    RAyers, do you know much about the silicates...

    RAyers, do you know much about the silicates thought to be implicated in silicosis-associated osteoporosis/bone fragility syndrome? I find it interesting that it is so regional (mostly Monterey...

    No firearms, but an unexpected guard-dog...when I adopted my pup, I wanted a retriever and thought of Chows as being one of the breeds I was least likely to ever own, but the joke's on me, because...
  3. As mentioned above, shoes with hind trailers...

    As mentioned above, shoes with hind trailers change the biomechanics of the entire leg as soon as they are put on; it's not just a matter of making the horse sounder/less painful, it's a matter of...

    You can also get a cheaper fly sheet and spray it yourself with permethrin, which is what the Bug Buster uses - just do it outside in a well-ventilated area, spray the heck out of it (following...

    I have a general thought regarding Hard Keepers 101:

    One thing forgotten about grains is that many products are meant to be COMPLETE feeds. For example, Purina Equine Senior is labeled to be fed...

    LOL, any time! The challenge sometimes is to make sure you don't use TOO much lingo for non-vets. I'm a total infectious disease nerd, and our week of vector-borne diseases was one of my favorite so...

  8. To expand on what Chocomare said, equine...

    To expand on what Chocomare said, equine monocytic ehrlichiosis is Potomac Horse Fever and more properly called neorickettsiosis, because ehrlichiosis doesn't have enough syllables. :p "Ehrlichiosis"...

    I'm at 2700 mg/day. I increased the dose gradually over about a month from 600 mg. My pain management doc said that a lot of his patients have to be at at least 1800 mg/day to see maximum benefit.

    Yes, YM Does V, I just got "lucky" and have had MORE pain than my surgeons expected. As for your procedure, wow! Glad you're doing OK and that you got the clamshell off. I am kind of...

    I'm glad you came out OK. :) I have to admit that I chuckled when I read the OP, although it's true I had an unusual set of problems. I had a spondlylolisthesis at L5-S1 that had kind of munched my...

    Nope, no villi in the colon. I would not expect there to be residual problems from an impaction colic months ago unless there were something wrong. Are his teeth in reasonable condition? Has the...

    This picture shows a larksfoot assist. If you imagine taking the end of the rope with the loop in it and just pulling it forward so that the two are running parallel to each other between the front...

    Nothing - I can't hold a book and pet a cat at the same time. It's not easy to get alone time around here . . .

    I was in kind of a sour mood for most of today and didn't pay much attention, so my answer should probably be White-Crowned Sparrow but I can't say for sure. I did, however, stop by the wastewater...

    I don't know that it changed the world, but I changed one kitty's world for the better five years ago. :)

    I am a veterinary student, and I spend time each year castrating horses and providing...

    Have you taken radiographs? Did the vet see anything on ultrasound besides soft tissue swelling?

    Sweetpea: I haven't even been to northern FL, but I am a veterinary student and have experienced life in two different teaching institutions. For myself, next time I have an urgent medical issue, if...
  20. It's not off-label now, but the bigger impact is...

    It's not off-label now, but the bigger impact is that there is an FDA approved drug and it no longer has to be compounded. You now have the FDA saying that this product is not only effective (which...

    I don't remember what brand/style I ended up with, but I went to REI a few years ago and tried on lightweight hiking boots until I found some I liked, and I've been very happy with my boots. I think...

    Yup. And a lot of people are very bad at estimating weights for ponies (and weight tapes are not necessarily reliable enough, if people even use them), and being off by a couple hundred pounds is a...

    A foal can get sick and become a temporary reservoir for infectious disease just as much as an adult horse can; somewhat more so, in fact, because their immune systems are naive. If it's a...

    I'm a vet student, I love surgery, I've castrated a number of horses (which were safely and fully anesthetized for the whole procedure), I think colic surgery - to be able to poison such a large and...

    Can you provide a reference for this statement, please? Any NSAID affecting COX-1 affects platelet aggregation, and I can't find any reference showing that meclofenamic acid is strongly COX-2...
