    Eating bark is actually considered a normal horse behavior in the winter, so you are right about the time of year!

    I'd get radiographs of the neck to definitively diagnose the arthritis. But be aware that this is a progressive disease. If he did not respond to the original injections, you aren't going to have a...

    It's usually a general precaution, even if the horse immediately goes to isolation on arrival. Which should be the case if EHM was suspected.

    I agree with what the others have said-- assuming the kidney values look OK, try getting some sedation and see about doing the I-131. Methimazole will cause peaks and troughs in T4 levels throughout...

    If you are near a location with veterinary oncologists, it may be worth going in for a consult. They would at the very least be able to give you the most up-to-date statistics on treatment success...

    I have also heard of it used for canine anxiety. It is also added to feline c/d, which is a prescription food formulated for cats with FLUTD (which is caused by stress).

    I agree to start with the vet. If he has a bilateral injury he won't necessarily appear lame. I don't think I would jump without a vet exam first. Most horses, even if they are bored, aren't going to...

    No, it's not normal, but some cats are just more predisposed to dental disease. I'm surprised you got it done for such a small amount, however. Less than $200 for a dental, assuming it includes...

    Not saying an air embolism is totally out of the question, but horses (and ponies) generally require a lot of air to have any effect. You'd have to be very purposeful in injecting air to give enough...

    I agree its time to talk to your vet about your goals and how far you want to go. As others have said, EPM testing might be worthwhile since there are treatment options. Also, did you ever try...

    Neck rads are not easy to read, so it would most likely be one of the vets on the forum. To me, it might be worth sending them to an outside radiologist who reads a lot of them and is unbiased. Then...

    To be fair, garden shears are used to trim small ruminant feet. No excuse for not researching hoof trimming in horses, but maybe that's where he got the idea?
