Hi Jonna,

Perfect!  Do you have any current x-rays or hoof pictures to share?  The 2018 x-ray is bad, but we have seen worse here.

Hi Becky,

So sorry you lost Thunder and Soozee.  For them if you want to leave their CH folders in place you can go to the main folder: https://ecir.groups.io/g/CaseHistory/files/Becky%20and%20Frodo%20-Thunder%20-%20Soozee and then click on the update button for each of their folders (it's the icon that's a square with a pen in it) and then in the description box that opens just add a note that they've passed and the approximate date.

Going to look at the Frodo updates now and will let you know if I have any insights after I've read everything over.

Thank you all. I thought from other posts that this time would be more indicative to test a horse which is perhaps in the very early stages of cushings “and perhaps do a stim. Test”. I was under the impression that during the Winter that early PPID was easier to miss and now lends more sensitivity to testing. I don’t think he has it, and I sure hope not, but I don’t want to avoid knowing. The study Dr Kellon referred us to does show declined favorability during this seasonal period for the Stim test but the bottom line was the TSH test worked in each month. I shared the study with my vet and will maybe just do the ACTH. Shakespeare is 15.
I will begin a photo album on our site which is more organized and precise than the google congloberation…!

Re: script laminitis conference

Deborah Lesdalons
 

Good morning,

Many thanks for your mail. My daughter 4th year veterinary student will be attending. I have spoken to my vets and farrier, all of whom are interested, they are just worried that their English isn't good enough to follow. Will their be a script of what each speaker says on the bottom of the screen for the non English-speaking attendees, which would help somewhat? (We are not acquainted with Zoom perhaps it's automatic?)
Many thanks,

Deborah.

Objet: [Special] [ECIR] ECIR Group 2021 NO Laminitis! Conference -- Early Bird Expiring soon!

Early Bird pricing expires next Saturday, 07.31.21, midnight EDT.

Genetics and Exercise — two exciting topics that have come up recently in conversation here, almost every day. Based on comments when registering, understanding the impact of each on EMS has attendees excited to learn more. Each of these two featured speakers have dedicated their focus to these two topics. Have a look:

Shannon Pratt Phillips, MS, PhD, PAS — On Exercise

* The Effect of Exercise on Glucose Metabolism and Insulin Sensitivity in the Horse . This presentation will focus on the basic science of glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity, and how exercise — both acute (e.g., a one-time exercise bout) and chronic exercise (e.g., exercise conditioning) — affects it. It will summarize relevant research in this field, and will provide up-to-date information for horse owners and veterinarians about the importance of exercise for their horses.
* Strategies for Using Exercise as Part of Dietary Management for Overweight and/or Insulin Resistant Horses . This presentation will be a more practical guide for increasing exercise in our horses and how the combination of dietary restriction and exercise can have an impact on weight-loss efforts and glucose metabolism.

Elaine Norton, DVM, MS, PhD, DACVIM-LA — On Genetics

* The Genetics of EMS. We have suspected for over a decade that genetics contributes to Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS). However, we are just now discovering the full impact of genetics on this syndrome. This talk will focus on the heritability of EMS, as well as identified regions of the genome impacting this disease.
* The Impact of Genetics on Height and Insulin Dysregulation in Welsh Ponies. Ponies have unique metabolic profiles and are at the highest risk of developing Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS). However, we have yet to determine why ponies have such a unique metabolic profile. This talk will focus on a recently identified genetic variant affecting both height and insulin dysregulation in a population of Welsh ponies.
Just 17 days until the NO Laminitis! Conference opens. Just 16 days until the Conference Orientation hour from your hosts, Cindy and Sherry, on Thursday night.

Full schedule here: https://www.nolaminitis.org/conference-schedule.php

When: The weekend of August 13 - 15, 2021.

Frodo - Radiographs, Iron Panel Results - in Flare-Up

rebecca.ann.crowe@...
 

Hello,
It has been a while since I have updated or needed some support. Unfortunately, Frodo is in the midst of a laminitis flare-up and has been terribly lame for four weeks. The laminitic episode started after we began a new supplement. It may be coincidental, but I wanted to note it (supplement was immediately removed from his diet).

I have updated his case history and noted various changes since the last update, particularly in the comments. The most recent hay analysis documents are also uploaded.

The vet was also out recently, and we checked for Lyme disease and a KSU Iron Panel. I also wish we would have done a ACTH and Insulin to see how they compare to 2019. Radiographs of his front feet were taken. I will update hoof and body pictures in the next day or so.

