    As an update, I had about two months that were pretty rough. I did stuff like going to work and basics around the house but it would wipe me out and I would need a pain pill at bedtime to sleep. ...

    For a horse that has been foundered, you want the lowest NSC feed you can find. I would not feed anything other than low NSC hay like Timothy or teff and a vitamin/mineral supp unless you really...

    Very interesting that these rope reins may be legal for showing. For hands compromised by arthritis, these are actually a good option. I have tried them, and they work reasonably well. I think...

    I prefer buckles because they are much easier to use if you have arthritis in your hands, as I do. I also happen to like their look - but style is personal.

    In the dumb question department, would someone be kind enough to explain the CDI designation system i.e.

    CDI1* to CDI5*, CDI-Ws, CDIO2* to CDIO5*, CDI-U25, CDIO-U25, CDI-Y, CDIOY, CDI-J, CDIOJ,...

    According to my farrier, hoof growth slows in cold weather because the body puts protein stores toward keeping warm, rather than into the foot. Don't know if this is veterinary gospel or not.

    The soy thread is quite interesting. I took my mare off Triple Crown Lite because I strongly suspected it was the source of persistent hives. Soy is the second listed ingredient. The hives are...

    I just got this bad news OP diagnosis. -2.8 at the hip, -2.4 spine. Dr wants me on Fosamax, but this sounds like a really nasty medication with the femur fractures and ONJ. Would really love to...

    I fell on a ceramic floor a few days ago and landed on my back. Very painful. I had tenderness over some places on my spine. Dr. ordered X-rays, which show evidence of compression fracture at two...

    You might try out a french link Baucher bit -- it has upper cheeks and a fixed ring, and is more stable in the mouth. I had a paint mare that had the same issue you are describing with rubs on her...

    I sympathize. You could try a low NSC hay like teff, if you can get it. There are a number of supplements around that are supposed to help - Smartpak carries several. Neighlox was mentioned by my...

    Ulcer treatments

    I've read some of the gastrogard/ulcergard threads. I am quite confused. So gastrogard and ulcergard are the same product, with the same amount of omeprazole. They just have different dosing...
