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!

  • Help me wait for a call back

    My Pom got her rabies, lyme and bordatella vaccs two hours ago and is not doing well. She is lying next to me shaking. When you make her walk she has her head low and her tail between her legs. We went to the feed store which is her favorite place in the world and she didn't want to get out of the car! She is not afraid of the vet or of getting shots so it has to be some kind of a reaction. Her temp is 102.3 I did call the vet back and am waiting for a call back. Speculations and jingles welcomed.

        I just left another message, hopefully they call back soon. She drank a little water and peed when I took her outside but wouldn't even eat a little piece of ham when offered.

          Is there another vet hospital close by? Even if you aren't a client there, they will have experience with vaccine reactions.

            Ok, vet called back and had me give her benadryl and previcox. She said I should start to see improvement in about an hour. She didn't seem concerned since she isn't having any symptoms of anaphylaxis and her temp is normal. Thanks!

              She seems to be perking up a bit. She went up the stairs into the bedroom on her own and wagged her tail a little on the way up when she saw me looking at her.

                This is precisely why my animals are NOT over-vaccinated. Babies get their first set of shots, a booster a year later, and that's it. Rabies as needed...

                      Coming to this late, but, hoping that she is doing better now.

                        My sheltie is thunder and firework phobic. We are going away over the week of the 4th of July so we can't go with a petsitter like usual and have to board him somewhere so he doesn't injure himself. That is why the pom had to get the vaccinations. She seems pretty much back to normal except when I pick her up she yipes like she is sore everywhere. Thanks for asking about her!

                          See Laurie, it's all your fault for over vaccinating. Sheesh...some people. Glad to hear she's on the mend. You might want to think about spacing them out the next time.

                            The Bordatella is one that she has never had before or at least hasn't had since she was a pup, but the other two she has. I gave the DHLPP myself back in March with no problem so I guess is was either the Bordatella or the combo that was too much for her. Most likely she will never have to get it again since we don't ever board her usually. Poor thing, she is the brave one and she is the one paying the price for the scaredy cat!

                              I have used the nasal Kennel Cough vaccine and given it to my dog myself, that way you can stagger the vaccinations instead of giving everything at once.

                                  Oh, good! I was about to respond about Benadryl, but it seems you are in a good place now. I have to dose my youngest dog with Benadryl for a day prior to her vacs or she has a reaction, too. I keep her on the meds 'till the day after, as per my vet's advice. Keep that in mind for the next time, but talk with your vet about strategies, just in case.

                                    Will do, thanks. She is 8, almost 9. Seems weird she would have a reaction after all this time but it is obvious she did.
                                    The vet told me to call her back an hour after I gave her the meds and let her know how she was. After an hour I went to check on her and couldn't find her! We went crazy searching the house. Finally found her all the way in the back of the linen closet. Scared the crap out of me all over again!

                                        It might not have been the vaccinations themselves, but the medium they are mixed with. My dogs (this was about 8 or more years ago) would get a lump where they were vaccinated, and the vet thought it was the specific vaccine brand and what it was mixed with. She changed brands and no more lumps or reactions.

                                        Hope she's doing fine today.
