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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • No vet will see my cat ---wtd for a uti at home?

    Well this sucks. I'm pretty new to the area, met and used two local vets i liked last fall, and now have a new rescue cat. She began eliminating inapproriatelylast week while I was away, and this am i saw blood in her urine. (i've been away for two weeks and she was likely stressed, plus she wasn't eating her canned food so ate Origen 6fish kibble while I was away. She does drink lots of water daily.
    So neither vet, nor anyone within 50 miles will see her. My vets say nope, not taking new patients, take her to an emergency vet. Ok, i'll be able to get there in a few days, but not until----i have a badly sprained foot and am one legged lame atm.

    So aside from back to canned food w water added, how else can i get her some relief until I get to the er vet tomorrow soonest, maybe not until Thursday. ?

    Is there someone you know and trust who you can get to take the cat to the emergency vet on your behalf? You would probably be able to speak to the vet via cell during the consult, so you could be involved.

      Cosequin. Soak some in a little water in one of the kitten bottles and cut off tip of nipple and force feed 2x a day
      it works I learned right here on coth. You can get Cosequin and bottles at pet store. Dissolve one capsule in a little water 2x a day

        Can you have someone drive you and the cat to the emergency vet (and carry the pet carrier for you? I don’t see why a local vet (even with the COVID restrictions) won’t see you as an emergency during normal working hours. If you’ve used two of the vets then you aren’t a new client.

            I wouldn't wait that long if at all possible to get to the vet. Sounds like this was brewing while you were away and kitty could be quite ill. Try to find someone to get you to the emergency vet or maybe there's a mobile vet that could come? I too don't understand why a vet wouldn't see you if you've been there before. The vets around here are still seeing patients in spite of the virus...I've been to mine 4 times for various issues in the last 2 months.

                Tbh I am ticked off they won't see her. Yes, she is a new pet, but I am an established client--so wth? Vermont is pretty locked down comparativly, but this is stupid. I'll take her to the emergency vet tomorrow myself, 60 miles away and 120 to walk in the door before treatment. Grrrrrr

                  I am not a Nutritionist but others on Coth said it moves the sand and stones down. I just know it worked fast when my 23 yr old queen got sick.
                  hurry as uremic poisoning is bad. Get it now and use it now.

                    Have you checked the phone directory for vets or Googled? Is there not a cat specialist in the area? That is sooooo against what vets sign up to do! I am so sorry! Wish I were closer and could help. Good luck!

                      Does the rescue that you got her from have a relationship with a vet? Maybe he/she would take see kitty?
                      Oh, well, clearly you're not thoroughly indoctrinated to COTH yet, because finger pointing and drawing conclusions are the cornerstones of this great online community. (Tidy Rabbit)

                        She literally came limping out of the woods to me the morning after I arrived at my winter desintation. Emaciated and extremely reactive to other cats. Like screaming in fear when they even enter the room reactive. My young barn cat is curious and she's triggering his predatory instincts and attacks her every chance he gets, so they are separated around the clock---and I was gone for two weeks, so plenty stressed.
                        I had her vetted two days after she limped up to me, meowing like crazy. She was spayed and vacc'ed and examined. Vet said leg needed time, and she needed lots of rest. After all of that there was no way I was leaving her at that barn. She'd already have died I think. So not an offical rescue i'm afraid. She's 8 or 9 months old.

                          Find a local rescue to help you, either by taking her in themselves (as in you turn her over) or getting her to their vet for a fee.

                            Given your cat's young age and she was stressed while you were gone, she likely has stress related bladder inflammation and not a UTI. Generally clinical signs resolve on their own so continued monitoring is appropriate in this situation.

                              Got her into vet this am, and she agrees with you, especially as her urine looks so good. Test results later today and meds as necessay. I'm going to try another litter and see if that encourages her to use her box exclusively again.

                              Thanks everyone!

                                        I’ve seen stoned cats and dogs who were in a room where humans were smoking grass or hashish.

                                        Just tell cat not to bogart the joint.
