This is a very large group of horse owners with the potential for having a large database of information.  Well-documented scientific data (your case history) helps the ECIR Group gain the trust of science-based equine professionals and shows patterns that shape the protocols that helps so many PPID and IR horses and owners. Sharing your information is the best way to thank the ECIR Group's volunteers for their help. Please take the time to add or update your Case History.




For faster and more relevant answers, please include a link to your case history, photos etc, in your messages – to properly answer any questions the volunteers need to see a case history for your horse.




1. NEW Case Histories should now be posted in ECHistory8.


2. Full instructions and templates can be found in the main files in the folder 
9 Case Histories


3. Keep your case history safe! Avoid losing your information by following the simple instructions and tricks for posting and updating case histories in the document

“Warning for Naming Folders”.   


3. If you are updating an old Case History but there is no longer enough space on older history groups, feel free to move your information to ECHistory8.



4. Photos of any sort - this includes photos of text such as lab reports - should be posted in the PHOTOS SECTION of the ECHistory Group where your case history is posted.   Links to ECIR Case History Sites


If you had or have to move your Case History, you don't need to move your photos. Just be sure a link to them is posted in both your case history and your message signature.


As you can appreciate, there are just too many places information can be.  It is the responsibility of the uploader to note the urls and provide links whenever seeking advice from the volunteers. If you are unsure how to do this see the document "How to Make, Save and Post Signatures and Links". 


5.  Please check if you can add any information to the various Databases and Polls. Often overlooked, these tools gather the information Dr. Kellon needs to make and update the protocols that the group uses to help PPID and IR horses.   

For Neo Yahoo users, buttons/links to these locations can be found just under the any of the group's cover photos.
