Let it bleed: CSU veterinary profs build booming startup with lifelike surgical models.
Let it bleed: CSU veterinary profs build booming startup with lifelike surgical models.

FORT COLLINS - Practicing surgical techniques on artificial skin that bleeds sure beats the alternative, Paul Ryan, a Colorado State University veterinary student, says. Before SurgiReal suture pads, his material of choice was “bananas, lots of bananas.”

Now, students at CSU and 140 other medical, nursing and veterinary schools nationwide train with patented SurgiReal body wall models developed by two Colorado State equine surgeons, Dr. Dean Hendrickson and Dr. Fausto Bellezzo.

SurgiReal products allow students to practice and refine surgical skills on realistic models instead of the old standbys – carpet scraps, orange peels and cadaver specimens, chiefly pigs’ feet. Unlike those crude substitutes, SurgiReal training models have multiple layers and exude fake blood.

Inventors Hendrickson and Bellezzo formed their startup in 2012 with help from CSU Ventures, a branch of the university that works with CSU faculty on technology transfer and commercialization. This spring, with business booming, the two veterinarians received the CSU Ventures Award for Innovative Excellence, a sign of success in moving technology to the marketplace.

Having Problems Feeding Your Horse Pills? PROBLEM SOLVED!
Having Problems Feeding Your Horse Pills? PROBLEM SOLVED!


Camp Verde resident and owner of 707 Ranch LLC, Nancy Pohlman, has just invented two new products that will revolutionize the way horses are fed supplements. These products, called Horse Pill Carriers and Horse Psyllium Defenders, make it easy and quick to give horses their necessary medication and psyllium. After testing a small market, 707 Ranch LLC has received a 100% positive feedback, with demands to increase production for both products. They will be launching an Indiegogo campaign this summer to help financially meet those demands.

Six Points to Consider Before Using a Calming Supplement
Six Points to Consider Before Using a Calming Supplement
By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.

Travel and competition season is upon us, and “show nerves” are common, even in horses. Agitated, nervous horses that are normally well behaved may benefit from a calming supplement. These products can contain vitamins, or minerals, or herbs, or amino acids. So, which to choose and how best to use them? Before making a decision, consider these important points:
· An empty stomach is the main cause for behavioral issues—forage (hay and/or pasture) should be available at all times.

· Magnesium deficiency may be the issue, since most horses don’t get enough of this mineral—if this is true for your horse, supplementing 5,000 mg of magnesium per 500 lbs of body weight will make a positive change in demeanor.

· A borderline B vitamin deficiency will affect behavior and can result when the hindgut microbial population is compromised by stress, high starch diets, illness, or antibiotics. Thiamin (vitamin B1) has been shown to be especially effective at high doses (1 mg per pound of body weight). Prebiotics that feed existing microbes also result in more B vitamin production.

· Tryptophan, an essential amino acid, leads to serotonin synthesis in the brain and can be useful in soothing a nervous horse. For this effect to occur, it is best to offer tryptophan as a paste between meals. When added to a meal, tryptophan will not be used for serotonin production and the calming effect will be significantly diminished

· Caution! Herbs such as chamomile, valerian, black cohosh, ginger root, and passion flower may have an over-tranquilizing effect, interact with other medications, and have side effects. Consult with your veterinarian before using.

· Additional caution to you competitors out there: Always check any supplements for ingredients prohibited by competition rules. Valerian is such an example.

Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D. is an independent equine nutritionist with a wide American and international following. Her research-based approach optimizes equine health by aligning physiology and instincts with correct feeding and nutrition practices.

Horse Health- Avert Laminitis
Horse Health- Avert Laminitis


If it wasn't such a debilitating and potentially life-threatening disease illness, we wouldn't keep writing about laminitis. But having lived through it twice, I can tell you that it is scarey, expensive and painful for your horse. So here are the facts again from our expert, Dr. Jennifer Smallwood:

Laminitis, sometimes called founder, is a painful condition caused by inflammation of the laminae, the tissues that secure the coffin bone to the hoof wall. This inflammation is caused by disruption of blood flow to the laminae and can lead to permanent disruption in the bond causing the coffin bone to rotate and or sink. Symptoms can be varied depending on the limbs affected and the degree of inflammation. It can strike in one, both front or all four legs.