I would love support with the following:
  1. KSU Iron Panel interpretation - noted in my case history, but I will upload actual document as well - my vet only looked at the individual tests, but in reading about Dr. Kellon's work on iron overload, it seems there is more to it. 
  2. X-ray mark-ups
  3. Other ideas welcomed!
As a side note, we have lost two of our horses (Thunder and Soozee) in the past year or so to non-hoof/IR/PPID causes. Do I need to update their files to note that?

Many thanks!
Becky

Hi Rachel,

Good job on getting the posting part figured out.

I'll get you something tomorrow so you have it to share with the trimmer on Sat.

Re: Help with Hoof Evaluation Response to Lavinia.

Rachel Fazio
 
Edited

Hi all - I am a member since 2016, but this is my first post, about my horse Ty's hooves - as we just changed trimmers - I originally posted on the ECIRHoof page - but Lavinia asked that I respond to her on the ECIR main page.  So here is my response.

Thanks,

Rachel

Hi Lavinia - thanks so much for your reply, sorry I am still trying to navigate posting messages.  Now that I think I have figured out how to post via the web, I think I will do so.  Yes, Ty has been IR probably for a long while, but we first figured it out in 2016 shortly before I found this site and started taking Dr. Kellon's classes.  We manage him mostly on symptoms - fat deposits over eyes, at tail head and sheath.  During ACTH rise he can get footsore, he also gets lethargic and rubs his head a lot (not sure if that is a PPID symptom) but so far overt laminitis has not been our experience (thank goodness) and hopefully, that trend will hold.  We are very strict with his diet, but during fall the last couple of years we are soaking even low sugar hay (6% ESC less than 1% starch) just to try to keep him as close to normal as possible. - so seems like something more is going on.  I know that cortisol rhythm testing is not a valid PPID test - unfortunately, we have very limited access to veterinary care up here - and our vet is reluctant to do the Cornell test - but I will keep working on him.  Otherwise, we would have to drive at least an hour, which I think would throw off the results anyway.

Ty just turned 26 in May.

If you can do some markups I would appreciate it - his hooves are hard as granite and I think the new trimmer is having a difficult time, but I would appreciate any guidance so I can at least start to have a conversation with her.  She hasn't done anything to the soles on previous trims - but she did trim back the frogs the first trim, this is what has grown back since then and I have asked her not to trim them anymore.

Hopefully, you will receive this reply - but I will also cut and paste and send it out via ECIR main - with Re: Help with Hoof Evaluation Response to Lavinia.

Thanks again,

Rachel

Re: Diet/Supplement Questions for Cupcake (Alison) + recommended blood work + Prascend dose

Sherry Morse
 

Hi Rebecca,

Normal horses do not eat 24/7 even if they have access to food at all times. However, one of the issues with many IR horses is that they have elevated Leptin so they don't have an off switch when it comes to eating.  Letting this sort of horse eat free choice will result in them remaining fat and continuing to have elevated insulin in a never ending cycle until something is changed (which is usually the amount of hay fed and restrictions in feeding). 

If Cupcake is taking a full 24 hours to eat her hay ration that's fine as long as the amount she's fed is still what she should be eating and not free choice.

If the vet is coming in the next few days you can test ACTH, you just need to be cognizant of the rise and that there is an adjustment to be made for that.  The fact that you're seeing positive improvements points to IR being the main issue and the diet changes helping with that.





Re: Less energy

Sherry Morse
 

Hi Jennifer,

To me he looks less "lumpy" in the hind end than he did in the pictures you posted last week. Have you noticed a change there as well?  And any change in his crest?




Re: Supplements and hay thread

Sherry Morse
 

Hi KC,

You will find most of the information you need in your welcome message: https://ecir.groups.io/g/main/message/264011.  Once you have had your hay tested you can contact one of the people who are trained to help with mineral balancing for assistance: https://ecir.groups.io/g/main/files/6%20Diet%20Balancing/HAY%20BALANCING-1.pdf

Nancy,

How long are you soaking the cubes? Hot or cold water? Hay pieces will soak up quite a bit of water and become soft but it takes a while.

I agree it would be a fantastic thing to have but advertising it is premature. It hasn't been proven to work or be reliable yet. I certainly hope they are not accepting money/orders yet but it wouldn't be the first time a possibly bogus test method was fostered on horse owners. EquiSeq is a good example.

Haylage?

Caroline
 

Is there any intrinsic reason haylage is not as suitable as hay for EMS types?  I'm getting my hay cut next week and can get it wrapped at around 65% moisture to make haylage - or risk the weather and leave it drying another few days and make hay.  Obviously the base grass be the same so is there a reason not to wrap?  I will be feeding Evan, EMS type that reacts on grass and several other fat ponies, one of whom is diagnosed as EMS and has had laminitis

Thanks
