leg pain

Hello! I was referred by Newport Coast Animal Hospital because apparently the owner of this company also brings her pet there:). Being naturally minded they thought you might be able to help. I have a young 2 year old dog who has a leg injury in what seems to be where the leg joins the body or in the knee. Xrays and an exam have been done and they can’t find anything wrong:/ He walks a little off but more concerning is he lies in bed all day and going on week 4:((( Would you recommend cbd for the pain and inflammation. They gave me tylenol and I really didn’t want to use it and yesterday after such a long time now of him being not himself I gave it a try and it stimulated a seizure:/ If there’s any help you could offer I would really appreciate it. Ty so much!

Eye injury

Have a 25YO mare with a cornea ulcer and the discussion is to euthanasia wondering if you have any remedy suggestions as we are giving 1 more week until a decision has to be made. Still happy and eating. Not worried if loss of sight just would like to assist holistically as well as conventionally.

I was interested to read the article 'Resistant!' about equine parasites. In the UK we have Verm-X, a herbal wormer for horses, and indeed other animals. I use it for my cats too. It isn't unusual for my two cobs to have a zero worm count. It's fabulous stuff. Completely natural and my ponies love it. I haven't used a chemical wormer for years, not that it worked particularly well when I did. I can't find a stockist for the USA. I'd advise someone to import. I can't recommend it enough.

Winter laminitis

The condition is strikingly similar to Raynauds syndrome in people, and is linked to hypothyroidism. TSH is a poor indicator of hypothyroidism. I've had my TSH at the lowest end of the range, yet had been symptomatic because my free T3 is too low. Also, low progesterone or high estrogen causes it to flare. I'd bet some of t he same processes are at work in horses.

Lymes disease

I have a horse that was diagnosed with lymes disease. He is going to be going through the month long IV antibiotic treatment, but I would like to set up a holistic treatment that would work with the antibiotic to help healing him. He has been showing some neurological signs, and I know that treatment is not 100% so I am trying to set up the best plan possible for him. I read your article on herds that help with the lymes, but was wondering how to figure out the amount to give of each herb and how many to put together in each mixture. Thank you for any help.

Good Morning Ladies,
I have a 24 year old donkey with Cushings and metabolic syndrome. I have been giving him Thyro-Vet for a number of years. He also takes Pracend.. I have been researching online alternative thyroid treatments.
Have seen a different school of thought from what vets traditionally do just prescribe something. Some article seemed to indicate that equines have thyroid issues lasting years. I have friends who have chosen not to take thyroid medication, choosing to use alternatives. I am wondering if you have used herbs or essential oils for a thyroid condition or cushings with any success?
Thank you

top line development

I have a 16 yr old TB mare that came to me with an atrophied top line. Muscles in her back were hard and unresponsive to palpation. She could not lift and use her back. Long story short- mare turned out to be anhydronic (sweats but not enough) Her muscle dysfunction was related to this metabolic problem.She was treated with thyroid medication and One AC. Muscle function has returned along with flexibility. Horse is schooling 2nd level dressage comfortably. Core muscle function is normal and strong. Her body condition is 5 except for her topline which scores a 4.5. We have tried everything to round out her "A" framed top line. It has improved since she came to us but now with her age she seems to have plateaued. Can a horse have a weak looking top line but have a strong enough core to do the job?

Horse abscess

Hello, I am messaging from a rural area in Panama. i recently arrived to this farm and one of the horses has a large abscess around what would be its knee. It's approximately half the size of a tennis ball and looks very membranous. The color is about a yellow/white, but it is hard to tell because the local here who has been treating it has been using a purple disinfectant. Seeing as we are in the jungle and far, far away from any vet, I am on the hunt for a home remedy. Could you please provide any information or resources you may have available? How could I maybe do moxabustion here?? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciate. Thanks, Lauren

I just found out my Paso Fino gelding has EPM and Lymes disease. Do you know of any supportive therapies after he is finished with his medication. Any info would be helpful.

