    That's a huge difference in scoring for Verdades... 77.3 by Fore and only 70 by the judge from Sweden.

    My vet likes rheaform over metronidazole. Clears it up with just one dose and very inexpensive, though they can go off feed.

    FWIW, I tried AlCar twice, the second time using a double dose, but my guy deteriorated as in got very stiff and major shivers flair up very quickly without the fat. Both vets I discussed this with...

    Wow, sounds like they are charging a premium price for shockwave in your area. I think mine was $350 per session and I think that even included sedation. My vet will also do multiple areas for the...

    Not so sure that this is such great advice. The obese air ferns I know are under very little "stress", but sadly lack a good exercise regimine. I think advising free choice hay without adding...

    They say the vibration direction, up and down, of the Equivibe is better for injury healing than the Theraplate, side to side, which is why more hospitals and rehabilitation places use the former. ...

    Poor guy, but if they are doing shockwave, they might as well hit that area as well. More chance of a better prognosis if you get rid of the inflammation in the back half as well as the front half I...

    So do the vets correlate any of their findings with the initial symptoms you presented with? Mainly, the slamming on the brakes to poop and frequency? Great that you were able to get some sort of...

    Treat for ulcers first because the pain of the ulcers can give the horse anxiety so you are just stuck in a vicious cycle. Then I would do magnesium, thiamine, inositol, and if you have a vet who...

    How are his poops? I would drop the rheaform completely if his runny poops have normalized. The one mare that went the longest without eating wound up with what we assume were ulcers since she...

    I loved Guenter's freestyle as well. The music was reminiscent of what I loved so much of Anky's and Imke's freestyles. The cheesy renditions of current rock music is fun, but really fails to...

    Yes, beautiful, tactful riding by Edward. Geez those horse's legs! Does Zonik translate into tarantula? Especially from the aerial camera angle, he really reminded me of a floaty spider! Another...

    My guy has had some periods of time that his shivers have gotten as bad as you describe. Normally, in winter, and when I have tried to decrease the amount of fat/oil of his EPSM diet. I know...

    It could still be his EPSM. All the ones I've worked with can have these absolute explosive moments. Of course, it could be ulcers as well, but I think muscle spasms can make broncos as well.

    I watched a bit of it and can see what everyone is worried about in the "are today's hunters too fat" thread! Some really pretty rounds though, and not all were super rotund, just a few ;)

    I have used it on three of mine and it cleared up their runny poop in just one dose. They did go off their feed a bit, so I would be careful of using it over an extended period of time. My vet...

    The mare at the end was my favorite. Absolutely lovely! Thanks for posting as that was fun to watch. These modern horses seriously look like they are trotting on the moon!

    Reluctance to drink water can be a symptom of ulcers. In light of the recent move, I think this is highly probable and you might try ranitidine or omeprazole and see if she starts drinking better.

    I remember when Power Packs were a popular remedy for ulcer symptoms, but the way she describes how it works on the large intestine makes it seem viable for healing hind gut ulcers which omeprazole...

    The equineshivers.com website has some interesting tidbits of information, but hard to discern where Dr. Bishop is getting this information.

    For instance, Pentosan as an antihistamine more...

    The equineshivers.com site is certainly thought provoking. Will have my vets read it to get their opinion. Has lots to ponder, such as horses and fibromyalgia, but mostly shivers as an autoimmune...

    I had one who got very sick from the vaccine. It was years ago, but I think it took three months to resolve the snotty nose issue. To this day, her immune system is out of whack, but can't say...
