    Vermont is on the low end of the spectrum overall but I've had 2 horses tested, and they were both on the high side of the normal range for Se levels.

    Sometimes even deficient areas don't result...

    One would assume your agent knows what he is talking about. Maybe shop around some other companies and see what their response and pricing would be?

    During this time, was she on UlcerGard as a preventative measure?

    If not, I would suspect. My mare became a wood-eating beaver when she had ulcers, even with hay present 24/7.

    If she was on...

    Oh and FYI - SantaCruz Animal Health is also the cheapest place I found Previcox - even cheaper than Valley Vet.
  5. Yes, I do believe she is less reactive to those...

    Yes, I do believe she is less reactive to those soft touches once she is warmed up. I suppose it's possible that she just doesn't like light touch, and prefers a more firm contact. I've never had a...

    I have to be careful with bute and this one, she's your typical "ulcer candidate" even without bute, so I avoid it whenever possible. The vet who saw her yesterday recommended previcox, and I think...

    Will do.
  8. The administration schedule my vet recommended...

    The administration schedule my vet recommended was 6mls a week for 6 weeks, and then every 3 weeks after. That's a weekly stab of a needle that she isn't going to tolerate.

    Even the maintenance...

    Probably not much of a help but...I just...DO.

    ...and my house could use some more cleaning attention...my BF isn't a neat freak so we're on the same page with the dust bunnies :lol:

    All of that being said - I'm not big on oral joint supplements. I think they are a waste of money.

    I would love to put her on Pentosan, but she's a needle-phobe and I'm pretty sure my life would...

    Okay - nothing spectacular to report.

    Flexions were positive to some extent on all 4 - which doesn't surprise me at all, she's going to be 20 years old in May. So, a little bit of "old lady...

    Bumping for more questions!

    I am in a similar situation where I will be insulating and finishing off my tack room this summer and want a way to heat it once in a while in the winter. I would be...

    I don't use polos, ever, because I cannot wrap them correctly.

    That being said, I hardly ever use the Velcro-and-go boots either (SMBs, splint boots, etc). When schooling in the arena, I would...

    I believe the period length (6/12/18 months) depends on the balance charged, and/or and the agreement the vet office has with CareCredit.

    Snowblower. There is no other way.

    Of course!

    I have hopped on to the 2/10 appointment so she will be seen then.

    I'm going to have him adjust her, and go over her history with him - flinching, tripping, peeing, and limping - in that order...

    Trying to get her seen 2/10 by a very good vet. He's at a local barn that day so I'm going to haul her over if he can fit us in. Calling his office tomorrow.

    The interest free period is only for a specific time-frame, usually depending on the amount of the bill.

    For example, anything under $200 at my small animal vet doesn't get the interest free...

    Right now, all my normal activity doesn't cause any pain. Walking, sitting, etc is fine. It does stiffen up a little when I keep it in one position for a period of time, but quickly loosens up and...

    Saturday she was "lame" behind, suspected abscess based on the footing right now (frozen lumpy mud because we have no snow). But it was strange - she would only move awkward when stepping off, not...

    oh wait, you meant, how do I pay for them? :lol:

    I never go without bills long enough to save up for an emergency fund,...

    I thought that too, but then wondered - we hear about tripping being a symptom of ulcers or hind gut ulcers, so could a UTI cause pain enough in the "gut" area that maybe it is related? Just thinking...

    Not the case. They aren't in stalls, they can come and go in the aisle, which acts as their "run-in." When I get there, they are outside, she follows me into the barn and pees, even if its on bare...
