    Hi everyone,

    I'm planning on moving to Victoria in the near future and am looking for a barn. I do ride dressage so access to a dressage instructor would be good but not necessary. Would love to...

    Thanks Susan, that makes sense to me. I'll get a grazing muzzle. I was going to put one on her when they were out on grass for a few more hours but clearly she needs one asap. For now she's on a dry...

    Sid, I have not tried that. I'll talk to the barn manager and see if it's possible to get any or if I can buy my own just to see how my horse does on it. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I've had her since a 3 year old, no idea about umbilical surgery. She has not had previous colic surgeries though. Adhesions have crossed my mine as well. How would you treat this if it were the case...

    My mare is fine and is coming home today. But still lots of questions about what could be causing this.

    She's been on pre and probiotics since her surgery. They have now suggested adding electrolytes too.
    Thank you for the kind thoughts, feeling pretty sad just sitting here worrying about her.

    Reoccurring gas colic :(

    Ugh my horse is in the clinic currently. She had colic surgery in august, a twisted large colon and right dorsal displacement. Recovered really well. Then in December colicked again but was fine, got...

    We're having a better day today. I think she must have still been dopey and numb from the anesthetic and epidural yesterday. This morning she was able to tip toe outside and have a pee. I've confined...
  11. Dog recovering from cruciate surgery. Suggestions? Tips?

    My dog has cruciate surgery today, not the TPLO procedure, the other one. The angles of her bones and her really bad hips meant TPLO wouldn't be good for her. I've got a super detailed package of...

    Gotcha. Well get your chiro out and see what she thinks, go from there. I feel for you, it's so hard what it gets complicated like this. I dealt with my mare's mystery lameness for almost 2 years :(

    That's good to hear! My picky eater is also on Acana after trying so many different foods. It'a a bit ridiculous but I have 3 tubs of their food in my house: pork and butternut squash, beef, and lamb...

    In regards to previcox, I would try to find out what is actually going on before doing that. My mare is now on previcox but only after the second vet finally did some diagnostics and found a meniscal...

    I also recommend getting a second opinion. I've got a problem horse as well, 2 suspensory injuries, colic surgery, and a mystery right hind lameness. Mystery lameness was recently diagnosed after...

    I spoke to my vet and she also said once a day is fine! We're doing 1.5 scoops once a day instead of 1 AM and 1 PM. She thought doubling the dose wouldn't do any harm but likely it would be a waste.
  19. feeding probiotics, from twice a day to once a day?

    My horse gets Equine Choice pre and probiotics. One scoop in the morning and one in the evening. She had colic surgery in August and was put on the Equine Choice after that as recommended by my vet....

    Likely almost that long, PBP. We don't know for sure.Why the other clinic didn't want to do diagnostics beats me. We just did annual injections and kept her strong and she was going really well. She...

    Thanks again everyone.

    The vet is coming tomorrow to do a joint injection and I have a list of questions for her.
  22. Thanks Beowulf. I feel like I did all those...

    Thanks Beowulf. I feel like I did all those things unknowingly 2 years ago! She was off, my vet recommended a stifle injection, that helped immensely and I rehabbed her from there. She had colic...

    Thanks for the advice. I think you are correct too. I'll give the clinic a call tomorrow ask about PRP and IRAP, see which might be best or if we should just do both. My horse is not a super...
  24. Tear in the meniscus of the stifle. Looking for thoughts, advice, anything.

    Well the good news is I finally have a diagnosis after 4 vets and honestly like 2+ years of on and off lameness issues. My horse has a moderate to severe tear in the meniscus of the stifle. Her story...

    I think it depends on the horse kind of. I've never noticed flies getting under the sheets but I have heard that as well. I use fly sheets. My horse does get hot in the thicker mesh ones though, so I...
