    Your biggest challenge is the hay. He needs to be restricted and that can't happen if he is out with 2 others eating as much as he can devour. He would be a candidate for a slow feeder hay net. These...

    If the cough free and msm keep him comfortable, go with it. In addition to his couch, I would also consciously monitor his respiratory rate and effort.

    The real key to any of this is to be...

    This is a side effect our clinic asks owners to watch for and typically means the dosage is too high for your horse. I'd talk to your vet about cutting the dose in half and see if his appetite...

    I had great luck with my hard keeper TB on TC low starch. She truly blossomed. I unfortunately had to switch due to a genetic choke causing deformity, but I was extremely happy with her condition on...

    I have a yearling mini/pony. He is 28" tall and should not grow a whole lot more. He is UTD on everything and has had 30 days of training. He also does all kinds of fun trick and is a lot of fun. I...
  6. SC pony yearling needing a home in a different climate

    Jackson is a yearling small pony colt needing to move from coastal SC to another climate. He has a horrible sand gnat allergy, and I refuse to make him live here and be so miserable. He stands about...

    I'll preface by saying I love TC senior. I work for a vet clinic and that is by far our most recommended product, and I've watched many a starvation case turn the corner and blossom on that feed.

    As others have already said, it depends on the horse. My first TB was a delicate little flower requiring special everything. She only wanted to be outside during certain times of day and certain...

    This is very interesting... I have a friend whose TB was in glue-ons for over 2 years, but the farrier would put glue on the shoe, and then stick to the sole. Everytime those shoes were changed, hoof...

    I have had plenty of my own experience with melanomas. There is no herbal magic elixir that will help. I'd strongly recommend initiating a liquid diet (soaked senior and soaked alfalfa cubes) to...

    Well I'd love to have them go now, but the vet can't do it in the field if we can't palp them, and the clinics won't go searching intra-abdominally at his age, especially given his tiny stature.

    Thanks for the replies. He is tiny, but has already grown a substantial amount since I brought him home and started feeding him to grow appropriately. He does not look like a mini, he's much more...
  13. When do I start to worry that he's a cryptorchid?

    I have a best guess 1 year old pony rescue that I picked up last summer. He was found last July wandering in a local community and spent 30 days in animal control's hands, then I brought him home....

    Hitting the artery with banamine causes seizures, and usually if there is a fatality it is by collateral damage (cranial trauma while seizing, etc.)

    I've watched it happen and while terrifying,...

    I think you are absolutely on the right track and have gotten great advice. I'd go ahead though and create a lesson policy, hang it in the barn and send every student home with a copy, preferably to...

    I also had a horrendous experience with J. Parlier. I paid for a box stall and my mare showed up on a 3 horse slant, crammed in the front, no hay, dehydrated, and miserable.

    I do highly recommend...

    There may be a reason baby needs to be in a confined area also. Could be some minor limb issues where confinement is most appropriate. I would just ask BO if on certain nights, can mom and baby go in...

    If you suspect allergy, why not give an antihistamine a go and see if that helps? If so, then I'd invest in allergy testing.

    If he were mine, I'd have the vet do a skin scraping, start him on an...

    I would start with a vet exam and I'd request a blood draw for Lyme Disease. That's one of the most common complaints from that condition...sudden and un-instigated aggression.

    If his physical is...

    There are a lot of approaches to help her get over this issue, but the fact of the matter is that she is truly terrified. She's not just being a brat, but is shaking and horribly scared of what...

    I have not owned a mare with these issues... mine just becomes a fruit loop when she comes in. However, I do work for a large animal practice, and we have seen a handful of these. 2 in particular did...

    He needs electrolytes because those are also lost in sweat. Electrolytes are not just to encourage water consumption, but because they are essential to the exercises process.
