    I agree- try Bravecto. Best thing, IMO, if you are having flea problems.

    And make sure you are treating the environment.

    TroTrotPumpkin: as others have said, you know your kitty best. If you think she has a poor quality of life, there is nothing wrong with choosing euthanasia. JoZ brings up a good point about SQ...

    I think, like anything, you need to evaluate the individual and go from there. There are some fantastic PCs with excellent instruction, and terrible PCs with scary riders. Many pony clubbers take...

    Yes, I'd be very concerned if my horse wasn't bearing weight on their heel. And I would not think the hocks were the primary cause.

    I work in a vet clinic. Personally, I've had good success with Seresto collars and think they are worth the cost for the time you get out of them, if your animal keeps collars on. Frequent swimming...

    Yes. I do wonder if his horses are able to scramble out of situations just because they are always so perfectly balanced. They can come up with a 5th leg not because they have to use it all the time,...

    I don't know if this is the cause, but I had a horse years ago that had similar symptoms (lameness and it was biting too) and I'm pretty sure the vet diagnosed it as rickety-horse syndrome, so I'm...

    There is no dress code. Wear something COMFORTABLE and pack for all weather conditions!

    I don't think anyone is disputing that yanking occurs in all disciplines (and that everyone has done it at least once in their career). I think most people have an issue with yanking being one of the...

    I'm curious, too. I first went in 2003 and there was no problem finding a hotel, traffic was minimal, etc. I've gone most years since then, and it seems like there are more people every year.

    My old Rambo has lasted 11 years. It's been retired because the waterproofing started to go last year. It did lose a strap when I forgot to tighten it after switching horses, but I can't fault the...

    I'd try soaking with the shoe on.

    And I see no reason not to do the dental, unless you think the horse is going to have difficulty standing under sedation.

    Apparently he has a DVM. And I'm sure he has a good number of granola-type clientele (no offense granolas, most of you are lovely people, but a few take "natural" to the extreme!)

    It is sad to...

    I also agree with using a carrier. If only to contain any kitty pee that may occur on the way. That's not something the next renter of that car wants to be smelling!

    Edited now that I saw the repeat blood work had a normal protein. Still, you would expect PCV and TP to be on the higher side on blood work if she were dehydrated, so I'm not sure I agree with that....

    I thought it was to be suspended above the saddle when the inside hind leg was off the ground, so it would be easier for the horse to step up under its center of gravity with the inside hind. Hence...

    Sounds like spay incontinence to me. Proin and DES are the two most commonly used drugs. You can see about trying DES first, although it doesn't work for all dogs. But you are right, there are...

    I agree with physical and blood work. I'd check his teeth again, not necessarily for points but for anything else that may make eating painful. It wouldn't hurt to deworm again, and then retest the...

    Albumin is smaller than globulin, so it is lost by the kidney first. Early kidney disease may have low albumin and normal globulins, because the albumin is leaked out first, but you don't see it the...

    Are you absolutely sure about those numbers? The albumin is higher than the total protein. Given that total protein = albumin + globulins, this doesn't make sense.

    I would not think electrolyte...

    Just re-read your post, and would expect albumin to be low in those cases. SO the globulins were low?

    Cancer can do that. SCID can, but obviously not the problem if this is an adult.
