Re: Resting ACTH

 

Thanks Sherry,

I know he has been on the 2 mg dose for at least a year. Does that help at all?

Re: Insulin...200+ OMG!

You would think that they might automatically retest a result that unusual though?
I sent the request to my vet but perhaps I need to contact Cornell directly?

Hi Jodi,

I would go for the absolute minimum you can get away with for those as they're definitely high on the sugar/startch count.  Anything that starts the ingredient list as 'a decadent blend of sweet feed and molasses...' can't really be that good for anybody but they sure taste good. :-)

Re: Sparky & Ike Hoof Xrays - Path Forward?

He tends to be "ouchy" for the first 3-4 weeks after a trim, then gets more comfortable (not totally comfy, but better)....just in time for the 6-week trim.  It's a vicious cycle.  :(

They're not likely to be a problem unless feeding them in meal size amounts!

Beet-E-Bites Pill Pockets-SAFE?

Jennifer Boydstun
 

We were having trouble getting our boy to eat Pergolide in anything. I ordered the Beet-E-Bite pill pockets apple flavored and he gobbled up his medicine. Are they Safe? the starch seems high at 4.9%. 
They are tested by Equi-Analytical Labs and are 3.3% ESC (Simple sugars) and 4.9% Starch for a total value @ 8.2%. Recommendations for carbohydrate sensitive horses are 10% and under.

Re: Laminitis/Founder podcast episode

CORRECTION

There is one study that showed less severe laminitis in the fructan sepsis model when icing was started at first sign of laminitis https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24004323

As far as I know, no benefit has been shown in endocrinopathic laminitis when started after the horse is lame. It also has not been tested in horses with naturally occurring EMS.

Re: How many PPID horses still rideable

Bonnie
 

My Welsh pony is 21 years old, rideable and still driven with a pony cart. He was diagnosed PPID at age 12. His pergolide dose is 24 mg. There is no lack of energy: canters uphill to barn when called, sliding stop at the door.

I would suggest you have him examined by a lameness expert from one of your veterinary schools.

Alicia,

The only time cryotherapy works in any type of laminitis is if you start it before the insult, be that bacterial products, high insulin.

Re: How many PPID horses still rideable

ironic_acres@...
 

My PPID boy is ridden or worked with three times a week. Up until a month ago, we rode anywhere, anytime any type trail. He developed symptoms of Lymes and is currently in treatment for that. Just got permission from vet to start riding him slowly and on the flat again. We will be back at it tomorrow!

Re: Hidding Prascend

Maria Duran
 

Martha that´s a great idea. Obviously you have a lot of practice in administering medication. Logo was blessed to have you. I don´t trust much the caretakers giving it by srynge because they are not the most sensitive when handling animals because they have a lot of work and need to go fast over things. I fear Yayo will end up being head shy. He lets me touch his mouth from the inside, clean his gum ulcer, clean the inside of his nostrils and do as much as I like with great patience, I don´t want to lose that, but thanks a lot for the idea just in case it is needed.

Laura the prascend oreo made me laugh haha, I love it. Yes! vegan biscuits, that´s a wonderful idea, I will look into that.

I am happy because I don´t know how but he is already putting some weight on him, I believe it is the extra hay and the new concentrate with a source of energy he can utilize instead of so much starch. He has the most shinny coat of all horses because of the supplements despite his ugly long hair. Can´t wait to recieve the Prascend.

Thank you all for your help. I will keep you posted.

Hi Jodi, if he gets his pergolide in a tiny muffin at the same time he gets his low s/s meal, I think that would be ok.   Those muffins are pretty irresistible, I bet he doesn't even notice the capsule.   He's a good looking boy, by the way, I love his color and cute face.