Five Tips for a Successful Spring Turnout
Five Tips for a Successful Spring Turnout

Courtesy:Purina Horse Health
Shoreview, Minn. ­— After a long, snowy winter in many parts of the country, people and horses alike are eager to get out and enjoy spring warmth and sunshine. Pastures are greening up, and it’s time for horse owners to open the barn and let their horses dine al fresco.

“It’s tempting to just let horses out and allow them to graze for as long as they want,” said Dr. Karen Davison, equine nutritionist, Purina Animal Nutrition. “But it’s important to introduce horses to pasture grass in a way that doesn’t invite issues like gastrointestinal upset, laminitis or weight gain in already-overweight horses.”

Dr. Davison shares five tips for horse owners to help ensure a successful and healthy spring turnout.

Equine Immunization Support Guarantee Expands to Include Equine Herpesvirus Types 1 and 4
Equine Immunization Support Guarantee Expands to Include Equine Herpesvirus Types 1 and 4
Unparalleled support for your horse available from Zoetis

FLORHAM PARK, N.J.— Zoetis has expanded the Equine Immunization Support Guarantee (ISG) to include the respiratory forms of Equine Herpesvirus Type 1 (EHV-1) and Type 4 (EHV-4) viruses.

These viruses can infect the respiratory tract and cause disease that varies in severity from subclinical to severe and are characterized by fever, lethargy, anorexia, nasal discharge and cough. Through the Equine ISG, Zoetis stands behind its trusted line of vaccines, a program that provides horse owners up to $5,000 for reasonable diagnostic and treatment costs if a properly vaccinated horse contracts a corresponding equine disease.

“The program was expanded to offer the most comprehensive health care for horses,” said Robert Holland, DVM, PhD, director of Outcomes Research, Zoetis. “It showcases our confidence in the safety and efficacy of our equine FLUVAC INNOVATOR® line of vaccines with the MetaStim® adjuvant.”

Dr. Holland further explained that the average cost for diagnosis and treatment of EHV-4 can be expensive for the owner and range from $1,600 to $2,700 per horse.1

To be eligible for the Equine ISG, vaccinations must be obtained and administered by a licensed veterinarian. Veterinarians are an essential resource to help horse owners develop the most complete vaccination program based on geographic location, how often horses travel to shows or other events and other factors that affect disease risk. Other disease protection backed by the Equine ISG includes infection from West Nile, equine influenza, tetanus, Eastern equine encephalomyelitis, Western equine encephalomyelitis and Venezuelan equine encephalomyelitis.

“With the prevalence of equine herpesvirus cases, it is important that horse owners consult with their veterinarians on a sound vaccination regimen based on the risks in their area,” said Kevin Hankins, DVM, Equine Veterinary Services, Zoetis. “The Equine Immunization Support Guarantee offers additional peace of mind to horse owners looking to help provide the best possible disease protection for their horses.”

Swear BY Your Axles or Swear AT Them?
Swear BY Your Axles or Swear AT Them?

Torsion suspension vs. leaf spring suspension axles – the pros and cons of each!

There are two forms of suspension that are used on most trailer axles – torsion or leaf sprung. If you have researched either type, you have probably found that there are many contradictory opinions. However, the reality is that both forms of suspension have pros and cons. You need to decide which system is best for you. We will discuss both forms of suspension.

Torsion Suspension Axles

Torsion axles are mounted directly to the frame of the trailer. They have four rubber cords in the axle tubing that resist torsion, create suspension, and provide shock absorption. As you drive down the road, the rubberized cords compress and offer even wheel suspension which gives a smoother ride with less vibration.

The problem with torsion axles is that they do not have replaceable or repairable parts due to their attached construction. If your axle breaks, you will have to replace the entire suspension system by cutting off the old one and installing new. This can be extremely costly. In addition, because each axle is separate from the other, there is no transfer of impact. For example, if a pothole is hit, the full force will hit only that wheel which can cause more damage.

Leaf Spring Suspension Axles

Leaf spring axles are the most common form of axles due to their affordability. A leaf spring axle is composed of curved leaves stacked on top of each other installed below the axle. The leaf spring suspension has an “equalizer bar” that connects both axles. This bar is designed to equally distribute force between the two axles. This will limit the damage caused by potholes, etc. Leaf spring axles are fairly easy and inexpensive to replace as they are made up of many different components.

