Re: How to Store Pergolide Once Blister Foil is opened?

Hi, can you tell me how you insert the capsule into a carrot or apple?   
I'm  interested in hoping to get the stable worker to agree to  place his 2  pills  inside a carrot. Do they have to use a knife? Thanks...

I've only tried soft treats so far...but he figures out pills are in there after a while..

Hi Natalie,

The easiest way to answer your question would be to call customer service and ask them about it.

Re: WAS UPDATES - Now increase pergolide without test?

 

Hi Deb,
How sensitive was he after previous increases?  Does he show a rise?  That might tell you how you want to go about increasing it.  If you dissolve the contents of one 5 mg capsule into 10ml of water, each 2 ml of fluid would contain 1 mg of pergolide.  You can use 5 ml to start as well but a larger quantity reduces any error.  You’ll need some small oral syringes.  I would probably put the 10 ml of water into a transparent container, anything from test tube to custard cup,  Add the pergolide powder and draw it up into the syringe a few times to mix it.  Then pull-up the 2 ml, or whatever amount you decide on, and squirt it into his mouth.

I work with my vet to have a supply of Prascend on hand for dosage adjustments. Once ACTH is in the desired range, I ask for a dosage adjustment of CP.

I wonder if Equishure is safe for the ones with metabolic issues. I’m so paranoid.

WAS UPDATES - Now increase pergolide without test?

Deb Walker
 

I am now getting myself concerned regarding Lavinia's comments on the Update thread for Scotty. She said if the pergolide dose was not enough to control seasonal rise, he would continue to sink. For us - that means we are done.

My vet cannot do the blood draw until Monday 9/27. Is there a safety or basis for increasing his pergolide now, before I have test and results? I use the capsules...currently 5 mg. Not sure how to increase without actually giving him 2 at a time (10 mg.)

Thoughts??

Re: seasonal rise complications part two- Laminitis?

Trisha DePietro
 

she does seem more comfortable in the styrofoam pads taped to her feet, but still not totally comfortable...What would be her trigger if this is laminitis superimposed onto arthritic joints...I feel like I can help the arthritis, but if I don't know the trigger for the laminitic "look" she has...I can't get to the cause of the issue and correct it. Her insulin is the best its ever been and her ACTH  is stable and unchanged since May 2021. She is eating fine, drinking and eliminating just fine.

Thanks Lavinia. I've got that visual firmly in my head. What I don't get is how you physically *see* the laminar wedge when looking at the hoof. What am I looking for to see it...just the longer than normal toe?

AVRIO Pharmacy - Change in capsules

Natalie Washburn
 

Hello,
I just received my first RX refill from AVRIO (after the switch over from PetHealth).  The capsules are TINY in comparison to what I've been receiving from PetHealth for the past 3-4 years.  I'm worried.  Has anyone else experienced this?  Are they using a different form of the drug or a different process that allows them to fit more inside a capsule?  
Please advise.
Thank you,

Re: Hay question low de - Invokana horse

Lecia Martin
 

Cass, Dr. Kellon  thanks for your response.   One of the reasons I am retesting is because the iron doesn't jive with the first cut this year and in the previous two years.  It generally has come back with 86- 96ppm.  After listening to Kathleen's presentation I think the first sample I sent in wasnt clean.  At least that's what I am hoping for.    As for the inverted calcium/phosphorus I am aware and I did work with our ag extension office here and treated accordingly because last years hay was also inverted although not as bad.  It apparently didn't work though.  I work with Scott at Mad Barn to balance my hay each year and will do so once I get the second sample back.   Dr. Kellon, as for the beet pulp,  Flyte really doesn't care for large amounts, the most I can get him to eat at once is 1 cup dry weight.  I will increase it slowly and see if he takes to it.  If not, would I use the same amount of soy hull pellets?  He does like those.  And Flame gets the exact same diet as Flyte, minus the Invokana.   Thanks

Laminox and vitamins safe

dr.kellylear@...
 

Hello again, 
sorry about all the questions… I was wondering with my mares current GI issues if it would be safe to still give her laminox and her vitamin supplements. I am worried about messing something else up. 

Thank you,

Re: Seasonal Rise and allergies

 

Hi, Vicky.
My Paint suffers from the veil, too. I give her 3 droppers of APF twice a day. Sorry I don't have the dropper in front of me. I don't stop until she's eating normally. It took her 3 weeks over the course of the latest dosage increase to start eating normally again. I probably went through a small bottle of APF. She also gets Jiaogulan twice a day. She isn't one to get dramatic relief from APF, but at least she kept eating about 80% of her daily hay.

Re: Uckele Absorb All

My mare who is not IR or PPID does have what we call runny butt syndrome AKA Free fecal water. We give her Equishure. It really helps. We started her off at the max dose for about 1-2 weeks and then tapered it back to a dose that maintains her. Might be an option

Uckele Absorb All

Angie
 

My PPID 18 year old gelding has had soft stool since June. No diet changes . We tried 6 weeks psyllium with no improvement. Then started him on Absorb All with low dose psyllium. Started slowly over 5 days. He’s getting the full dose now divided into two feedings and his stool is very loose and watery. Took him off it this morning. Anyone else have this problem?

Just for the record, I agree with everything Cass said.  Beet pulp would be beneficial for both horses. Start with 1 lb twice a day.

Re: Hay question low de

Lecia Martin
 

Hi Kirsten;    yes that is the hay analysis.  There are two on the PDF and it is the 2nd page marked 2nd cut mixed grass.   The first one was an experiment of my husbands.  As I mentioned in my first post I have sent in another sample of this hay because the iron seemed unusually high for this field.

Dr. K

You are correct...my error (old lady eyes).  Glucose was 77.  The blood work was performed in-house at the clinic, not at UC Davis.  Where can I find out what an MIRG of 5.5 indicates in relation to the other values?

Thank you,
