    views on prednisolone????

    Thanks for the reply. That's really good news. I'm worried sick seeing my boy staggering and losing his balance. Weird thing is, he doesn't seem to be in pain with it. Read somewhere that ataxia isn't actually painful, but will be distressing for the horse. He manages reasonably ok till he...

    views on prednisolone????

    Hi Pistolpete, I know this is a very old thread, but my boy is just about to start on 100 prednisolone tabs per day, for something that sounds very similar to your horse's problem. Did he come good on them?

    Barrier type ointment safe near eyes?

    Just been scrolling through some old messages - one thing that sprang to mind is camrosa ointment - that's very vaseliney in consistency.

    Did the planning approval notice state how you were to dispose of/store the poo?

    Arthritis in horse - best supplement?

    As per title - any recommendations? Think the old fella is feeling the effects of the cold and damp - much like his owner.

    Weeing on the lorry

    I always used shavings to soak it up. Then wash out with disinfectant. Having said that - my hubby was brilliant with my boy - he'd just take him for a little walk before loading, and he'd pee for him. Never worked for me though. Must be a man thing!

    What could be triggering asthma at this time of year?

    Another one whose horse was affected by temperature - if the wind shifted round to a northerly direction, I knew he was in trouble. Damp south westerly winds didn't make any significant difference to him - but cold dry northerlies - disaster!

    A bit of a morbid one....

    When I had my old boy PTS 4 years ago, I asked the Vet beforehand, if a veterinary college may be interested in having his body. (there's one not very far from me.) His response was that they probably would be interested, but that he would have to be PTS at their premises. That was the deal...

    How far do you travel to your yard?

    13 miles and 25 mins. (30 if I hit school traffic). This really is the furthest I'm prepared to go (what with the cost of fuel!!), but I'm prepared to compromise as I'd been looking for a track livery for ages, and was lucky to get this space. Only need to go once a day, and if I can't get there...