Renee' Miler more than 5 years ago


I'm sorry to hear about such a troublesome double diagnosis. Here's something I found out when my vet thought my horse may have EPM, -many people say to super boost the E vitamins, and vit. C for immune support. I was lucky my boy came out "zero", but I did learn about Yucca, Yucca has been found to have some anti-protozoa qualities, it's really worth reading about. Back On Track leg wraps have helped my horse, it is incredible actually. I bet the BOT mesh sheet would help comfort your horse.

Any way I can help my horse overcome feeling grief of the death of her companion

If you have a magazine that has an article about this, please send it to me. Years ago i watched a TV show with an animal communicator saying you need to tell the animal that lost a companion that they are not coming back. I have told my horse three times her friend is not coming back, she is still looking for her. My horse does have two other horses in the pasture with her, that she also gets along with. However, still was wondering if there is anything else I can do for her?

I have an 8yr old gelding that our vet told us had cataracts when he was 6. Now with the latest wellness check the vet tells us the cataracts have progressed to about 30% in both eyes. She also told us nothing could be done. She says there are only 2 or 3 doctors in the US that can treat it and how expensive it would be to have surgery done by flying in a specialist. Is this completely acurate and are there other alternatives? We want do trail rides and just general rides, no competition stuff, just family. How will his sight begin to affect that.

Swollen sheath won't retract

i have a 23 yr old grey horse with cancer. I rescued him about 2 yrs ago. He had bad teeth, bad feet and a belly full of sand. All corrected now. His cancer rumors are getting worse. One is almost the size of my fist. Smaller ones along his spine and neck. About 2 months ago he got a pulled edema under his belly along with a swollen sheath. Bute and exercise removed the problem. Within the last two week the swollen sheath came back and is so huge it won't retract. He's also dragging his hind feet. I put him back on Bute, cool water baths and am trying to get him to walk. Walking seems painful. Could this be cancer related? I live in Arizona. Our hot weather is here.

What's the dosage for a 1000 lb. horse? Thank you.
"Coltsfoot leaves (Tussilago farfara) Known historically as the "cough plant," coltsfoot can have anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and anti-catarrhal (eases inflammation of mucous membranes) properties and can be useful for respiratory tract disorders, particularly to relieve coughing".

Rosemary Trosper more than 6 years ago

Coltsfoot dosage and warning

The dosage for Coltsfoot is 1 teaspoon added to 8 oz of hot water, give twice daily. However, there are some cautions with coltsfoot now that may not have been known when this article was printed.

Look for the variety Tussilago farfara Wein, this coltsfoot plant has been cultivated to not have toxic PA's in it. PA's are pyrrolizidine alkaloids that can cause liver disease. If you cannot find this variety do not use Coltsfoots for more than 26 days.

Coltsfoot is cool and moist so will work best if your horse has a dry cough, with little to no mucous. Hope this helps!

Hi Shirley
My horses graze freely most of the time on grasses, fresh oats and herbs and weeds growing on our farm.
After our last rain I was surpriced at the amount of woodsorrel that came up. One of our paddocs probibly consists of 60% of it with a few grasses, weeds and fennel in between. Im a bit conserned about the amount they get in. Apparantly to much can be toxic and could cause kidney problems. I watched them while grazing and they dont realy eat it, but while looking for the other plants they do get some in.
I was just wondering, will they actually consume to much or will they be wise enough to know they should avoid it?
And do you maybe know how much could become problematic?

Thank you
Kind regards

Equine mare uterus infection resistant to all antibiotics

I have a mare that has a pseudomonas infection in her uterus that has become resistant to all antibiotics. Is colloinal Silver or any other holistic treatment recommended?

Maria Mandina more than 6 years ago

Antibiotic Resistance

Yes, it will take a lot more than that, at this stage, Chinese herbs and/or homeopathics well prescribed. Might even need some herbs infused directly, depends on how bad (but might be hard to get a vet to do it). Probably immune supplementation since she has had lots of antibiotics and her immune function is down.
