    Only if they appear out of sorts somehow. Having a gelding that reacts to vaccinations (he has Cushing's) has taught me to notice very quickly if they don't feel well. I can usually tell if either...

    A horse at my barn had its eye removed. They sewed some kind of a ball inside so it wouldn't appear sunken. She continued to ride, show, and drive without issues, although I will say her owner was...

    Which density pad are you using in the boots? When my gelding had laminitis the vet specifically instructed me to order the soft pads (I used the Easy Boot Trail, because this was before the Easy...

    I board, but I brought in my own stall mats and put them in my horses' paddock along the front fence where the gate and the shelter are. The BO puts down a crushed rock mix, but it just gets churned...

    I'm also a little confused by your question, but I'll answer :)

    After a laminitic episode, my gelding wore Easy Boot Trails on the fronts only in his 1/4 acre paddock for an entire winter. I...

    I use these. The mini size are plenty big enough to hold a Prascend. The center is soft so you can shove the pill completely inside and it's completely covered, so hopefully, your mare won't be...

    So is there some way that more of the hay he drops could be salvaged?

    Maybe mats (if the stall is not already matted) with the shavings kept clear of that area to the extent possible, or perhaps...

    I know it's meant to be fed at a higher level, but that's all it's been taking to keep the weight on him. He gets a ration balancer in his lunch. Given that he's such a picky eater since the...

    22 lbs really isn't that skimpy. That's about all my horses get per day and they're both good sized horses. Better he feel a little hungry than die from founder.

    My gelding with Cushing's (but not IR) has become an increasingly picky eater over the years.

    I've never tried the High Point pellets but he ate the powder mixed with soaked hay pellets for a...

    My vet was unable to flush my mare's tear ducts. If I recall correctly, the solution on one side just ran right back out and on the other side it disappeared. Vet said it was probably congenital...

    Instead of a ration balancer you could try a small amount of hay pellets with a vitamin/mineral supplement. Horsetech's High Point Grass is a good one.

    I just started using SmartPituitary on my gelding with Cushing's. It contains chasteberry. He is already on Prascend and his ACTH levels are controlled, but the Prascend is not doing much for his...

    Have you tried the Pill Camo? I think it works so well because he pill is stuffed down inside a paste and completely covered, so the horse can't smell anything suspicious :) Like I said, I've even...

    Have you tried Chasteberry? I would always go with Prascend or pergolide first, but if a horse couldn't tolerate the meds, I would try the chasteberry. I'm actually using it in addition to Prascend...
