24 year old Dutch Warmblood with Cushings, pelleted diet only

northbeachdogs@...
 

Hi Everyone,

Im new to the group. My horse was diagnosed with Cushings about 5 years ago and it has been quite the challenge keeping him healthy. He's had several teeth removed over the last 7 years and one root infection created a oral nasal fistula. This went undiagnosed for two years after the tooth was removed. The poor guy had nasal discharge and a foul smell coming from his nostril. Countless vet visits only led to putting him on antibiotics for a sinus infection. I finally had enough and took him to Davis to find out what was going on with him. They found the small fistula and it was compacted with hay, which was rotting and creating that foul smell and discharge. So the vet ordered no more hay and to put him on Stable mix diet. I came on this site and searched your conversations for info on the Elk Grove stable mix diet, which hes been eating for the past 8 months or so. Im freaking out since it looks like this mix is too high in sugars and should not be given to a horse with Cushings. Does anyone have any recommendations for a balanced pelleted diet that would be safe for him to eat? We live in the Bay area and he currently eats 4 large scoops of EG stable mix, one pill a day of prascend, and california trace minerals. He's been barefoot for the first time in his life for the past year, which has been a slow progress. He easily gets thrush, but after adding the trace minerals and taking the shoes off he seems to be clear of that now. I can go on and on about different health ailments we have gone through, but right now Im just looking for some guidance on a daily feed for the poor guy. Im very frustrated because it seems Im steered down the wrong path after EVERY vet visit. After reading some posts on here about EG and Cushings horses, Why would the vet recommend EG to a horse with Cushings? 


Thanks to you all for any information or help you can provide. Sorry if I seem frustrated.

Hi, Sue - I am so glad Princess is feeling better.  She is very lucky to have you (and your husband!) in her camp.

I just want to second Lavinia's information about Previcox (and the rest of the excellent information about the alfalfa, minocycline etc).  The correct dose for a horse is .045 mg per lb body weight; for Princess at 770 lbs, that would be 34.65 mg, or just over a tenth of a 227 mg tablet.  Half a tablet is over 3 times the recommended dose; a quarter of a tablet is 1.6 times the recommended dose.  The correct dose for her would be half of a 57 mg tablet.

This is a common problem with using Previcox, the dog formulation of firocoxib, for horses. The dose of firocoxib for dogs is 2.27 mgs per pound body weight.  That is fifty times the dose that is suitable for a horse, so you can see where overdosing can creep in.  The Previcox dose for Princess should be exactly the same dose one would give to a small standard dachshund - weird, but true.  Please toss the 227 mg tabs, or keep them for your dogs, and get some 57 mg tabs for her, using half of one of those tabs.  Check with your vet, of course (especially don't use them on your dogs without clearing it with the vet first), but you will find that is the correct dose.


Big hugs to you and Princess,

Hi Kathy,

Hopefulky I can clarify

....."25% of you mare's diet is untested hay (unsoaked) and from what I understand from your post your gelding is fed the same hay (soaked) and it is at least 50% of his diet and soon to be 100% (?)."....

Sorry for the confusion. Firstly, my mare: she is doing well on the ODTBC as >75% of her diet (the 5 lbs/days is the maximum; it is some of last years first cut that is quite poor quality mixed grass hay). She just nibbles on it throughout the day and the most she gets is 5 lbs, but usually less. With the 15-lbs of ODTBC/day, she is more than adequately meeting her 1-2% body weight in forage that, as Ive read many times, as ODTBC is a completely balanced diet in and unto itself (with addition if iodized salt/flax/VitE). Whatever she is getting from the nibbles of long stem hay in the haynet is minimal. Yes, I'd love to know exactly whats in the 5-lbs a day of hay she eats but its just not practical at this point in time for me to buy small lots of hays and have each analyzed at $56/a pop when im using so little.

