Weak Signal - BIG RESPONSE Mac Stein, PT
Weak Signal - BIG RESPONSE
Mac Stein, PT

The application of various forms of Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field (PEMF) to living tissues for therapeutic purposes is older than antibiotics. Early reports were met with ridicule. Over the past 3 decades a considerable volume of published, well-designed research has solidified the knowledge base for how PEMF generated outside the body by a weak radio frequency (RF) signal is capable of influencing molecules, cells and tissue in favorably treating a wide variety of soft tissue injuries and conditions. As it is making the transition from complementary to evidence-based medicine, PEMF therapy is still misunderstood by the majority of health professionals and the public.

Success With Cooled Semen
What stallion owners and cooled semen users should know.

Stallion owners who ship cooled semen have a certain amount of responsibility to their clients. The most important responsibility is to provide mare owners with quality semen that survives the cooling and transportation process and arrives on time. Most stallions produce semen that remains viable for extended periods of time after being cooled and shipped. However, some stallions' semen does not survive the cooling process, so it is important that, prior to breeding season, the stallion's semen be evaluated for sperm concentration and motility.

Cooled Semen 101
What mare owners should know about artificial insemination.

Handling cooled semen is best done in an equine reproduction lab, like this one at Colorado State University. Journal photo

Today's mare owner has more breeding options than ever before. One of the options is artificial insemination with cooled/shipped semen, making it possible to breed your mare to any stallion in the country, without her leaving your property. Shipping cooled semen from the stud farm to the mare allows owners to control mare care and reduce transportation costs.

How to Fine-Tune a Horse's Diet to Match Its Medical Needs Easy ways to support horses diagnosed with chronic conditions through nutrition
As we know, practicing medicine means a lot more than simply prescribing medications. Instead, many equine conditions require a multimodal treatment approach, frequently including changes in diet and environment. Consider heaves, for example. Not only do horses benefit from either systemic (corticosteroids, bronchodilators, omega-3 fatty acids) or inhaled (corticosteroids, bronchodilators, cromones) medications, but also management changes. As described in the recently published ACVIM revised consensus statement on inflammatory airway disease of horses, using low-dust bedding and feedstuffs (e.g., changing to a complete pelleted feed rather than hay), improving barn ventilation to reduce respirable airborne particles, turning horses out 24/7, and soaking hay and avoiding hay nets if/when hay is offered are all equally important.

USDA Awards $4.3 Million to Ensure Access to Needed Veterinary Services in Rural Communities
WASHINGTON, Nov. 3, 2016 – The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) today awarded more than $4.3 million to 48 American veterinarians to help repay a portion of their veterinary school loans in return for serving in areas lacking sufficient veterinary resources critical to America's food safety, food security, and to the health and well-being of animals and humans. The awards, made through NIFA's Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program (VMLRP), will fill shortage needs in 27 states.

"Veterinarians play a critical role in keeping our nation's food supply safe and animals healthy," said NIFA director Sonny Ramaswamy. "The need for veterinarians in designated shortage areas is urgent. This loan repayment assistance program provides incentives for students to take up rural veterinary practices and help take care of American livestock."

Equine Leptospirosis – A Hidden Threat to Your Horse’s Health
LEPTO EQ INNOVATOR® is the first and only vaccine to help prevent leptospirosis caused by L. pomona.

While not as well-recognized, the effects of equine leptospirosis can be devastating. Leptospirosis, an infectious bacterial disease, can affect mammals, including wildlife, cattle, dogs, horses and even humans.

“My mare, Patty, had a spot on her eye. I had our veterinarian examine her, and he conducted a titer test,” explained Beth Parker Woodliff, a horse owner from North Carolina in October 2016. “Patty lost her sight in that eye, and then a uveitis spot appeared in her other eye. She became totally blind, and we ended up having her put down as she wasn’t adjusting well to losing her sight. It was heartbreaking.”

Protect Your Horse from Potomac Horse Fever Before First Frost
Keep them safe with the No. 1 PHF Vaccine¹

Many times horse owners don’t think about Potomac Horse Fever (PHF) until it’s too late. PHF is a seasonal disease, with higher chances of infection during the late spring to early fall in temperate areas.2 As a horse owner, you should be on the lookout for any signs until after the first hard frost.3

“This disease has already affected several horses this season and it does not show signs of stopping until frost sets in, unless you take steps to help protect your horse,” says Hoyt Cheramie, DVM, MS, Manager, Merial Large Animal Veterinary Services.

AHA Statement on Horse Protection Act
Many AHA members are aware of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) recently proposed changes to the regulations governing enforcement of the Horse Protection Act (HPA).

