Fish Oil Gelcaps vs Flax

 

I am having a terrible time getting Marquise to accept his flax (he won’t do oils either.) Has anyone tried the fish oil gelcaps? If so, how many mg does he need daily? And is there anything specific I should look for on the ingredients? I’m exploring the Puritans Pride brand since I get my E from there and really like them.

Thanks so much

Sorry about that. The link has been fixed.

For some reason it cut off the last number of the case history album :(

Kim. Very sorry to hear of Shomee's passing. Thank you for donating Shomee's body to science. Its a  beautiful gift really, to all of us, as we strive to learn more and more each day from our horses. It's a beautiful memorial for him.

cabergoline and seasonal rise

LJ Friedman
 

you wrote;
   
-- The rule of thumb for pergolide effects is 3 weeks but there is some evidence that increases in dosage made during the seasonal rise may not show effects on ACTH until after the rise is over.


i want to be done with cabergoline.I don’t like that it cost me $10 a day, I don’t like that jesse gets a veil for a day, even though it’s minor, and I also don’t like that jesse is much more agitated with the injections

My goal was to test his levels this Friday, as I have increased his cabergoline  to 2.5 ML and changed every 10 days for some time ( 3 weeks). My thought was that if his levels were not in a good range I would immediately switch over to cp 20 mg.

 So, my confusion is should I even bother testing on Friday for levels, or should I just wait until December and bite the bullet and spend more for Cabergoline  until it’s time for the rise over to change back to compounded pergolide.?

Before reading this post, my thought was I would immediately change over if the levels were not being controlled now. I know this is unchartered territory’s so I would appreciate your thoughts and reasoning etc. so I can make a correct decision. Thank you

Kim, you and Shomee obviously had a wonderful life together. Thank you for thinking of how he might help more horses, even now. Wishing you the best in this sad time.

Re: feed question post laminitis

Cherie Bandrowski
 

Thank you, Dr. Kellon. Here are pictures I took with my cell phone of the radiographs.  The vet is coming out Thursday for updated blood tests.  I will see if I can also get copies of the labs taken in June rather than just a verbal, "she doesn't have IR". I went to the link on "Diagnosis of PPID and IR" so I would "be on the same page regarding testing and protocols" and got confused.  The title refers to PPID and IR but the content refers to PPID and EMS.  I read under treatment in the summary that IR is not a disease.  So I'm not sure what I should ask the vet for regarding testing.

Thank you Kirsten. I spoke to a vet today who has done cryotherapy and he agreed for me to send him the pics I took and see what he could do to help. Hes located quite far from me but sometimes comes here for dental work. When my vet calls me back with the test results I will ask him if he would be willing to learn how to do it. Its super frustrating because I'm at his mercy really. The travelling vet doesn't want to do it unless I have someone who can do post care treatment since he wont be able to, due to distance. So I'm still pushing and searching for help.

Yes they are in my province but Ontario is a big place. They are located a good 8 hours from me. I'm in a bit of a dead zone when it comes to feed, vet care, and competent farriers 🤦‍♀️

Re: Shomee passed this morning

 

Kim, I’m so sorry to learn of your loss today.  Thank you for sharing a bit of Shomee’s personality with us.  That’s very kind and generous of you to support veterinary research in that way.  I’m sure UC Davis appreciates your gift.  I’ll have you in my thoughts.  May your good memories prevail.

Hi Allison,

You could ask your vet to contact mine for more info on the cryotherapy.  I will private message her name and the name of her clinic to you to share with him, she is also a member here but probably has not seen your post.  It is definitely a veterinary procedure because sedation and pain control is needed but having watched the process several times it does not appear to be complicated.  The first time she did it we trailered to her (6hrs away), and spent 2 nights there so she could do a full sedation.  After that she said she was comfortable trying it at our home without laying him out on the ground if I could source the liquid N, so now she does it on her bi-annual visit to our area.

Movement always helped my boy's swollen sheath, too.  I think have a photo of it at it's worst in our album.  It was so swollen he was having trouble peeing.

Kim I'm so sorry to read this but thank you for thinking of others and wanting to see what can be learned from Shomee.

How strange!  I thought they were located in your province, with Ontario in their name.  Usually Aurelia is always so helpful.  Maybe something to do with your local stores?
