    I have a 10 year old Appendix that was nerved 11 months ago. I found the most informative moment of the decision making process to be when I spoke with the surgeon about the neurectomy and asked him...

    I can throw the 150mg tablets into his grain whole and he eats them right up. He won't eat the 300 mg whole, nor will he eat ranitidine crushed. He got keen on those methods and protested. I know you...

    FWIW, I've had great luck with ranitidine for preventing my horse's ulcers from returning (well, ulcer symptoms). After the initial scope/treat/re-scope 2-3 years ago his symptoms kept returning on...

    A 220 count bottle of 150mg ranitidine is $10 at Walmart (equate brand). Cheapest form of ranitidine I've found. Their price hasn't changed in the 1 year I've been buying it there. No script needed.

    A sudden increase in stopping at fences was the first sign of my horse's navicular disease, even before any head bobbing lameness showed up. That was only something I could realize looking back on...

    Nice post from Eventer13-ditto everything there.

    My vet uses it in conjunction with the regular eye/blocks/etc you'd find in a normal lameness exam. It gives an objective measurement of even the...

    The whole clipper blade doesn't have to be flat on the body part, sometimes it's only one end of my blade doing the cutting. And I pull the skin over a bit when needed in really tricky spots :) Hocks...

    Looked at my Tufts bill and the MRI was actually more like $3000.
    Shoeing alone seems to fix some "navicular" horses and is certainly a first step if you wanted to try one more thing before...

    Two suggestions

    1) work on walking to the pasture for like an hour or longer. This stuff really does take a while, 20 mins isn't all that long except when you have somewhere to be :)

    This might be hard to describe in writing but here goes - when I was having trouble hand-walking my stall rest gelding I had a cowboy type trainer come out to help me. He was rearing and striking out...

    Those eating habits are classic ulcer symptoms. I know you said it's not an ulcer issue, but did you scope to confirm? You can't rule it out otherwise. I would suggest scoping her for ulcers, or just...

    Thanks for asking! More like what hasn't been going on! In Sept/Oct 2012 he was diagnosed with avulsion fractures of both front navicular bones and navicular disease. Was never lame from the...
