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!

    Vet just prescribed for pain relief and inflammation for my pup. Is supposedly brand new and better on their tummies. Experiences/feedback from anyone? A search here didn't really turn anything up.
    Some days the best thing about my job is that the chair spins.

    Wow, that looks interesting. *I* want to try it! (Doesn't look like that class of meds is available for people though, sad.)

      Yes I'd heard about it from a vet at a meeting, but don't know anyone who's used it yet. It does sound great, though, except for the price tag. I hope your dog is small- mine would take 2 100 mg pills once a day, looks like a 45 day supply would cost me about $300.

        Our clinic just starting using it about 2 weeks ago. There is a $30 rebate if at least 30(?) tablets are purchased. There does not seem to be a limit on how many rebates can be claimed at the present time. I have not heard any feedback yet from the people that are using it.

          I got some today for Wallis, who has arthritis in his hips, primarily in the left. Vet was excited about it, but the negative side effects---vomiting, diarrhea, protein loss, etc. doesn't seem like it's "safer than Previcox". I paid something like $85* for #30 60 mg tablets. IF he's correct in saying that every day dosage for 2 weeks, then stopping for a time, works, it would be worth it.

          *Let me check my bill--he had X-ray$ taken as well.

              My 11yr old shepherd has been on it for a little more then three weeks. I am trying it with her because she cannot tolerate any NSAIDs (profuse vomiting). So far knock on wood so good. She is still very active, but after longer walks, hikes, she was stiff with intermittent lameness. She also was popping out of her weaves in agility-she gets to play in agility because she still has fun, not because she has to.
              I wouldn't say it is a miracle drug for her-but she is very fit, active, and wasn't severely lame, just showing stiffness. Now, she is no longer having any lameness, she elected to complete her weave poles the other day, and she is not as grumpy with the other dogs when they want to play. So I feel like it is helping.
              It is pricey, but not more then I would spend on name brand Rimadyl.
              She did vomit once but had been out hiking, so possible ate something that day. I was giving it with food initially, but have started giving it on an empty stomach since so far she is tolerating it. It is better absorbed on an empty stomach.
              I plan to keep her on it.

                RE: cost of Galliprant

                I got my digits confused. The cost of 30 pills of 60mg strength was $58, not $85. Not quite $2 a pill.

                  My Vet is very excited about having it available. I am figuring it will be the next thing for my ancient ESS rescue.

                    It should easier on their stomachs, it's an EP4 receptor antagonist and doesn't involve the COX pathway. It should avoid the typical GI issues associated with the COX-1 inhibitors.

                    The EP4 receptor is also an attractive target for autoimmune diseases (RA, MS etc.) and oncology and there are drug candidates out there in the various stages of clinical trials.

                        I so love that the COTH family can understand all that medical sciency gobbledy gook, give honest feedback and help us mere mortals try and make sense of it all!

                          My dog just had TPLO surgery about two and a half weeks ago.... she was on Galliprant from our regular vet, then the orthopedic vet gave it to us post-op. We had 100 mg capsules from the regular vet (I think that was once a day), and then the orthopedic vet gave us liquid -- 1 mL 2x a day - not sure what the suspension combo was though. However, fi you get liquid, make sure you really get it in the back of their mouth...like the corner of their mouth like you do a wormer with a horse. It has a horrible taste (thats what they told me) and give them a treat chaser

                          Bailey (my dog) seemed to do well on it, granted she was also only on it for about 3 weeks and was also on Tramadol and Gabapentin.

                          wait-- I think I got the Gabapentin and Gallaprant mixed up. She was on liquid Gabapentin. Whoops!
