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!

  • Pentosan....

    Hi All,
    I'm looking for a 'relatively' inexpensive source to purchase Pentosan. Typically I get it from Horseprerace.com at 46.00 for a 6ml vial. Add shipping to that and OUCH- there HAS to be a cheaper place to get it.
    Anyone???

    Thanks!!!

    You could ask your vet to get you a prescription, so you can get it from Wedgewood. IIRC $175 for a 50ml vial.

      Yep, We get it from the vet who orders it from Wedgewood and marks it up slightly. That's probably the cheapest way to get it.

        Did Wedgewood's price go up? It was $115 for a 50 ml vial of the 250 mg/ml.

            I'm confused, because I just went to http://www.horseprerace.com and put 7 vials in my cart.

            The price per vial is $35.95 (that is for 1-14 vials) and the shipping by FedEx would be $12.18 to Colorado.

            I am not going to buy it right now because I just finished a course of Adequan. But this sounds reasonable to me.

            Are you not in the US?

              FWIW, If you are getting it directly from the vet off his truck and he is doing that I would be careful. That's a major NO/NO. It is illegal for a vet stock compounded drugs then resale. Not to mention it is illegal for a vet to write a script to get Pentosan compounded but that is another story!

                Just ordered two 50 ml bottles from Wedgewood and had them shipped overnight ($30). The pentosan itself is $109/bottle. Regular shipping is $10. Wedgewood Customer Service=priceless! LOVE THEM!!!

                    So if your vet doesn't sell it to you nor do they write a script for it then where do you gets yours? Just curious...

                      Just saying, if your vet is trying to make a profit on something that is illegal, make sure you trust them with other things they do.

                      Pentosan is great stuff! Just too bad the laws are they way they are.

                        Is your friend a vet? Do they sell it to you at cost? Where do they get it? I'm not trying to be a jerk, just trying to figure out how you get it "legally". And I can assure you, my vets can be trusted. I'm guessing we shouldn't be using Tildren either?

                          Last I knew if you had a special permit you can use Tildren. Other then that, no way.

                          You can get Pentosan at Wedgewood for the best price.

                              I know this. I have two bottles from Wedgewood in my meds cabinet right now. But how are we supposed to order from Wedgewood with an "illegal" script. Your posts confuse me

                              And I guess my vets have one of those special permits. In fact, they were the one working to get Tildren FDA approved for use in horses. Safe to sat they can be trusted.

                                There are a couple gray areas with it. There are products that do the same thing but aren't the same thing. Legend and Adequan.

                                It is not FDA approved so it would be an off label use.

                                The biggest thing is that if a vet prescribes it, it can not be compounded. It has to come from overseas. A vet can't write a script or get a drug that is available through the manufacturer and get that drug compounded because of cost.

                                  Ok

                                  got it. It's used also for interstitial cystitis, interesting. I wonder if "people docs" can order from wedgewood? I'll have to look at the wedgewood site, it is new to me. Thanks.

                                    Yes. They do have people and small animal drugs as well.

                                      A friend of mine had bladder cancer and really suffers with IC from time to time. I'll be telling her.

                                        My vet ordered a bottle for me (Wedgewood).. there's a big markup, but it's still way cheaper than anything else on the market.
