    Generally for that type of activity (cleaning wounds) you're not going to get into trouble for "playing vet." The protected activities are "diagnose, prescribe and treat" but it usually depends on...

    Bone scans are usually done as "front half," "back half," or "whole body" so they will get the withers.....have to do both sides as you often need to compare the sides to tell what is normal for that...

    Splinting the area involved would mean a full limb splint (you have to immobilize the joint above and below the potential fracture). Can't use a lower limb splint because that would end right below...

    When I was pregnant with my second (and final for sure b/c I was 35 and had hyperemesis both times), DH and I discussed that if I needed a C-section for some reason, I would have my tubes tied, but...

    But veterinary practices are not radiology centers like in human medicine. In the radiology center, you don't ever see a radiologist. The nurses/technicians take the films that the Dr. has ordered,...

    I've used a lot of gabapentin in veterinary patients and often don't really see any noticeable side effects in clinical patients.

    The sedation that you can see tends to be dose-dependent. In...

    I always at least sedate them heavily prior to euthanasia as IME it makes for a smoother process. There are those that say that the sedation will lower their heart rate (true) which will slow the...

    You really should follow the recommendation of the surgeon (and not your regular vet) - stall rest will often be different based on the degree of other damage seen arthroscopically. So one horse with...

    Missed the part about how she is "free"...

    Since she's not in work and free, if she is sound, someone that wants her is probably not going to do a PPE, but will just take her and try to put her...

    She looks soundish in the trot video - but it's pretty bad too. Just trotting her in the roundpen both directions would show more.

    They might balk at hospitalizing an unvaccinated dog, but probably not at euthanizing one. I work ER and we don't turn away unvaccinated patients (and we don't carry vaccines either).

    If you don't have any recent radiographs of the feet it might be worth getting some - would tell you what the sole thickness is and might give you a clue as to why the horse is sore.
