Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

  • Dog vomiting blood and bleeding from rectum :(

    Max is an 11 year old Lab, he's at the clinic now on IV's.....he started vomiting this morning clear and it progressed to bloody and foamy. We called the vet and got him there within an hour - he was vomiting every 15 minutes by then. He was not dehydrated or bloated and only had a 1 degree temp so the vet gave him some antibiotics, an anti-nausea shot, and was ready to send us home with charcoal and anti-b's but when we stood Max up to leave he was in a pool of blood that came from his rectum. At that point he put him on a catheter and started an IV and gave him some potassium. He's staying at the clinic, but we have no idea what it could be . The vet is leaning toward poisoning. My daughter saw an exterminator at our neighbors a couple of days ago but they've left town and we can't reach them to ask.

    Any experiences with anything like this? We just put our 15 year old dog down a couple of weeks ago.... Our 11 year old Husky isn't doing too well right now either (she's got no cartilage left in one knee). This is too much .

    I am so so sorry.

    Could it be hemorrhagic gastroenteritis? Or an hemangiosarcoma?

    I've seen dogs vomit blood and have severe bloody diarrhea with both. (Not a vet here, just a longtime dog owner.)

    Jingles coming your oldster's way...

        My dog had pancreatitis and the symptoms matched. Apparently she at the berries off of a Virginia Creeper plant (I didn't realize the stupid plant had berries until then). Another dog had the same symptoms with some kind of virus or something too. With the second dog all they did was treat the symptoms, and the said a liver disease was the culprit.

        And it might not be the exterminator in the neighborhood, but someone who put out rat poison and the rat ran outside to die.

          Thanks Liz.....I read about HGE and fortunately, from what I read, the vet is treated it for that already. Thanks for the jingles. He's the best old guy and was so well behaved, even when he told us the shot would burn he sat stoically. I hate that he's all alone there.

          Sorry Jan, I was posting at the same time. How did your dogs do?

              The worst is having to leave them there, sick and alone, is it.

              But, that is their best chance, that is what our vets say ...

              Wishing they find what it is and can help.


              • Original Poster

                Well the vet just called and said that he's alert and bright eyed. He hasn't vomited again but there was a little more blood. Keep jingling please - I greatly appreciate it!


                • #9
                  many jingles

                  hope he continues to recover

                    I had that happen years ago with a young dog. The culprit was the park and the use of herbicides at the park. Hope all is well.

                      Thanks SV....we haven't used anything like that in our own yards, BUT we are on a farm and we do have crops in every direction around us. From what I know, our crops are already so far behind the farmers haven't used anything on them because they don't want to waste the money (our tenant farmer is going to mow our fields and cut his losses....another sad subject).

                      We also live on the lake and wonder if he got a bacteria. The vet says this is possible too - and again, the anti b's he's prescribed should cover any e coli, salmonella or giardia(sp?). The HGE can present from a bacterial infection as well. This is so frustrating and feel so terrible for him.

                        I forgot to add that our dog was fine after the treatment at the vets. We just were much more cautious about where he went after that. It does sound that you caught things in time. Best wishes to you and your sweet lab.


                        • #13
                          Big big jingles for your Labberdawggie Max. Good to hear that he was alert! Fingers crossed he's through the worst of it and comes home soon.


                          • #14
                            Hope he's ok, sounds like you caught it in time. Jingles!

                              My guess would be Wafarin a common ingredient in rat poison. Has your vet run a clotting profile on him if not I would and get him started on Vitamin K.

                                He's not clotting, but on the vit K already......thanks!

                                A friend said she had 2 dogs with this last year and it was from a mold toxin from digging in the compost pile. Gosh, it sounds like it could be anything!

                                  Jingles for you.

                                    My other suggestions to look into would into be the immune disorders like Thromobocytopenia and IMHA (Immune mediated henolytic anemia) maybe an abdominal ultrasound to take a peak at his spleen see what its up too.

                                      But his symptoms sound so much like my old Lab's when he ingested poision!!!!!
