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!

  • Jingles for my Corgi dog please!

    As if life was not "interesting" enough for me right now...my husband just called to say that he is taking the love of our life - our Corgi Chrissy to the vet. She will not eat but is drinking lots of water and wants to be let out to pee every hour or so. It sounds like the symptoms of a human with diabetes. Can dogs get diabetes? Appointment is not for another 2 1/2 hours and I am so worried.

    This is her dressed for Halloween:

      Might be just a simple urinary tract infection, antibiotics usually clear those up.

      However, there is a condition called diabetes insipidous, the vet suspected that my dog has it, she drinks more than a normal dog, but the diagnosis can be risky, and there really isn't anything that can be done about it. Also, it is not life threatening, not like regular diabetes. Her first inclination was that her urine is always very dilute.

      Jingles that it is something easily cured.

        Thank you!!! I am about as close to tears as you can get. This is one of those dogs who is just not replacable. I actually have 5 Corgis ...
        Chrissy,
        her husband KC of 2 litters,
        Annie - a pup that was so tiny and sick we kept her,
        Bruiser - a pup my husband fell in love with...and
        Petey - SPCA rescue that is visually impared

        I love them all - but Chrissy was the first and is my 4 legged child.

                Chrissy's husband - KC started having joint issues fairly young (hence only 2 litters)..so bad that if we let him out to get too much exercise - he would hurt so much the next day that he would drag himself in the back end and cry.. You could also hear his hip make a pop noise when he moved...yikes! Rimadil (spelling??) worked wonders on him! It took about 3-5 weeks of him being on it - but wow did it work!! It also does not pose a danger to major organs like some of the other meds do. He has been on it for years and although he is not allowed full "turnout in the yard" like the other outside dogs, he is not in pain anymore and his hip no longer makes any noise.

                Want to hear something funny - My Mother was on Rimadil when we put KC on it - she thought that was funny.

                  Dogs can get diabetes. My old schnauzer had it and I managed it with 2x a day insulin shots for a few years. Once you get their levels right, they do fine. Hope your girl has something more easily resolved, but diabetes is manageable if that is the diagnosis.

                    There are a *lot* of things that can cause excessive water consumption and urination in dogs. Diabetes is only one of them. You mentioned that she had had litters - is she spayed now? If not, another thing on the list would be a pyometra (infected uterus).

                    Hopefully it's something not serious. You and Chrissy are in my thoughts!

                        Jingles

                        Jingles to you and your Corgi. Our newest canine addition is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi who will be ten months old tomorrow (we've had him since he was nine weeks). He is a fabulous dog and has the best personality ever.

                        One of our cats actually had a pyometra a few years back- not a pretty situation. She's okay now, but had to have an emergency spay operation which luckily saved her since we caught it early on.

                        Hopefully it is something that will clear up quickly! Jingles!

                          Jingling for your Chrissy! I have a Crosby (corgi too) and he is the LOFF of my life! I am a vet tech, but when my pets are sick, I am as much of a worry wart and wreck as everyone else!

                          The previous posts are correct that many things can cause excessive drinking & urination (including diabetes which can be managed w/ twice daily insulin).

                          Jingles that it is just a simple UTI (urinary tract infection)

                            Jingles for your Corgi!

                            Another Corgi fan here, I have two. The love of my life, Butler, will be 13 on Valentine's Day, and, alas, has spinal arthritis. He's about lost the use of his back end, he can hop for three or four strides, then flops over. He's pretty good at moving his back end, pushing with his RH, but his LH is pretty useless. He's on Metacam. I know he won't be with me much longer, and am dreading it. My other Corgi, Beauregard, is 5, so he'll have some big pawprints to fill as top dog when his big brother has to go.

                            Anyhow, hope it is nothing serous with your girl!!

                              Any news yet?
                              I have known several dogs with diabetes, one the schnauzer of my own doctor, that said they sure treat dogs a little bit different than people, but he was following the vet's advice, as the dog was sure doing well with that program.

                              As others said, it may not be that after all.

                                        Jingles for Chrissy! I hope it is something easy like a UTI.

                                        I have six Corgis....great dogs aren't they?

                                        If it IS diabetes, from what I hear it's manageable. My grandfather had an old dog that lived for many happy years being given insulin shots.
