Boarders who bring in their own grain = inconvenience and more time that has to be set aside to feed. Not to mention the space needed to store the feed. The one boarder that I had...

    Thank you everyone for your help! I think my plan right now is to try the estrone, and keep conditioning her. If that doesn't work, I will ask my vet about blistering when he is out to do coggins in...

    Right now she is being turned out for about 16 hours/ day. I could probably increase that to almost 24 if I did some juggling (I am the BM). I agree, the more turnout the better!

    That is interesting about the blistering. Quick question for you, I know that it is usually recommended to inject both joints (i.e. both hocks, both stifles, etc.), is that not the case with...

    Trying to figure out what to do for my horse... Her stifles have been giving out, even when she is walking in her stall, and she has a hard time making the transition from trot to walk. She has...

    I'm sorry about your horse, I hope she pulls through. EPM is a horrible disease; I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. :no:

    I started one of the original Oroquin treads, not knowing, of course, what a train wreck it would turn into. When the alternatives are 6-9 months of the sulfa drugs or 1-2 months of Marquis, of...

    Still waiting on blood test results. I sent them in on Wednesday, so I am hoping to hear back tomorrow.

    Still no fever. She has not had any NSAID recently - I am pretty careful not to give them...

    Yes, she does have a history of ulcers. I would have thought ulcers if not for the increase in thirst and urination. I have BPR, but she won't eat, so it is nearly impossible to get them in her...
  17. Jingles needed - loss of appetite, increased urination

    Want to preface this by saying that I have been in contact with my vet and am currently waiting for blood test results.

    For the past 4 or 5 days, my horse has not been interested in her grain -...

    Any NSAID can cause ulcers in horses, especially if used long term. Previcox may be easier on the stomach than, say, bute or banamine, but the risk for ulcers is still there.

    I guess that every horse would respond differently to depo, but I have had good results. My mare would start to act colicky when she was in heat - stretching out like she had to pee. Depo made her...

    I much prefer depo to regumate. Doesn't need to be given every day, plus it is an IM shot so you don't need to worry about it getting absorbed through your skin.