However, when my gelding stabilizes from his latest insulin crisis, which is hopefully very soon, I will need to procure a large load of analyzed hay to feed the him, the one who gained too much weight on ODTBC when they comprised the bulk of his diet (thru winter into spring). He is in moderate to heavy work but the cubes still add too much weight now that the need for extra calories for winter warmth has abated (meaning, he was on 20-lbs ODTBC plus free choice analyzed hay all winter living out clipped & blanketed. He maintained perfect weight & insulin levels thru winter. In spring i dropped the cubes to 15-lbs, then 10-lbs, along with free choice analyzed hay and he still gained weight. I did not see how *much* weight he had gained until he got into an insulin crisis beginning of this month when theoretically he should not have. Extensive testing only showed iron overload that is definitely an old problem from eating god only knows what in the eight years before his IR diagnosis.

My mare & gelding live on different farms and do not eat the same hay. He is eating a 2015 first cut mixed grass that is grown/baled by the farm where he is boarded. I feed the hay they have bc, well, its part of the board i pay for. In the past the same fields & cut have analyzed well below 8% ESC+starch. In the Northeast it has been a difficult season for first cuts of hay due to an early drought. Loads have been small. Regardless, my gelding got into an insulin crisis in early June and went on the Emergency Diet (only soaked grass hay, nothing else, no cubes). He was indeed footsore for a few days. Once that ended i re-introduced the iodized salt, vit E oil, and flax slowly and watched for signs of hoof soreness returning. It did not. A few more days passed and his wild frantic behavior began to mellow out--thats when I know his insulin is back down into his "normal" (mid 20s uU/dL). I could draw blood now to be sure he's in good shape but as we are entering the weekend i will wait until Monday for a fresher blood sample. It wont hurt him to have a few more days of soaked hay. With confirmation of blood results showing a good insulin level has been acheived, I will then take him off the soaked hay and gradually switch over to something unsoaked that has been analyzed. If the farm where he boards does not have a long-term supply that is practical to analyze, then I will buy my own hay. Either way the gelding (and mare) will go onto an analyzed hay & balanced diet. I choose to keep the mare on cubes bc she maintains weight well on them, theyre easy to buy, transport, and store at my home barn where my mare lives.

....." I don't understand what you mean when you say you will analyze his hay and get him a custom supplement when the time comes? What time is that? ".....

that time is when his insulin has returned to his "normal", as I stated above, i believe it already has but being thorough and bc i can, I will send a blood sample for insulin test to confirm. Then he will wean off the soaked hay and onto something analyzed and I will definitely balance his vit/min supp to his hay bc he is having trouble staying controlled, which may or may not be the iron overload issue.

....."Addressing the iron overload issues starts with a hay analysis. I, also, think it would be prudent to know what the 5#'s of hay is contributing to you mare's diet or if you could feed her daily ration in this now tested hay."....

of course, i agree completely! The mare is not iron overloaded at present and Ill kill two birds with one stone by locating an abundant hay source that i can analyze and feed both horses (although I will opt to keep the mare on ODTBC bc shes doing very well on current diet plan. I dont think its necessarily better to have her on long-stem hay if doing fine on the cubes. Her routine insulin checks have been staticly "normal" for her (20s uU/dL)
Maybe your confusion is from why I dont already have an analyzed hay in use--thats bc of the crappy spring weather we've had, sparse hay supplies, and waiting to see where I can most likely find a consistent & abundant hay source. My local suppliers are bringing in hay daily so likely next week if my geldings blood results are good Ill decide on my best hay option & have it analyzed.

Hope this clears things up. Sorry not proofed or edited--long day!

Sue, your husband is a saint as well. Princess is beyond lucky.

