Piles of grass clippings are no treat for your horse By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.
Piles of grass clippings are no treat for your horse
By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.

Are you tempted to cut your grass, then rake it into soft, fragrant, tasty piles of clippings for your horse to nibble? According to equine nutrition expert Dr. Juliet Getty this should be the last thing you encourage your horse to eat. It has to do with that extra step: raking. Grass clippings that stay on the pasture after mowing, where they can dry in small amounts, are generally not a problem. But never gather them into piles to feed them to your horse. Here’s why:

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.

Horse With Colic: Is Surgery Needed?
Why you can't delay whenever colic surgery is possible.

When field veterinarians are evaluating a horse suffering from colic, the most important question to quickly answer is, “Does this horse need surgery, or can the issue be resolved through medical treatment?” An evidence-based approach to evaluating the usefulness of the information gathered during the clinical exam can help equine veterinarians make an appropriate decision.

Many horses referred to hospitals for colic surgery are presented with severe gastrointestinal lesions that can quickly lead to shock and death. The survival rate rapidly decreases in inverse proportion to the duration of clinical signs. The more quickly a horse is referred to surgery, the more likely the horse will have a successful surgical outcome.

Sarcoid Tumors Linked to Genetic Susceptibility in Horses
A new study led by scientists at the Baker Institute for Animal Health at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine shows genetic differences in immune function partly account for why some horses get sarcoid tumors while others do not.

A horse’s genetic makeup influences whether or not they develop sarcoid skin tumors, according to a new study by an international research group led by scientists at the Baker Institute for Animal Health at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

Sarcoid skin tumors are the most common form of cancer in horses, the college noted, but little is known about why the papillomavirus behind them strikes some horses and not others…Until now.

What’s Good to Put on a Horse’s Wound?
Horses sometimes seem almost single-mindedly bent on hurting themselves, so proper wound care is an important part of any equine practitioner’s responsibilities. To help with those responsibilities, a seemingly endless number of products are said to help promote wound healing. Unfortunately, many of them lack evidence of safety or effectiveness, and some can even cause harm.

At the American Association of Equine Practitioners conference in December, Colorado State University’s Dean Hendrickson, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVS, gave a presentation on “What You Should and Should Not Put on Wounds,” from which most of this article is drawn.

Horse receives honorary veterinary degree from UC Davis
19-year-old thoroughbred honored for being a "Master Equine Educator" while helping veterinary students learn.

This spring the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine (UC Davis) not only conferred DVM degrees on more than 100 veterinary students, but they also awarded an honorary degree to a special equine patient, a 19-year-old thoroughbred named Teddy, according to a university release.

"Dr. Teddy" helped students learn equine health through more than two dozen appointments ranging from the routine, like vaccinations and deworming, to the more complex, such as stem cell treatments and a neurological disorder, over a yearlong stay at the university's teaching hospital.

WHAT IS A BLEEDER?
To most people a “bleeder” is a horse that has blood at the nostrils during or after training or competing.

ESSENTIALLY ALL HORSES ARE BLEEDERS!

However, research has shown that if horses are ‘scoped (the pro- cess of placing a thin tube with a camera inside the windpipe) after working or racing, between 40-80% of horses will have some blood visible in the windpipe, but not at the nostrils. That is, you would not know the horse had bled unless you ‘scoped it. If you ‘scope any horse on three different occasions after a hard workout it will have blood in the windpipe on at least one occasion. If we look even deeper into the lung we know that most horses break blood vessels.

Equine Infectious Anemia
Equine Infectious Anemia is a retrovirus infection in horses and other Equidae. This disease is usually observed as an acute clinical infection, but tends to become a subclinical infection with time and good care. The infected horse, however, has infectious white blood cells circulating in it's blood stream indefinitely, therefore, a positive testing horse regardless of his physical appearance must never be allowed contact with other horses.

The only prevention is immediate euthanasia or isolation ( i.e. screened stall ). This virus is passed via horse fly bites, contaminated equipment ( i.e. needles, stomach tubes, and dental floats ). The virus can also be transmitted via contaminated multiple dose vials of vaccine or drugs used I.V. or I.M. and it may be retained in drug vials for months and even years.

Conditioning the Equine Athlete
“Show me your horse and I will tell you who you
are.” – English Proverb

This is not an all-inclusive discussion of how to rehabilitate your horse from a specific injury or how to condition a young horse for the first time. That discus- sion and those recommendations are best supplied by your attending veterinarian.

This is a simple, straightforward roadmap for an athlete that has already been conditioned for competition. This may be a horse that is returning to work after a period of rest (i.e., a winter off) or a horse that is coming back from a period of active rest. Western performance sports tend to have an annual cycle of com- petition and an off-season. The off-season gives the horse a chance to recover mentally and physically from the stresses of travelling and competing. If your horse is free from injury, he will benefit from a period of active rest during the off-season. An example of active rest would involve riding 2-3 times / week. Strive for peak condition during times of the competitive season. After competi- tion, reduce your horse’s workload 20% for 3-5 days.

