Thanks--I'll talk to my vet about it!
Why is that? Ivermectin is on our worming rotation so if I shouldn't be using it for an EPM horse, do you have links to any studies or vets who have said not to use it?
Hey OP--how's your guy doing??
I'm so excited that I have my old horse back! We started back to work last week (after about 4 weeks on the meds) and he has been *awesome*! Not a single spook and...
That's a really great question!
My horse has it in his left hind, and the only other horse in the barn with it is also left hind. Hummmmm.....
Awh balls, I'm sorry!
Mine bug me quite a bit too but I'm still in the "ignore it" phase.
And go to Crossfit. :lol:
Holy hell, that sucks!
Though I must have missed something. So, after the surgery, your hip was still bothering you so you went in to get it checked again?
OH NO! What?? What happened?
I asked my surgeon if he had a brother. :lol:
Yup. And shivers. Double-whammy. :(
Rockin! Though even a couple tablespoons would be fine; Ted starts being picky when powder gets to be excessive.
You guys are awesome--thanks!!
Simkie--you are amazing!! :winkgrin:
Ok, looking at this now. How big is the scoop? I want to feed ~10,000IUs; is that then a lot of powder?
What do you guys recommend?
I've just been buying softgels off Amazon but wanted to see what else is a good deal for the cost.
So sorry for your loss but glad you were able to figure out your guy's problem and get him back to feeling good!!
Ted started being "weird" around late May/early June and EPM was nowhere on the...
I have an OTTB with shivers. Got him when he was 5 and his flexion on his back left was a little off in the PPE but he wasn't officially diagnosed until a year or so later (IIRC).
Thanks! You too!
Not sure--I need to call the vet and ask if I should give him total time off or still hack him.
I'm also curious how long it takes to start seeing the effects from the meds.
Oh and my horse had no other EPM symptoms either....
Wow, so I came on the COTH tonight to start this *exact* same thread.
My horse has just been "weird" lately. I can't give much more detail other than he's been different and really spooky, and...
Hah, I take 900mg a night for massive sleep issues (and still have a lot of pain!).
I had my thyroid checked a couple years ago and all was fine.
Yah, mine still bother me. A lot. (am icing as we speak!). I picked up Crossfit a few months ago hoping that I can strengthen up the muscles around my hips. I have a lot of piriformus (sp?)...
Haven't been on the COTH in months so sorry to have not chimed in!
Lump me into the double hip surgery/wish I hadn't done it crew. :sigh:
Whoa, really? I'm on that for sleep problems. If it...
She was amazing!! I'd say I went into it as something fun but I'm totally stunned at some of the things that she came up with.
She nailed that I had lost a "yellow" dog. That she was 14 years old...
I'm definitely going to ask Tonk what she thinks of Noodle. ??
