Me parece extraordinaria esta pagina,es un canal divulgativo de la experiencia en medicina veterinaria en cuanto al tratamiento y seguimiento clinico
Here's a video on how to apply a Kimzey Leg Saver splint as demonstrated by Dr. Larry Galuppo, Chief of Equine Surgery at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. Though we hope you will never need to use it, it has the potential to save a horse with a fractured leg.

Do you have an overweight horse? Chances are he is insulin resistant. Excess body fat leads to elevated insulin, and elevated insulin leads to more body fat storage; which leads to greater insulin resistance, and the vicious cycle continues.

Learn how diet plays an important key to improving insulin resistance in the link below:

"The closer you get to a feeding environment that simulates a natural setting, the healthier your horse will be. Give your horse a chance to be a horse, and let him tell you how much forage he needs.”

Participants are needed for equine guided workshops and a pilot study. To gain a better understanding on how to better support individuals affected by dementia or MCI, we are hosting a series of workshops with horses for people living with early stage dementia.

We are looking for individuals who have a diagnosis of early stage dementia or MCI to participate with their primary care partners. No prior experience with horses is necessary, see the flyer for more information or share this post with someone you know!

So interesting!

Different surfaces (dirt, synthetic, turf) are known to affect the risk for injuries:
• too hard – bone, joint, hoof injuries
• too soft, ...yielding – soft tissue injuries
• irregular surface – acute injury, tentative performance

As elite athletes, performance horses are susceptible to overuse injuries from repetitive stresses, intense training and competition schedules, and the impacts of different surfaces. Specific factors contributing to leg injuries involve:

Flooding is the most common and costly disaster experienced by U.S. citizens. Flooding can be dangerous not only for horses but for ranchers and their employees as well.

Great news for Haflinger owners! The UCD Equine genetic and ophthalmology teams worked together to develop a screening test for ocular squamous cell carcinoma in Haflingers. This test will help horse owners and veterinarians to identify horses who are at the highest risk of developing this cancer. Earlier identification of this cancer could lead to a better prognosis for these animals. Further, using these test results in breeding decisions could lower the incidence of this cancer in the breed.

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common type of tumor in the horse and the most frequent tumor of the horse’s eye. Several factors thought to increase risk for this cancer include, among others, UV exposure, pigmentation and genetics. The Haflinger breed has a higher reported inciden...

    It's very disturbing lately been hearing alot of bad things about th...e school I went to years ago. I've come many times through the years bringing my animals for treatment and gotten the best care and attention one could hope for. Has this university gotten so big that it can't have the customer care it once had??? It scares me that I may be looking for alternative place to go that's affordable and reliable. Been hearing horror stories too multiple to list. I was shocked!! Here's one : Davis vet hospital is striking out I don't think the patient care could get any worse..... I have spent so much time and money with them and they treat me and my horse like we are nothing! They do not have my best interest or my horses best interest at heart and certainly not my check book! I asked ONE dietary question related to my horse feed and treatment plan based of their unproven diagnosis and recommendations and they respond with the dietician cost 200$ are you kidding me?! If you cannot provide basic education and better future practices to help an individual provide for their patient then you are in THE WRONG BUSINESS..... no one in the right mind would continue to see a human Dr if this was their child and the treatment they were receiving..... I'm disgusted since when is everything else more important than patient care and basic education of good practices! I can't wait for this ordeal to be over...... they are horrible at communicating and not being proactive at all in the process of ruling out what could be ailing my horse or showing any willingness to even slightly educate for better patient care.... AND YOU CALL YOURSELF AND PRIDE YOURSELF AS A TEACHING HOSPITAL.... MORE LIKE A JOKE See More