That dose of Previcox (canine formulation of firocoxib) is a HUGE overdose. It is appropriate for an approximately 2500lb horse and I don't believe Princess is anywhere near that size. Even 1/4 of that pill is STILL overdosing for her size. Previcox does have the potential for serious side effects, just like any other NSAID does, esp when it is overdosed. Please have a read here:

http://www.fda.gov/downloads/AnimalVeterinary/Products/ApprovedAnimalDrugProducts/DrugLabels/UCM050387.pdf

Totally understand giving minocycline - it is related to doxycycline and is safe to use in IR horses.

Upping the alfalfa could be problematic as Princess has shown herself to be quite sensitive to feed ingredients. Alfalfa is known to make many IR horses footsore so it doesn't seem to be the best choice here. Plus, it will throw off your calcium/phosphorus ratios as alfalfa is quite high in calcium. She is likely losing weight because of pain - she needs more total calories rather than just upping an arbitrary ingredient. Pain can cause an individual to need double the calories (or more) to maintain condition. If you need to add protein, whey protein isolate would be a better choice. If this was my girl, I'd ask one of the hay gurus or Dr. Kellon to help you tweak her diet so as to keep it balanced and keep it providing all the proper nutrients she needs to heal.

Sounds like they did a good job of getting as much infectino out as was possible and opening access areas to the rest. The Regional Limb Perfusion is used to get the infection under control in cases where oral meds do not work. It is very difficult to get enough antibiotic into infected hoof areas any other way. More info on it in the files here:

Hi Kathy, 

....."Not all of us can balance our hay with a custom supplement so I am glad that there are other products that I can offer an owner to balance their horse's diet.  I think of them as another tool in the diet balancing process and not an "all-purpose supp for fatties".".....


>>> my apologies if my statement sounded facetious -- it was not meant to be.  Yes, I agree the concentrated 30% supps are better than nothing for those of us that cannot feed fortified grain!  And by "fatties" I should have said "easy-keepers".  Again, my apologies.


....."So if I am understanding your post your mare was IR and uncontrolled because she was early PPID.  Are you still soaking her hay?  Is she on a custom supplement to balance her hay? Sorry, I am not understanding where you are at with your diet for her......what is the ESC + Starch in her current hay?".....

>>> My mare is on 15 lbs/day ODTBC and roughly 5lbs/day mixed grass hay in a small mesh haynet (unsoaked).  The cubes are spread around her drylot so she can "graze" and the crumbs that are too small to toss are used as the carrier for iodized salt (1oz), ground flax (1oz), and VitE 2500IU/day.  If she works hard (10 miles+) she gets a handful of soaked cubes 1 hr after work with a scoop of electrolytes (Pro-lyte, by Uckele). 

Bc the bulk of her diet is the balanced cubes, I do not need to balance the relatively small amt of grass hay she consumes (as I understand from previous posts). 

Hopefully this answers your questions. 

As an aside, my IR gelding, who I recently discovered is iron overloaded and having insulin spikes despite tight diet and exercise, is on soaked hay still as Emergency Diet.  He is out of the sore foot phase thank goodness and starting to lose weight and act sane again (historically abrupt behavior changes are his only hyperinsulinemic symptom).  It appears he gains too much weight on the ODTBC when they compose >50% of his diet so he will have to have analyzed hay and a customized supp balanced to the hay when the time comes.  I plan to retest his insulin in approximately 1 week, although Im pretty sure it is already down due to his settled mental behavior.  Because of his iron overload problem, his diet will have to be ultra-tightly balanced if there's any hope of ever getting the dang iron out of his system (again, as i've been told via previous posts).