Unfortunately, leaf springs have their downfalls too. Because leaf springs have so many components, there are a lot of things that can break. Unlike the torsion suspension, leaf sprung suspension does not have rubber cords to take the impact of a bumpy road. This can make the trailer ride a bit bumpy.

As you can see, both types of suspension have their pros and cons. You need to weigh your options and see which type of suspension is best for the hauling you will be doing. Know your facts and swear by your axles – not at them!

Misconceptions In Selecting Forage For Horses:
Misconceptions In Selecting Forage For Horses:

Forage Cutting

Depending on climate, length of growing season and the variety of forage, it is possible to have as few as one cutting or as many as seven cuttings in a season.

Horses can only eat first cutting forage or horses can only eat third cutting forage.

The quality or the suitability of forage for horses is not determined by the "cutting" but instead is determined by the height of the plant at the time of cutting.

The taller a plant becomes, the more of its structure is dedicated to supporting the plant to keep it upright. This means as plants become taller, they become more fibrous, like tress, and less digestible. Taller plants will contain less energy, less protein and be less digestible compared to shorter plants.

So selecting forage should be based on the height of the plant at the time of harvest rather than if it is first or second cutting. For example, if rain delays the harvest of a cutting of forage, it will become taller and less digestible which may cause it to be lower in quality for horses.

Managing Thrush with Protection and Sole Support
Managing Thrush with Protection and Sole Support
by Tab Pigg

In the spring, the wet climate, punctuated by ample rain, sets the stage for thrush to run rampant through the barn. Thrush is a bacterial infection that resides in the soft tissue of the frog. The moist environment, combined with manure and mud, create unsanitary conditions in the stall, and dirt, debris and other bacteria get trapped in the frog. If horses hooves are not picked out on a daily basis, thrush sets in and it can be difficult to conquer. And, when a horse has beginning stages of thrush, it probably won’t even show lameness symptoms unless the infection becomes more severe.

New life at Colorado State University's Equine Reproduction Laboratory
New life at Colorado State University's Equine Reproduction Laboratory

FORT COLLINS - The cycle repeats every year in late winter and early spring: After 11 months of pregnancy, about 40 mares give birth at Colorado State University’s Equine Reproduction Laboratory.

The mares and newborn foals are watched closely by veterinarians and students taking a Foaling Management class, which is offered each spring.

The class gives students – primarily equine science and veterinary students – a chance to learn about and assist with mare care, foaling, and newborn care. The arrangement also gives horse owners peace of mind that expectant mares are monitored around the clock.

Along with students, a veterinarian attends each foaling and conducts well-baby exams.

As the 2015 show season approaches, horse owners should not only be ramping up their training schedules and checking the fit of their show clothes, but they should also be considering ways to help protect their horses’ health while traveling.

“Diseases pose a significant health risk to horses and the best way to help prevent them is through vaccinations,” says Megan Green, DVM, manager, Merial Large Animal Veterinary Services. “Another way to help protect horse health is for horse owners to be aware of disease outbreaks in their areas and in areas they may be traveling to so they can take any necessary precautions.”

SIU Research Looks to Solve Equine Colic Mystery
SIU Research Looks to Solve Equine Colic Mystery

Colic. It’s a grim word with dire meaning for horse owners. It kills backyard ponies and million-dollar race horses alike. The early signs can be subtle, easily missed. And by the time the signs are unmistakable, sometimes it’s too late.

Erin Venable, MS, PhD, assistant professor of equine science at Southern Illinois University (SIU) Carbondale and an equine nutrition authority, isn't the first researcher to want to find a cure. But she is one of a small number with access to one of the best research tools available: cannulated horses, eight of them.

A cannulated horse is one that's undergone a cecal cannulation procedure. That means the horse has a surgical portal through which researchers can access the section of the horse’s gastrointestinal tract called the cecum, which is the anterior portion of the large intestine, or the hindgut, which is where a horse does most of its digesting. The cecal cannulation makes it possible for researchers to sample intestinal contents in order to study nutritional or digestive physiology.