New Organization Supports AHC Welfare Code
The American Farrier’s Association is the latest organization to endorse the American Horse Council’s (AHC) Welfare Code of Practice.

The AHC Welfare Code of Practice is a broad set of principles designed to establish good welfare procedures for organizations to follow to “Put the Horse First.” The code outlines in broad strokes what principles organizations are committed to in breeding, training, competing, transporting, enjoying, and caring for their horses. The code encourages everyone to consider the health, safety, and welfare of their horses in all aspects of their activities, including the social and ethical issues.

Add a Serving of Caution to the Tender Spring Grass By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.
Add a Serving of Caution to the Tender Spring Grass
By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.

Spring is almost upon us in most of the country, so it’s time to revisit that critical topic: spring grazing.

Transitioning a horse from hay to pasture must be handled with care; this point is non-negotiable. For every horse, a gradual change from hay to grass is required to allow the digestive system to adapt, but for the insulin-resistant horse, grazing time and duration can make the difference between soundness and a disabling condition like laminitis. This time of year can be a test of patience for horse—and owner. The horse may be pawing at the gate to get to the first taste of tender spring grass, yet the owner must pay close attention to making the transition safe and healthful.

Animal Health Top Concern for Farmers, Veterinarians By Elizabeth Quesnell Kohtz, DVM
Animal Health Top Concern for Farmers, Veterinarians
By Elizabeth Quesnell Kohtz, DVM

A few weeks ago I attended a college reunion. It was fun and refreshing to see friends from years ago. Although I returned home feeling fine, apparently the stress of traveling combined with being around a new group of people was too much for my immune system. A few days later, I was sick. Luckily it was a viral infection and I quickly recovered, but not all illness clears up without medication. Both humans and animals get sick, and sometimes recovery requires antibiotics. On the farm, the age of the animal, time of year, weather conditions, pen changes and other stressors can all contribute to the need to use medications to treat sick animals. Withholding treatment from an ill animal is poor husbandry and could be considered animal cruelty.

Maintain Joint Health with More Synovial Fluid Production
Maintain Joint Health with More Synovial Fluid Production

Joint maintenance and joint care are key to keep training on schedule. Repetitive stress from competition and conditioning, in addition to everyday wear and tear, impacts even the most athletic horses.1 From racehorses to jumpers, every horse is susceptible to joint damage.

The equine joint is engineered to provide virtually frictionless motion through the combination of a smooth articular cartilage surface as well as lubrication of the cartilage and the synovial membrane.

UC Davis Acquires First Equine PET Scanner
UC Davis' new portable PET scanner is the first of its kind to be used to image horses.

The UC Davis veterinary hospital recently acquired a positron emission tomography (PET) scanner, becoming the first veterinary facility in the world to utilize the imaging technology for equine patients. In association with the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine’s Center for Equine Health (CEH), the hospital will launch use of the PET scanner in the summer of 2016. The unit has been acquired for research and clinical studies on lameness diagnosis in horses.

While most other imaging techniques provide “morphological” information (identifying changes in size, shape or density of structures), PET is a “functional” imaging technique, observing activity at the molecular level – detecting changes in the tissue before the size or shape is modified. Once morphological changes have occurred, PET can tell whether the changes are still active or not.

Horse Receives Honorary Veterinary Degree from UC Davis
At the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine this past Saturday, 137 students received their Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degrees. In a barn a few hours away, a 19-year-old Thoroughbred horse unknowingly became a doctor also. “Dr. Teddy” received an honorary degree from UC Davis for being a “Master Equine Educator” for the students, having helped them learn equine health at more than two dozen appointments and a lengthy stay at the school’s teaching hospital over the past year.

Avoid a Hay Belly
Improve horse health in your barn by identifying, treating and preventing hay bellies. Understanding the cause of a hay belly in horses will help you make educated feed choices.

Despite regular exercising and balanced feeding, does your horse still look like he or she is in need of a “tummy tuck?” If you’ve ruled out post-colic surgery effects, parasites and broodmare belly as the cause of the large gut, then it’s likely your horse has a nutritional imbalance. We’ve outlined answers to common questions so you can identify, treat and prevent a hay belly in your horse.

Q: How can I tell if my horse has a hay belly?

Australian Study Questions Use of Crank Nosebands Horses fitted with tight bridles show signs of stress
Loose nosebands allow for free movement of a horse’s jaws and mouth.

University of Sydney veterinary researchers have found that an extremely tight noseband on horses raises the animals’ stress levels, calling into question whether its use should continue in equestrian competitions.

Recreation horses commonly are fitted with bridles that permit two fingers to fit under the noseband. In contrast, crank nosebands may be ratcheted before a competition to eliminate all space, a practice that restricts tongue movements and in a worst-case scenario “can compromise vascular perfusion and may even cause nerve and bone damage,” the authors reported.
