Has he been dewormed with Zimectrin Gold lately?
Poor boy! I'd be making all his meals into a soupy mash and soaking his hay to allow him to eat more comfortably until he heals. :(
I know Farm and Fleet carries Cough Free, so that's definitely an option. :yes:
Because I prefer to try non-prescription things first, before pulling out the "big guns". :D :yes:
Alas, my mare's the only one with allergies! :lol:
I looked up the ingredients to Air Power..
"Honey, apple cider vinegar, aloe vera, ethyl alcohol, menthol, lemon juice, oil of eucalyptus."
I'd like to try something non-prescription first if I can help it, but I'll definitely keep that in mind, thanks for the info! :)
Interesting! That would definitely be cost efficient! :)
Is it a syrup or liquid? I loooooooooove Finish Line products! :D
I don't think my mare would object to getting pudding.. :lol::lol:
Good to know, I may have to try it! :) Do you have to feed a lot of it?
I'm researching it now, thanks!
Is it palatable? Miss diva mare is REALLY picky. :lol:
ZEV? Never heard of it. :) Where can I find it, got a link?

If the horse is anything but a very hard keeper, no grain. :)
If the horse absolutely NEEDS grain, a low NSC one like TC Senior would be a wise choice.
Also, ad lib forage, plenty of turnout...
I am so so sorry for your loss.
I do think the fact that the vet said they had never seen anything quite like what they found in the necropsy, and that they'll be doing a case study on it, is a...
Well thanks! :D
IT WORKED FOR MY HUSBAND'S FRIEND'S SISTER'S DOG'S WALKPINTALOOSABRED! :lol:
ACK! Horse has ulcers? Treatment? :confused:
Ulcerguard! Gastroguard! :D
GG costs HOW MUCH?! :eek:
Alternatives to Ga$troguard?! :o
Sweet itch really sucks, doesn't it? :(
This is my mare's regimen to keep it at bay:
1. Flax seed, at least 1/3 cup. She's getting 1/2 cup at the moment. I feed it whole and unsoaked, works...
Like others said, just get the flavored, powdered bute and put it in a ziploc with the horse's grain, so all the barn folks have to do is just dump the baggy.
Any horse crazy teenage girls at your...