hi,
Princess is doing good today her front feed are under her most of the time but when she lays down and gets up she has them out some but not like she did before.. YEA... the vet and blacksmith called and was worried she would be sorer today but shes a trooper and doing better then she was before they worked on her.. shes on the Isoxsuprine  20 mg and its for the for I think its 50 days. or until I run out. I have 1000 tabs.. the vet is going to come back out but would like to give princess a little more time to see how things go.. and she is not on the j-herb right now. I was giving her bute so there no j-herb in her system.
the infection. her hoof is taken off in the front close to the  bone and shes getting it washed out with meds and then packed with some pill crush up and packed in to help kill and work into all the little spots.
the provicox is 227 I'm not sure what that means? she gets that 1/2 for 7 days and then 1/4 till they run out I have 10 tab's.. we hope she will be out of pain before we use all of them. shes using it for pain because she does not want her on bute.. 
about the minocycline, that was just a little extra safety thing we wanted to do. when he opened her hoof up we did hit blood between the infection  and with the one being so close to the bone. if it did get to the bone before we got it, it would give her that little extra fighting power. , 
the protein. she is only getting 1 pound of standlee alfalfa pellets a day total she was getting 1/2 pound so she/we did not up it much. we need to add a little more for her she losing her body tone and tiring to get her to put some weight back on her she shes not so skinny.. she has hay 24/7 and timothy cubes most of the day. we are feeding the other back field and yes shes on a balanced diet but the back field was low in protein it might be a little off by adding 1/2 pound more of alfalfa.
the leg perfusion we are going to do that but she does not want to do that now until we get the infection under control. she seen were it was done and it pushed the infection in the leg and made thing worse..
the x-rays are only before the hoofs were done.. sorry
The blacksmith is coming out friday and I'm going to try and get photos of her up warped. should be able to... I'll post then too.. 
My husband came home from work on wednesday when I had everyone her working on her. the drive was packed. I even had the neighbor come over to make sure everything was ok. 4 big trucks and a x-ray van..  my husband came in the barn when I was holding princess, she got very jumpy when I left her so I had to stay with her, he handed me the credit card and said love you hope this works, I'm home if you need me... said hi to everyone.. never asked how much it cost ! sill hasn't.. hes just happy to see her doing better... gotta love him.... 
never would of thought the blacksmith does take plastic..
keep you posted....

Hi Sue,

Thanks for giving us an update. Glad that things seem to be moving in a better direction for Princess. Will be on the lookout for the latest xrays. Were any done after all the trimming and clogs were applied? It's a good thing that the vet took samples of the infection to culture to make sure it is being addressed with the correct medications.

Just a few thoughts for you to ponder.

How long is she supposed to be on the Isoxsuprine? It has been found to not be very effective when used orally in horses. The J-herb you were using(?) has much better vaso-dilating properties. IF she is on J-herb, shouldn't use it along with Previcox. What is the actual milligrams of the Previcox pill you are using half of?

Nothing applied to the sole will get into her blood to help infection as there is no blood supply anywhere near that area. All the blood vessels are tightly hugging the coffin bone and in the digital cushion. If needed, Lower Limb Perfusion would be one thing that could be done. Another is using sterile maggots.

As far as her diet is concerned, I thought Princess was on a mineral balanced diet? If so, then she has no need for any extra protein. Unfortunately, most vets do not understand that the amount of protein needed  is not based on the percent protein of the feeds but on the actual amount in grams that is being ingested. In an IR horse, excess protein can be a lamintis trigger so not a situation of "more can't hurt".

Sue, with your care Princess will outlive most of us. She is indeed a "Princess" and so incredibly lucky to have you as her person.

There is a picture of him from last summer in my album,don't want him getting that thin again. So far today has been one of his best days pain wise he's standing normal he's a 2 on the pain score.

I know not to vaccinate a sick horse. Don't understand why the local vets are pushing this vaccine,vet that was out for boarded horse knows good and well both my horses have been sick with lyme dease. 

Glad i came on here to ask for advice about this vaccine,results from giving it to both horses could of been less the good.

Hi Kerry,

" I would much rather acheive a tight vit/mineral balance with a custom supp blended to augment my hay, rather than blindly hoping im doing the right thing by using an 'all-purpose' supp for fatties like the 30% supps now avail"


Not sure if you are currently or have balanced your hay in the past, but these dense feed supplements...i...e..TC 30%  come in handy in some diet balancing situations.  In some cases, they can help provide additional protein, calcium, magnesium and contribute copper and zinc and work as palatable feed base for additional minerals that may be needed based on the hay profile.   Not all of us can balance our hay with a custom supplement so I am glad that there are other products that I can offer an owner to balance their horse's diet.  I think of them as another tool in the diet balancing process and not an "all-purpose supp for fatties".   

