    My vet cautioned me against long term tranqs like reserpine and fluphenazine, so I didn't get to use those for my horse while we were rehabbing from a bowed tendon. So I can't speak to those for...

    I agree with you alteringwego, nothing does get the leg as cold as standing them in a bucket of ice water. Not all horses tolerate standing with their leg in ice water - ask me how I know. Mine...

    I rehabbed a bowed tendon and a secondary injury that required icing last year, so I know where you are at right now. Not a happy place to be, but trust me with patience and time things will get...

    I haven't used the growth before, but I was feeding the Integrity Lite Senior no molasses. My horse ate it, but not with gusto and would leave some in the bottom of the bucket for his goat roomies. ...

    I agree with other posters, if he is weight bearing on the bad leg, then you don't need to wrap the good leg. If he isn't really standing on the bad leg 90 percent of the time, then I would wrap the...

    I use ace daily to keep my rehab horse from re injuring himself as he gets separation anxiety when the other horse(s) leave the barn.

    Hi Linda! There are a couple of things you could try... if banamine helps him you could try previcox which is cheap and effective. Pentosan works well, Susie uses that for her older pony to keep...

    My horse has been on stall rest since last October and I have been hand walking the whole time. My horse is spooky and energetic, and of course I can't have him jumping around right now, because he...
  13. Goats and horses... anyone keep them together?

    How do you work feeding everyone? Have you had any dominance issues, either with the goats running the show, or the horse being aggressive towards the goats?

    The owners of my barn decided to buy...

    My horse usually spikes a fever after getting his vacs. The first time it happened, it freaked me out but my vet said that it isn't unusual for some horses. She recommended Bute or Banamine paste,...

    Thank you for being there for your friend, as well as the horse. More so for her, I think it would be a comfort knowing that someone was there with the horse when I couldn't be. Makes a really sad...

    I was doing what so many others were doing, getting natural vitamin e capsules from rite aid (they go on sale- buy one get one free) and putting those in his goodie bags. Worked for awhile, until it...

    I was told 20-30 minutes by my vet,but that was for rehabbing a bowed tendon. I iced a lot, and what I found was you have to wet the leg to get it any kind of cold before your ice melts. If you...

    Here is what I have found with ace: with tablets you have to give more of them and there is a much longer onset time for pills to be effective. I usually give the tablets at least an hour to take...
