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!

  • Panacur vs. Safeguard

    Today I placed my order for spring Power Pacs.. This time I went with Safeguard because it is slightly cheaper.. though I have to ask.. both "panacur" and "safeguard" are the same generic drug, and manufactured by the same company.. sooooo why have them both? and why the price difference.. is one different? better?

    On a side note ..some humor.. as I sighed in the response to the individual price... I told the nice lady I needed 10. TEN! she exclaimed you must have a lot of horses... ah yes I replied.... I have ...ten. (duh)
    At least I get TWO free Uncle Jimmy's hanging balls...

    My guess was the Safe-Guard line was originally sold for all the other types of farm animals. If you do a search on Valley Vet's site you'll see Safe-guard available in many different types, thee are pellets, there's a liquid drench, and various sizes of paste. To save money on the double dose for 5 days deworming I buy the 290 gm tubes which fit into a caulking gun. They are $39.95 from Valley Vet. These are super easy to use and I can do one of my horses with slightly less than one tube. My two guys are 1000 lb and 1100 lb. I believe you could deworm a 1200 horse for the 5 days of double doses with a single tube. Big savings in $$$, especially when deworming more than one horse. I cannot figure out why so horse owners will try the big tubes. The dosing on the tube label tell you how much dewormer to use, yes it says for cattle but the dosage exactly matches that for horses. The tubes have a longer plastic tip that easily inserts into the corner of the horse's mouth and reaches back to the cheek/molar area. My guys stand like champ as I "caulk" them!

      Safeguard Power Dose comes in 2 weights - 1100 and 1250lb. The Power Pack is 1250. Make sure you got the right one

      When I do a Power Pack, since I'm doing it on multiple horses, I use the liquid Safeguard for goats, bought at either Tractor Supply or Southern States. Much much cheaper than a "pack", and easier to give since it mixes right in with food

        can you tell me more about this regiment? sounds like it might be a cost effective method for me as I want to powerpac everyone this spring since I've acquired 3 more over a year and want to get everyone on the exact same schedule.

          Panacur was orginally sold as a veterinary product only. They they brought Safeguard as the OTC version. I don't understand mega company marketing. Now Panacur is OTC for large animals too.

          Price difference is prob a reflection of the "need" to recoup the FDA associated costs on getting Panacur approved, way back when.

            Safeguard liquid, for goats, at either TSC or SS, is the same concentration of fenbedazole - 10%. So, the dosing is the same - 4.6mL/100lb per day for each of the 5 days.

            If you have, say, 3000lb worth of horseflesh, you need 138mL worth of liquid each day, or 690mL in total.

            The smaller bottles are 125mL (you'd need 6), but they do come as large as 1000mL (you'd have leftovers).

            So, whether you go with multiple 125mL bottles, or a 1000mL bottle (not sure if it comes in, say, a 500mL bottle?) depends on how much total weight you have to deworm.

            Odorless, pretty tasteless, easy peasy to put in the feed. I usually fix a small serving and make it extra yummy with a wee bit of molasses, or a few spoonsful of applesauce, or something, just to lessen the risk even further of them not eating it (all), and then feed the rest of the meal after that's done. Their bowls get licked clean every time.

              Bumping... is the carrier paste the same too? Are there any differences at all besides the label? I see on the label info that Merck/Intervet markets both, and both are manufactured by DPT Laboratories of San Antonio, TX.

                I find all of this very interesting, especially the information on the liquid for goats. One thing I would like to point out is to make sure your horses are getting ENOUGH wormer. I bought a OTTB last March that was thin and I kept trying to put weight on him worming him regulary and alternating wormers. He is 17.1hh and when filled out a very impressive boy. But while trying to put weight on him I consulted my vet and she told me to make sure that he is getting enough. He is roughly 1300-1400lbs, and since he is so big she told me that I should probably be powerpacking him with 1 powerpac tube and 1 regular tube. And I firmly believe that made the difference, because as soon as I did this he started to pick up weight very fast.
