Re: Prascend how do you administer?

Also, I just learned that Prascend is doing a study and offering free testing. If anyone is interested ask your Vet about it.

Re: Prascend how do you administer?

I don't know why abcesses are common with this disease. Just one more fun thing that comes with it. This disease is so insidious. I liken it to Diabetes in humans. It affects everything in the body. I've tried many things for the rain rot. Baths with medicated shampoos, Equiderma, etc.. Now I'm usin...

Re: Prascend how do you administer?

Also, I have to worm him more often. He now has a high fecal egg count every time. Clearly his immune system is not functioning.

Re: Prascend how do you administer?

He's only been on 2 pills since March. I raised him 1/2 a pill at a time. I live in daily fear of laminitis... so far so good. He Has had 3 abcesses since Oct. Prior to that he'd had one abcess in his life due to a hot nail. I've barely been able to ride him since Oct. because of the abcesses. Then ...

Re: Prascend how do you administer?

musical comedy - He was on the Prascend when he lost his appetite. His ACTH had gone up to the low 60's and we tried to raise his dose to 1 1/2. He stopped eating so we dropped it back to one. Later, we tried again to raise the dose and he did it again. So back to one pill again. Now, I have no choi...

Re: Prascend how do you administer?

musical comedy - I started 2 yrs ago with the compounded version and it worked very well. Then I got the second batch and I believe it was bad. He soon started to have problems and his ACTH started to rise. A different Vet strongly urged me to switch to Prascend and I did. He believes this is not a ...

Re: Prascend how do you administer?

Melody - My horse showed a dramatic turnaround in 60 days after starting pergolide. The medicine is too important and expensive for me to risk dropping it in the feed pan. I feed it by hand. Some horses don't mind the taste, but many hate it. And it can give them a sour stomach. Mine will frequently...

Re: white line disease

I think I will contact a nutritionist because this does worry me. I have never overfed grains to her. I never wanted her fat or to grow too fast. She has been on Enrich Plus (very few calories- mainly vitamins & minerals) all her life and Purina 12/12 added for minerals. My Vet suggested this fo...

I will definitely let everyone know when articles come out. After much urging from several people she has decided to attend the USDF Convention to pick up her medal in person. I have to tell a funny story that may not make it into a magazine.... This horse of hers is such a wonderful, solid citizen....

Senior rider earning her USDF Gold Medal

My dear friend Rita whom I've been riding with for several years has earned her Gold Medal! Keep an eye out in USDF Connection and the Chronicle for articles about her. At the time she earned it she was the oldest rider EVER to achieve this! 73 yrs young!! She trained her German Riding Pony up from ...

Thank you for your suggestions! Since I have been in a drought situation here the problem seems to be under control.

Very Interesting myleetlepony - Her natural way of moving has been disturbed for some time due to a LF lameness. The worst white line foot right now is the RH. That could be a part of the equation. I've decided I need a fresh pair of eyes on her and have a new Vet coming Monday. He's a lameness spec...

Idaho is sounding pretty good to me right now :) We've had a multitude of storms in the past week which is not helping with this. It's definitely white line disease which is leading to abcesses.

As far as diet goes, she's on Enrich Plus which is basically vitamins and minerals. And 12/12 mineral supplement. She's been on these for over a year now. I S...