So if I am understanding your post your mare was IR and uncontrolled because she was early PPID.  Are you still soaking her hay?  Is she on a custom supplement to balance her hay? Sorry, I am not understanding where you are at with your diet for her......what is the ESC + Starch in her current hay?  You can just write it in a post if you CH is unavailable.

Re: Dog Lyme Vaccine For Horses??

Hi Corinne,

Kerry's given you a lot of good information. I just want to piggyback on her response.

You never vaccinate a sick individual (horse, dog, person, whatever) for anything. All vaccines are labeled to only be used in healthy individuals. It doesn't matter what they are ill from or what you would be vaccinating for.

Vaccinating for Lyme in an individual that already has the disease is dangerous - there have been severe reactions recorded.

Re: Triple Crown 30 -- anyone else having problems with it?

 

Hi all,

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the TC Lite's NSC is not "guaranteed" in each bag, and can vary tremendously from batch to batch (ask me how I know). 

The TC 30, however, *is* guaranteed to be 9.8% in each batch, as it's made in one plant with consistent testing.

That doesn't mean that the TC 30 won't be too high for some horses, especially if feeding 1 lb. of it. As a ¼ - ½ cup "taste tempter", I've had no problems.

Don't forget to add up the Selenium in these products, if you are feeding additional Selenium.

TC has a good chart with some of this explained in footnotes about the range of sugars and starch that can occur across products.

....."What was/is the ESC + Starch in the hay you were/are feeding at the time when you experienced these crises?".....

hi Kathy,
These occurrences were last year when my mare was severely IR but not yet diagnosed PPID. This is the scenario I mentioned in another recent post/topic whereby I could not get any of my local vets to believe my mare was in fact early PPID (no clinical symptoms, borderline 36.6 ACTH, Cornell), etc until I found she was repeatedly hyperglycemic (in retrospect I believe commercial labs I was using were showing falsely lowered glucose results bc of the collection technique all during the time of mare's diet/exercise refractory IR (late summer '14). All last summer my mare was competing heavily (eventing) & was on soaked grass hay (roughly 8.0% *before* soak) and never more than 7.5% esc+starch bagged/chopped forage (and I weighed every serving down to the ounce!) yet she was still having severe insulin swings due to her as-yet-unknown PPID. Early on during the Summer of Hell as I now call it, my vet advised to add one of the 1-lb all-around 30% protein supps (I tried TC, Poulin's, and McCauley's) and each time had a terrible insulin spike. My mare is one of the cursed ones that cannot handle any fats, or a single bite of grass, any kind of grain product, etc and that is true still today, even with IR well-controlled on pergolide. Im way too gunshy to try one of the products now, and its a moot point anyway, because I would much rather acheive a tight vit/mineral balance with a custom supp blended to augment my hay, rather than blindly hoping im doing the right thing by using an 'all-purpose' supp for fatties like the 30% supps now avail

Hopefully that answers your question. Unfortunately Neo erased my painstakingly detailed CH on my mare and Ive yet to update & repost it.

Do you know what the sugar value is?
The starch value?
That could give you a better idea of how much of a chance you want to take,on an already- sore horse.

Hi 

I'am not going to give the lyme vaccine to jasper not worth the risk of losing him to a severe reaction. Like you said a round of doxy takes care of the lyme dease. Hopefully this 4 months of treatment will keep him good for a while. 

Think the older gelding has chronic lyme dease it's been never ending for him already has relapsed 6 times  this spring. 

My dogs have never had issues with spring vaccination,they both did fine this spring after being vaccinated.
