Dr. Getty’s Tip: Calculating with PPM in Two Easy Steps

The trace mineral content of most feeds and supplements is provided in terms of parts per million (ppm). A ppm is the same as mg/kg (1 mg is a millionth of a kg).

To do calculations, you need to convert lb or oz to kg using the following conversions:

News from the Texas Animal Health Commission
On January 21, 2015, the Texas Animal Health Commission received a report that a horse was tested positive for Equine Herpes Virus -1. The affected horse exhibited a slowly progressive onset of symptoms which ultimately progressed into some of the classic signs of Equine Herpes Myeloencephalopathy (EHM), the neurologic form of Equine Herpes Virus -1 infection. The affected horse became ataxic and weak in the hind end, exhibited bladder atony and began dribbling urine.

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.

Aromatherapy for Horses
Aromatherapy for Horses

BY Dr. Jennifer Smallwood, DVM, CVA

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to improve the physical and/or emotional well-being. Essential oils are found in tiny pouches on the surface of plants. There are several methods of extracting these oils, including cold pressing and distillation. Oils can be applied to the skin where it will pass through the layers and into the bloodstream. They can also evaporate in the air and send messages to the emotional part of the brain through smell.

The ancient Egyptian priests were among the first to understand and use the properties of herbs and flowers. They used simple observation to determine which herbs might work best for which part of the body. The bright red of cinnamon was used for its stimulating properties. The cool blue-purple of lavender was selected for calming.

Using Weight Tapes on Horses
Using Weight Tapes on Horses

By Kentucky Equine Research Staff

The concept is simple. Just wrap the weight tape around the horse, read off the figures where the end of the tape overlaps the numbered section, and you know how much your horse weighs! Easy and fail-safe, right?

To get the best results in the use of a weight tape, it’s important to be consistent. At the recent Kentucky Equine Research Fall Conference for Team Members, senior equine nutritionist Kathleen Crandell, Ph.D., explained that the weight tape is a wonderful tool, but it probably won’t yield a correct weight for your horse for several reasons.

Feeding a Young Horse a Senior or Complete Feed
Feeding a Young Horse a Senior or Complete Feed

QUESTION -
Is there any risk to feeding a young horse a senior or complete feed?


ANSWER -
Feeding a young, growing horse a product intended for a mature horse can be problematic.

Senior feeds are formulated for the requirements of mature adults, not growing horses. Although the young horse's energy requirements can be met with a senior or complete feed, protein requirements might suffer. Proteins are comprised of amino acids, and one amino acid that is particularly important for growth is lysine. In fact, insufficient lysine in the diet can keep a young horse from growing to its genetic potential. This is why lysine is sometimes referred to as the first limiting amino acid for growth in young horses. Most feeds intended for mature horses do not contain adequate lysine. On the flip side, high-quality feeds formulated for young horses generally have enough lysine to fuel growth. In addition to protein quality (i.e., amino acid composition), the amount of protein in feeds for young horses is greater, and this extra protein is used for the tissue synthesis associated with growth.

Hemp Seeds Rival Soybeans in Protein Quality
Hemp Seeds Rival Soybeans in Protein Quality
by Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.

Soybean meal is the most commonly added protein source in horse feeds. However, increasing numbers of horse owners are shying away from feeding it, most commonly because of allergic reactions. Most soybeans grown in the U.S. have been genetically modified, which is a concern for many. Furthermore, it is difficult to ascertain from a feed label if the soy product has been heat-treated (necessary for inactivating trypsin inhibitor found in raw soybeans). Finally, soy contains significant levels of phytoestrogens, which may influence behavior, affect breeding, or interact with other hormones.

The good news about soybeans is their protein quality -- it compares favorably to protein found in animal sources. But there are other good choices, the most promising of which is hemp seed.

