    Laura - I subsequently found out that my excellent insurance covers Bicillin-LA at 100% under my medical benefits. I inject myself.

    I will lose that insurance in a few months and will be on...

    Bluey - I would sooner give myself feedstore antibiotics than I would my animals. And I guess that is one thing that I am a bit concerned about.

    My Lyme meds are Doxy, Zith and Bicillin-LA (PenG...

    The thing is - I highly doubt the mare got any of my horses alfalfa pellets.
    He is the only horse at the barn that gets them - the others are on the tan colored pellets. All fed separately.
    I...

    Question: Curious about something. Before the mare was seen by the vet - I inspected what was coming out of her nose and dripping on the ground. Some of...

    Well I never never never want to inject Banamine IM.

    When the mare choked and was given Banamine IM I realized I needed to be prepared - have other options in the event (knock wood) of choke.

    Thanks. I guess I never injected Banamine because I don't think I ever injected 10cc of anything IM. That seems like an awful lot of fluid to inject.

    I infuse myself with 1g/10cc...

    Meds to have on hand for choke

    A mare at the barn choked recently. It did not resolve on its own. Vet out. Tubed and left antibiotics against possible pneumonia.

    I have read some posts here. Seems like folks like to use...

    Thanks.
    I googled the name of the breeder.
    Sad story. Apparently she died in 2009 and her family was placing her beloved horses.

    Poor mare. Waiting for update.

    Not that it matters now, but would be nice to be able to read her papers.

    Can anyone do a screen shot, rotate and post it here?

    Wonder how old she is.

    Yes has been happening to me. Will try FF's advice.

    Not the same thing, but my computer security Trendmicro has been warning me since yesterday that this site is not safe. Weird. A few times signing on - like now - the warning did not appear.

    I may have fallen off the planet, but IIRC humans are not being cloned and issued SSN's. Thinking of cloning humans gives me the creeps.

    Researching I found this:

    Thanks. I am thinking either no Perg for now - or try again to see dose he can tolerate. As PB said either .25 or .50 mg. Are those doses too low to be helpful?

    I started him slowly in...

    Thanks BR. He is 26.

    I am leaning towards not putting him back on Perg.

    I am trying to remember what I have read about founder risks.

    Cushings vs IR. The risk is higher for IR than PPID?...

    Tks. After four months of giving myself PenicillinG injections (bactericidal) I realize I cannot go that route.

    I am preparing for my next doctor visit - to try a different treatment plan -...
  20. MIC MBC in Antibiotics (Bacteriostatic vs Bactericidal) Can anyone explain?

    I am having difficulty understanding this.
    For example with Doxycycline and Zithromax.
    Both are said to be bacteriostatic but can be bactericidal at higher doses.
    hence MIC and MBC values? ...

    Ducks eat horse manure?

    I have noticed something strange going on in my horse's dry lot/paddock past days.

    Chaffhaye alfalfa is listed at about a 50% moisture content.
    Any idea how much the alfalfa would weigh without that much moisture?

    K - well that is one of the concerns with shoes and pads.

    You can also be in a "melluva hess" if your horse does not like the shoeing/pad package. Some don't. IIRC the pour-in stuff can be...
