Re: Morgan Mare Diagnosed with EMS and PPID
Hi Sherry, I did start working on the Case History, I'll try to finish that up and post it. I will also get the full set of hoof photos, she was just trimmed yesterday. She is quite comfortable in her boots/pads, if I take them off and she is on the pea gravel in the dry lot that is when she is very sore. I did have blood drawn on Monday to re-test her insulin, waiting on results. At that point she had been off metformin for a few days because I had run out of it and thought I had read that it wasn't really useful. She had been on it for about 3 weeks before I ran out. The vet asked me to put her back on it, so she is now getting 10-1000mg pills 2x per day.
I don't have her on Phytoquench w/DC or Devil's Claw, is there any benefit to doing one over the other? If I go with just DC, is there any certain brand that is best for her?
I did check with the EA folks about the hay sample test and this is what she said:
Based on my findings this sample was analyzed with the 601 Equi-Tech which is a combination of NIR and Wet Chemistry minerals.
So I think that means it is okay to feed her without soaking?
Thank you again for your help!