Stalling Young Horses Alters Normal Bone Growth
Stalling Young Horses Alters Normal Bone Growth

By Kentucky Equine Research Staff

A major concern with young performance horses is the high incidence of skeletal injury. Young, growing horses transferred from pasture to stalls prior to yearling sales or commencement of training may be predisposed to injury. A decrease in bone density of the third metacarpal has been demonstrated in young racehorses soon after the onset of training. However, it was unknown whether the decrease in bone density was the result of bone remodeling caused by increased strain rates on the bone associated with training, or bone modeling resulting from decreased strain rates associated with a change in housing from pasture to stalls at the start of training.

Dr. Getty urges: “Don’t let your horse develop an ulcer!”
Dr. Getty urges: “Don’t let your horse develop an ulcer!”

Dr. Juliet Getty never stops urging horse owners to “feed your horse like a horse,” for the simple reason that a horse, fed according to his physiology and instincts, will be healthier. Dr. Getty often speaks about free choice forage feeding as the first line of defense against ulcers, but there is more an owner can do to protect his horse from the pain and stress of this condition.
“For many reasons,” says the Ph.D. equine nutrition expert, “a steady, constant supply of forage keeps your horse’s digestive system healthy, but it’s especially important in ulcer prevention.” Some basic anatomy knowledge reveals why: Unlike in the human, the horse’s stomach secretes acid all the time, even when empty. Chewing creates saliva, a natural antacid. If left without food, horses will chew on whatever they can, even their own manure, to neutralize the acid that is causing them physical pain and mental discomfort. And if left with absolutely nothing to chew on, the horse will commonly develop ulcers.

Prepare for Spring Deworming with Superior Results
Prepare for Spring Deworming with Superior Results
from QUEST® Gel Head-to-Head Study
Deworming comparison reveals a parasite load 10 times lower for treated mares

Protect your horses from parasites this spring with an effective dewormer. A recent study shows QUEST® (moxidectin) Gel was 99.9% effective at reducing small strongyles on a herd of embryo transfer recipient mares compared with Panacur® PowerPac (fenbendazole), which was only 41.9% effective 14 days post-treatment.1

“The only two active ingredients labeled to kill the dormant stage of small strongyle worms are moxidectin and fenbendazole. This study provided an apples-to-apples comparison to find the most-effective protection against this equine parasite in the adult horse,” explained one of the study’s authors, Nathan Voris, DVM, senior veterinarian, Equine Technical Services, Zoetis. “While we anticipated a certain amount of resistance to the fenbendazole product, the results far surpassed our initial expectations.”

Does that “hay belly” really mean your horse is fat?
Does that “hay belly” really mean your horse is fat?

Ever been told that your horse has a hay belly and needs to lose weight? Well, relax! He’s not fat, he just has gas! In fact, gas production is normal and healthy. It indicates that your horse is getting enough hay for hindgut microbial fermentation to occur.

A distended abdomen is often referred to as a “hay belly” to describe an overweight horse, even when the rest of his body is normal, but actual fat does not accumulate extensively on the horse’s lower abdomen (belly).

Sand Colic
Sand Colic

Prevention is best when it comes to this horse health threat.
horses grazing
By Cynthia McFarland for AQHA Corporate Partner Farnam

If you don’t live in Florida or the desert Southwest, you probably think your horse isn’t at risk for sand colic. Think again.

When a horse grazes on short, sparse pasture or is fed hay on the ground, he can ingest sand or dirt. Some horses – especially foals – actually develop a fondness for eating soil, a behavior known as “geophagia.”

Depending on how much is consumed, the sand can accumulate in the horse’s ventral colon and cecum. In regions of the country where sandy soil is common, it’s not unusual for horses to have small amounts of sand in the intestinal tract.

Radiographs (X-rays) and ultrasound are two common techniques used by veterinarians to determine the presence of sand in the horse’s intestine. Veterinarians may also listen to internal sounds with a stethoscope or perform a fecal sand float.

When it comes to these drugs, there's a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding. Here's what you need to know.

“Veterinarians should be aware that just because a pharmacokinetic study of a new drug has been performed in horses doesn’t mean that enough information now exists to use that drug,” said Virginia R. Fajt, DVM, Ph.D., a clinical associate professor of Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology at Texas A&M University.
