ECIR | CaseHistory / ECIR Case History
*This is the location for uploading case histories and photos of horses with, or are likely to have PPID/IR * *For * Equines that do NOT have PPID or IR * go here ( ). *   Your equine's Case History is the most important step to be completed upon joining the ECIR List.  How you fill out and post your information directly impacts the speed and quality of help you get from the support team.    Even if you are a long time member, migrated from Yahoo, BEFORE UPLOADING TO THIS GROUP please read all the wiki pages marked with a red Asterisk. ( ) Please be considerate of the support team and other members. If your case history is on an older form that does not contain the IR Calculator Table please transfer all your information on to the new form ( ).  The uploading instructions within the new form will show you the new protocols for uploading.    We take the importance of accurate information very seriously. The information in our posts and case histories is of tremendous value to all our members and is also used for formal studies. It is extremely important that it be factual. To help protect the data and your privacy only members of the main ECIR Group are granted access to the Case History Group.  If you are concerned about privacy you need only give your first name and general location.  The use of pseudonyms to keep your equine professionals anonymous is encouraged.   Don't delay posting or updating your case history.  If you are missing information it can be added when you have it. The faster your case history is completed and uploaded, the faster you will receive support from the volunteers.    Please take the time to update your Case History.  A complete and up-to-date case history is invaluable when an equine emergency crops up. Accurate documentation of management changes, the equine's responses, blood work results and links to the equine's photo album not only helps the ECIR Group gain the trust and respect of science-based equine professionals but can be used by vets who are on the ground trying to help your horse. Your Case History is the best way to effectively monitor and illustrate the results in PPID and IR management changes.    Please leave all your information uploaded. When the time comes that you or your equine no longer need the ECIR List's advice, please leave your photos and case history folder intact. Your information will be used in the future to confirm or re-shape ECIR protocols and help other members learn.  This is the best way to “give back” to the ECIR for the help you and your horse have received.    Photos: Photos go in your equine's photo album that you create in the Case History Photo Section ( ).  Please be considerate of the Support Team. Read How to Make a Photo Album ( ) for the rules and follow the Naming Pattern ( ) for photos so they can quickly locate the photos they need to see.         Thank you for your cooperation,  -The ECIR Group Owners, Moderators & Support Team * *

ECIR | Hoof / ECHoof
*ECHoof is a resource to learn options for recovery from laminitis/founder.* Only one style of hoof care is endorsed: careful, thorough, and ongoing evaluation of each horse's situation. This includes external hoof shape and condition, position and condition of internal structures, and relevant aspects of diet, environment, housing and footing. Discussion can include all available options for any foot, but especially for the laminitic and foundered foot, with review and adjustment as needed. *Keep discussions of specific PPID and IR equines on the main ECIR Group.* Non-PPID and IR equine hoof related discussion takes place here. Go here ( ) to get started uploading your images.
