Cory's frog

Deb Funderburk <hawkhilldeb@...>
 

Hi group-- Cory is still quite painful, even after raising his pergolide dose to 7 mg and putting him on Metformin and Alcar. I have gotten Phytoquench but haven't been able to get any of it into him as of yet. He is unwilling to stand on one foot while I work on the other and so yesterday I gave him Bute, hoping to be able to trim today and in fact, he was able to let me pick his feet up a little. I have worked on him all morning and feel that I have made some progress on the left front, which seems to be the most painful. (It is harder for him to stand on it for me to do the right.)

When I raised the right front and brushed off the shavings, I was shocked to find that the frog had disappeared overnight. Well, it is still there, of course, but a thick layer of it peeled off (and I in fact found it in the shavings) and I feel like I am looking into a well when I peer down into the recess it left. I really don't know what this means, because the mantra I have been chanting for the last few days is Linda's statement that the heels "definitely need to come down to at least be even with the surface of the frog". The remaining frog isn't mushy or smelly like it is thrushy and this is his least painful foot. The sole also seems to be flaking off a little, but isn't soft.

I did manage to lower his right heel a little and also brought the toe back some, but it is a struggle while he is so unwilling to stand on the left. I uploaded some pictures, and hope I can take more this afternoon, after we both rest. Would love to have some feedback about the frog and how the trim on the left is going, if you can tell anything from the few pictures. I had planned on having more x-rays made later on in the winter, but perhaps it would be more useful to do it now? Also, could use some suggestions about getting the Phytoquench into him.

MESSAGE POSTING ETIQUETTE - KEEPING ECIR USER FRIENDLY

ThePitchforkPrincess@...
 

This is a high volume list that can be difficult to follow. Help make it easier for everyone by following the guidelines below:

 

1) Sign your posts with your first name, location, the date you joined. When asking for advice, provide a link to your case history or photos. The volunteers need all this information to provide quality responses to questions and suggestions for local support, vendors, vets, hoof care, etc. Limit your signature to 3 or 4 lines.

 

2) Delete all but the part of the message you're replying to before posting.

Classic Yahoo users: Keep who is saying what clear by leaving the chevrons (>) in front of the text you are answering then type your response in a new paragraph below.

Neo users: click on the words "Show Message History" (located in the lower right corner of the reply box) and erase the text that appears below it.

 

3) Change the subject line when threads take off in new directions indicate the topic . For example: NOW: New Subject (was Old Subject).

 

4) Don't re-post messages if they don't immediately appear on the group or go unanswered. Be patient, a lack of response is not personal or a reflection on you in any way. With so many posts some do get missed. Allow roughly 48 hours before re-posting with the words "2nd Post" in the subject line and simply provide the original message's number.

 

5) Off-topic but horse-related discussions: Our sister group ECHorsekeeping provides a place to discuss issues involving non-metabolic horses, general horse keeping practices, lameness, other equine health issues, alternative therapies and equine related philosophical debates.

Thanks for the information. Most of the info you have provided is how I assist my clients. The lab does breakdown the three components WSC ESC Starch. New to our line is the Equine Complete analysis that takes the core sample further to help with the mineral balancing. I share your group on my FB page to assist others....I am not your typical hay seller, rather I like to see myself helping and solving a problem, but mostly I am here for support. I will pull your chart up for further information. Thank you again. Hay...Girl! Pam Janssen

Prascend Experiences and Reporting to the FDA

Nancy C
 



*** Prascend Experiences 

Anxiety is running high over the claim that 1 to 3  mg  of Prascend (average size horse) will work as well as any dose of compounded pergolide. 

The value of this group lies heavily in members reporting their experiences. 

If you have any information to share about Prascend, either dosage related or side effects, good or bad, please send your story to one of the ECIR Group moderators: 


Lorna Cane <briars@...
Jaini Clougher <merlin5clougher@...
Nancy Collins <threecatfarm@...>. 
Eleanor Kellon VMD <drkellon@...

Your file will be uploaded to the Prascend Experiences File. If you prefer to not have your name used, the moderators will protect your identity. 