Please read the AHA Letter & Position Statement, written by AHA Executive Vice President, Glenn T. Petty below.

The HPA is a law that was created primarily to end the practice of “soring” in some parts of the Tennessee Walking Horse, Racking Horse, and Spotted Saddle Horse Industries. This law was passed by Congress and is enforced by the USDA. The USDA has the authority to create any Rules it deems necessary to enforce this law. These Proposed Rules were published on July 25, 2016.

A 60-day Public Hearing and Public Comment period began. This comment period has been extended and ends October 26, 2016 at which time the USDA will review comments, make any revisions/changes, and finalize the Rule. Because the HPA is already a law, there is no Congressional vote.

What You Need to Know About Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplements for Horses
Is the skin the thing? Let’s delve deeper into the dietary omega 3 fatty acids benefits for horses, including economic benefits!

Some say beauty is only skin deep, and that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But what horse lover doesn’t notice (and perhaps drool a little) when confronted with another horse on the course with way healthier skin than their own horse’s and a coat so dazzling it's nearly blinding?

Perusing the plethora of products available for horse owners to bolster their equines’ outer beauty, many of the ingredients are typical of those found in hoof supplements—biotin, methionine, copper, zinc, a smattering of amino acids and other vitamins, herbs, and nutrients. Right alongside those is the “mane” event: the Mighty Omegas!

Where Did All the Vet Techs Go?
NATVA's 2016 survey reveals the challenges vet techs face, which leads to high turnover.

Here at Veterinary Practice News, we try to poke fun at the difficult aspects of the veterinary technician profession. (We call them #vettechproblems.) But joking aside, there are some serious issues in the vet tech profession. Those issues are highlighted in the recent 2016 Demographic Survey from the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA), and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) recently published article called "Technician shortage may be a problem of turnover instead.”

Omega 3 Supplements – the Old and the New By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.
Omega 3 Supplements – the Old and the New
By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.

A horse lucky enough to graze on pasture will consume enough essential fatty acids to maintain his health. The word “essential” has a scientific meaning in this context – it signifies that the fatty acids cannot be produced by the horse’s body and therefore must be included in the diet. There are two such fatty acids: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega 3, and linoleic acid (LA), classified as an omega 6. If deficient, the horse will experience problems relating to immune function and hormone regulation; skin, hoof and joint disorders; depression and aggressive tendencies[i]; and general malaise. A true deficiency is uncommon, but what we do often see is an imbalance between ALA and LA (omega 3 and omega 6), created by the over-supplementation of oils that are high in LA.

What to Do if a Horse’s Cornea Turns Blue
What equine veterinarians need to do.

A partially blue eye could be the sign of a focal problem. An eye that turns completely blue, below, has different implications.

Equine veterinary practitioners are often presented with an eye that has developed an opaque light-blue color, not unlike that of a robin’s egg. Whether the blue color covers part or all of the horse’s eye, astute clients are sure to note the change. While clients may not know the reason for the change, they certainly recognize that the eye doesn’t look normal.

West Nile Virus
West Nile Virus (WNV) is a mosquito-borne virus first detected in the United States (U.S.) in the New York City area in 1999. Since 1999, the virus has spread throughout the U.S. and Canada, infecting birds, humans, horses, and other animals. As of 2015, more than 27,000 horses in the U.S. have been infected since the disease was first identified. The virus is maintained in the wild bird population and is spread between birds by mosquitos. Birds are considered the natural reservoir for WNV since high levels of virus circulate in their bloodstream. Mosquitos acquire WNV in blood meals from infected birds and pass it on to other birds, animals, and people. Mosquitos that feed on an infected horse or human have not demonstrated the ability to ingest enough of the virus to transmit it to other animals or humans; therefore, horses and humans are considered “dead end hosts.”

Additional $5,000 reward for shooting of three burros in Arizona Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust
The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust are offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the death of three wild burros near Lake Pleasant, Arizona. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is currently investigating the case, and has previously offered a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest or conviction, bringing the total reward to $7,500.

The Case: According to officials, three wild burros were intentionally shot and killed in the Morgan City Wash, which is just south of the Lake Pleasant Herd Management Area.

Colostrum – An Exceptional Superfood! By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.
Colostrum – An Exceptional Superfood!
By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.

Colostrum – you know it as the mare’s first milk. It is a complex fluid, rich in nutrients and immune-regulating compounds, all designed to give the newborn foal the immune support he needs to thrive. Unlike humans, who are born with an initial level of immunity, newborn horses do not benefit from any placental transfer of immunoglobulins; therefore they must consume colostrum in the first few hours of life in order to survive.
