Mary- Have you called Haystack directly about the Teff pellets?  If not, their phone number is on their website.  One of the owners is a vet.  They've been very helpful with me.  If you've already tried this, I apologize for being redundant.  Also, where in the PNW are you?

Hi Mara,

You don't need to go back to 2006 but doing a current history from now going forward will help us help you.




Re: Metformin Added/Not Eating Food

Sherry Morse
 

Hi Jamie,

I think you have your answer - the metformin being given in his food is obviously not going to work for him.  I would recommend syringing with the milk of magnesia and then making sure you rinse his mouth and wipe off his lips as Cass recommended.  Given that he's a picky eater and he now thinks you poisoned him it may take him a bit to get back to eating his bucket feed on a regular basis, but he still should be getting the metformin regardless.

I have extra low carb hay, I lost my Cushing horse in February. I hay extra hay tested to be under 10% sugar and starch. If your in the Salem, Oregon area/or near please contact me.
I am more that willing to sell you a some to get you by. It's Valley Grass Mix. You can e-mail me @ quatzie_baby@... if your interested. 
Beet pulp and Haystack Low carb low fat pellets are also very helpful. Wishing you the best

Vetoryl

Kimberly
 

My DVM is requesting information on Vetoryl in laminitis cases that have trouble with Prascend.  Mouse, our horse has been successfully on Prascend since 2017 but we are currently fighting what is believed to be a hoof abcess.  He has been very lame on RF for over a week, DP medial side.  Using epson salt soaks, Ichtammol wrapped boot.  His hay is safe (we grow our own and test) and is on Stable 1, soaked beet pulp, flax.  magnesium.  We did blood work in 2017 and he was marginal IR.  Did blood work last week and are awaiting results.  Very concerned that if this abcess does not blow we will have laminitis develop.  Any help appreciated.

Re: Attn Lavinia - Hoof markups request please

Joy V
 

Thank you Lavinia, I'll get a body shot when I go this morning.  

I am hoping to get a big load of good hay this summer and will have that balanced.  I only have about 12 bales left of the hay I'm currently feeding, would it be worthwhile to have it balanced?

I will also talk to my vet about the pergolide and using capsules instead.

Thank you again, so much!!

Is there safe foraging in a Paradise Paddock?

Edited

Hello!  I'm moving my crew of 6 to a new property and planning for a track system based on the "paradise Paddock" methodology.  
-im in the planning phase. Part of my track could run through the forest, not much in the way of grass but lots of trees leaves and bushes that would I'm sure be consumed.   

Is this a safe idea for an IR horse, ....would a muzzle be required? 

I don’t have to build thru the woods, and apologies my question may seem a bit uneducated…..I just was not sure if any greenery is safe in the woods. 


 Thank you!

Hi Mary.  If I were you, I would still start a case history from where you are today and get it uploaded. Especially now that you have found a possible food source. If things change dramatically again and other issues pop up, your case history will be here, with current information and your new feeding regemin outlined. I don't doubt your horse is an outlier....all the more reason to get his/her current  case history established. I don't think any of us volunteers want you to remember or agonize over 16 years of success!!! But current state is important to record, track and trend.

Ronelle, there have been a lot of messages about these on the Horsekeeping group too. I just searched using "automatic" and there were a number of threads.

Well, I think I figured it out.  Teff hay pellets w/ R/S/S BP.
Will need to test the teff pellets, try to find Haystack, as they have flax & BP added.  Will need to find mineral balancing for the high iron.
There is no way I can recall the level of detail to properly recover my lost history of 16 years with the degree of detail & accuracy required.  I’m sorry.  I have a PPID Ir horse who has done amazingly well using this program… 
2006 on our signature is for real.

Hi Joy,

Glad to hear that Willie is doing better.

Thanks for adding the 2015 rads - it's helpful to see what the bony column situation is there. Good that you have rasping the toes back as that really needed to happen. Can you please get a photo of his entire body from the side so I can see how he's standing overall?

I can get something out for you in time for the Thur (May 19) trim.

Given that this is the time of the year when ACTH is at its lowest, a result of 26pg/ml is OK but we recommend getting (and keeping) it in the upper teens to low twenties to have really good control. As Willie is a QH, it's likely the ACTH is playing a part in keeping his insulin up higher than it should be. It looks like you are using compounded liquid pergolide. We don't recommend that as it can lose potency from the time you start that bottle to the time you finish it up. Pergolide in capsule from maintains its potency much better.

An insulin of 26uIu on soaked, low ESC+starch hay and no grass is not great, although it is below the threshold for acute laminitis. It's a huge improvement over his having been diabetic at this time last year tho. The emergency diet, which is basically what he's still on, is not meant to be used long term as the likelihood that it's sufficiently mineral balanced is almost nil. He really needs to have the minerals balanced to the hay analysis so that all the excesses and deficiencies can be addressed.

Thanks Dr Kellon. I have sent you an email regarding the study. I will be glad to participate.  

As I wrote in the email, I know Vandy will be a picky eater when it comes to the meds. Any advice on APF & what I need to get to help her in that way?  

Thanks again

Hi Sherry
 
Oh so many questions!!!
I will try very hard to answer them all. 
*I have not started her on any meds. My husband’s mother had been very sick this month & died this past Saturday. So I haven’t made time to get things going. 
*Yes. She is right at 14.2. 
*Yes. She’s was on Previcox from right after Christmas until a couple weeks ago. I took her off when I knew we were going to do another blood test. and I haven’t started it back. 
*I am not weighing her hay daily but I will start. She doesn’t eat much. More like 2-4 lbs each nite. 
*Hay is not being soaked.
The Bermuda (4.6%esc+starch) 
                   (Fe 137ppm) & 
Bahai (4.9%esc+starch)
            (Fe 100ppm)
have been tested & are both acceptable. I have not tested her Timothy hay. It is the Standlee compressed bales. 
*I need to balance again but I am going by previous tests that were actually higher than my current tests. I also balance to the grasses she eats, especially in the summer. her pastures were tested a few years ago. 
*She eats between 1-2lbs beet pulp/day - when she wants to eat it!  It is R/S/R - and rinsed again until the water is clear. 
*I am feeding her at least 4 lbs Standlee Timothy pellets. I’ve been cutting back on the  TC Senior to just 2 cups sprinkled on top of her supplements. She also gets at least 4 lbs TC Timothy Balance Cubes. 
It will be very hard to stop her Timothy pellets as she quids most all hay except alfalfa. But I am not feeding alfalfa. 
*X-rays-She has had her ski-tips forever. Like since her first X-rays were done almost 20 years ago!  Her toes have been brought back since those X-rays were taken. I am her farrier. She had her clogs on at that time & I was leaving them on a bit longer than usual because she was so comfortable in them. 
*I will go with Dr Kellons advice & start her on Pergolide & take her off grass before I start the Metformin. I sent her an email regarding the study. 

Thanks,
Mary & Vandy