All members may read about fellow member experiences here




*** Reporting Adverse Reactions and Ineffective Drugs or Supplements to the FDA  

Failure to respond to the recommended dose is an adverse event that should be reported to FDA as a therapeutic failure.  Evidence of failure to respond can be comprised of observation of clinical signs (lack of change in symptoms) or through blood work.

Information on how to contact the FDA may be found here. 


Reports become part of the permanent Adverse Drug Experience records.

Re: Gift of pergoiled

Nancy C
 

Hi Sharon

Recommendations form here sre to use compound pergolide in caps 30 days at a time, stored in teh door of a fridge.  I would not count on the 2012 pergolide to be effective.

At 4 mg you are already above what BI calls the effective dose. (3 mg)  Hope you will shrae withus your test results.  See next post on reporting Prascend Experiences. 

Hope you can pretty please add your date of joining the group (an 2005) and your general location to your signature.

Thanks in advance for your contribution and help!

My question, is the compounded medicine still effective or stable? Thanks very much! SharonM

Hi Sylvie

Look for pots on  ECIR Facebook page dated 08.01.14 and 08.02.14. Link to page below.

I'm hoping I can sweet talk Kathleen into putting them here too because, even though Yahoo NEO is a pain, finding stuff on FB is worse, IME.

Kat, if you see this and can send to me I will upload here.

Monty's lab results

Suzanne Mansolilli
 

Hi Group,


I just posted Monty's lab results from Cornell.  Vet calculated G:I ratio at 1.46 and RISQI at 0.129 indicating uncompromised IR which I had suspected.  I've already recieved your advice on managing diet. He's sound enough to return to hand-walking 30 min/day. 


My question concerns the ACTH baseline at 461 pg/ml .  Vet prescribed 1mg/day Prascend and re-testing for ACTH in 4-6 weeks. What do you think?


She didn't mention anything about the Leptin result and how it ties into everything else.  I'd appreciate your thoughts.


Thanks,

Help with a search for "How to create a dry lot" Info

Livenwpeeps
 

I tried to do a search on how to create a dry lot but came up with hundreds of posts but could not find what I am looking for.  We now only have one horse - Doc - who is currently in a small dry lot.  We feel that since we don't want to get another horse at this point that the bigger pasture is just going to waste so why not make it into a dry lot so Doc could enjoy.  It's about an acre and a half with a mix of grass and weeds.  Can we use round up to kill everything?  Is there a better product or method to use?  Once the grass/weeds all turn brown and die how do we remove that?  Do we need to disc it under?  If someone could point me in the right direction that would be great!!

Soaking hay

Raelene Blakely <rb333@...>
 

 

 

Hopefully someone can help me with this as my pony has come down with laminitis.

I feed him his last hay at around 9pm at night.  How long can the hay be left wrung out from being soaked before being fed.

I’d like to have it all ready soaked and drained prior to 9pm but am not sure if it were drained at around 4pm if the hay would be safe to feed at 9pm.

The evening temperature is around 10 to 15 degrees celcius.

Thanks for any advice.

Kind regards,

Raelene.

Re: Baron and Prascend

Hi Diana,

>I no longer use either on my two Cushings ponies since discovering Lamalert Cushings Formula. All the benefits with none of side affects. After all Prascend is a depressant which was rubbish for a pony with Cushings related depression. Paddy now happier and more alert.

I've gone to their marketing site. They list data from human studies - in a manner of speaking- but nothing about equine studies.I've written asking for their equine studies.

When you say  "all  the benefits" do you mean blood work returning to safe range,as well as clinical symptoms?

We have found here that Vitex Agnus-Castus (Chastertree Berry),which is Lamalert Cushings, can improve clinical symptoms for some horses. Blood work, however, does not show improvement/correction of ACTH numbers,bringing them back into safe range.

How long have you been using only this product,and how much do you feed at a time.It appears to be very pricey to me,depending on the dosing suggestions.


Apologies for the way NEO  screws up my intended format.

Re: Baron and Prascend

Diana Davies
 

Basically Pergolide is a drug produced for humans but can be used for horses with Cushings etc. Here in the UK Pergolide was regularly used for this purpose but now that Prascend has been developed vets can no longer prescribe the human version which is a shame because it was much cheaper.
