    Treat for ulcers first because the pain of the ulcers can give the horse anxiety so you are just stuck in a vicious cycle. Then I would do magnesium, thiamine, inositol, and if you have a vet who...

    How are his poops? I would drop the rheaform completely if his runny poops have normalized. The one mare that went the longest without eating wound up with what we assume were ulcers since she...

    I loved Guenter's freestyle as well. The music was reminiscent of what I loved so much of Anky's and Imke's freestyles. The cheesy renditions of current rock music is fun, but really fails to...

    Yes, beautiful, tactful riding by Edward. Geez those horse's legs! Does Zonik translate into tarantula? Especially from the aerial camera angle, he really reminded me of a floaty spider! Another...

    My guy has had some periods of time that his shivers have gotten as bad as you describe. Normally, in winter, and when I have tried to decrease the amount of fat/oil of his EPSM diet. I know...

    It could still be his EPSM. All the ones I've worked with can have these absolute explosive moments. Of course, it could be ulcers as well, but I think muscle spasms can make broncos as well.

    I watched a bit of it and can see what everyone is worried about in the "are today's hunters too fat" thread! Some really pretty rounds though, and not all were super rotund, just a few ;)

    I have used it on three of mine and it cleared up their runny poop in just one dose. They did go off their feed a bit, so I would be careful of using it over an extended period of time. My vet...

    The mare at the end was my favorite. Absolutely lovely! Thanks for posting as that was fun to watch. These modern horses seriously look like they are trotting on the moon!

    Reluctance to drink water can be a symptom of ulcers. In light of the recent move, I think this is highly probable and you might try ranitidine or omeprazole and see if she starts drinking better.

    I remember when Power Packs were a popular remedy for ulcer symptoms, but the way she describes how it works on the large intestine makes it seem viable for healing hind gut ulcers which omeprazole...
  12. Pentosan an antihistamine, fenbendazole to help heal intestinal ulcers?

    The equineshivers.com website has some interesting tidbits of information, but hard to discern where Dr. Bishop is getting this information.

    For instance, Pentosan as an antihistamine more...

    The equineshivers.com site is certainly thought provoking. Will have my vets read it to get their opinion. Has lots to ponder, such as horses and fibromyalgia, but mostly shivers as an autoimmune...

    I had one who got very sick from the vaccine. It was years ago, but I think it took three months to resolve the snotty nose issue. To this day, her immune system is out of whack, but can't say...

    Honestly, it sounds like you might be dealing with multiple issues and if your budget is at all limited, I would skip scoping for ulcers. From your description, it sounds like that could be the...

    I have had my shivers guy for 13 years now. Although certain circumstances do make him worse, I would not say he does it more overall now than 10 years ago. Again, he doesn't tremble nor shake, or...

    I've been thinking the pharm companies should come up with a way to give your horse a mild case of the flu. This way they feel too lousy to act up, eat more slowly, and just REST!!

    My shivers guy doesn't tremble or shake, just kind of looks a bit like a dog lifting its leg to pee. His does seem to be affected by diet as he also has EPSM. When he is not getting dietary fat nor...

    Thanks for the responses. I will look into US rider, but I generally only haul maybe two or three times per year and no more than 30 minutes away. Have only really heard of it through COTH. Might...

    Not sure if it just got lost in the shuffle, as Smartpak did respond with concern after I submitted my review. There are no other reviews either for this particular product, so maybe they didn't...

    Wow, that is a great idea especially for days away at shows! Will have to try that, but still like to wear gloves for the occasional splash back from overzealous squirting into the bucket.

    Will AAA fix a flat trailer tire?

    If the trailer is hooked up to my truck, will AAA come change out a flat tire for me at my home? Just thought I'd ask here first, but would like to take advantage of their service if possible.

    I had a similar incident happen to me. The maker of the product sent me tons of their others products, including items to help with the healing so I was happy with that although it took a few months...

    Thanks for all the recommendations! I had asked my vets about the Regumate dosing syringe, but they said other clients complained about leakage, but perhaps newer ones are better? Would rather find...
