The FreeRepublic Saddle Club thread! - Thread SIX
See our "who's who" page! ^

Posted on 06/01/2005 7:34:38 AM PDT by HairOfTheDog

*New* The FreeRepublic Saddle Club - Who's Who *pics*

This is a horse chat thread where we share ideas, ask for input from other horsemen, and talk about our riding and horse-keeping. We have a lot of different kinds of riders and horses, and a lot to share. In the previous threads we have had a great time talking through lessons, training, horse lamenesses, illnesses and pregnancies... and always sharing pictures and stories.

I always have a link to this thread on my profile page, so if you have something to say and can't find the thread in latest posts… look for it there and wake the thread up!

I also have a ping list for horse threads that are of interest, and Becky pings everyone most mornings. Let Becky (Paynoattentionmanbehindthecurtain) and/or me know if you would like to be on the ping list. As FreeRepublic is a political site, our politics and other issues will probably blend in…. There are many issues for horsemen that touch politics… land use, animal rights/abuse cases that make the news…. Legislation that might affect horse owners.

So... like the previous threads, this is intended as fun place to come and share stories, pictures, questions and chit-chat, unguided and unmoderated and that we come together here as friends. There are lots of ways of doing things and we all have our quirks, tricks and specialties that are neat to learn about.

To my knowledge West Nile is an individual shot still. Been two weeks since I saw the vet but it was then. I don't think it has been out long enough for be in a combination, plus there are arguements as to it's safety on pregnant mares (amongst horse people - vets say it's safe)

My server went belly up so I had to sign back on via AOL but what I posted was -

You need West Nile; a 4 or 5way vaccine which is the sleeping sickness, tetanus, flu vac; and you should keep on hand penicillen and tetanus antitoxin. These all need to be refridgerated.

This is a reasonable price for a feed store/tack store. That's why I order online because I just can't afford that for the number of horses I have.

I order through http://www.valleyvet.com

Ok. It looks like everything there except the West Nile. Do you have to have an RX? I see they have PCN so I'll pick some of that up too. Horses don't require rabies?
The reason I'm asking all of this is because I got caught off guard. I had no idea what all the vets had given. I want to do it myself so I know what all they get this time.

17.95. How long does it take to get here? A 10 dose vial would last me 5 years:')

You don't need a Rx for penicillen or tetanus. You would need one for Banamine which is a good thing to have on hand. That's about the only prescription med that I can think of that you might want to keep around. No - I take that back, Bute is a good thing to have on hand too.

Your vet would have only given yearly vacs, which is the 5-way or 4-way (all the flu stuff) and now, West Nile.

Horses generally don't require rabies.

It is shipped overnight. I just ordered tonight so it will be shipped tomorrow and I'll receive it on Friday. You wouldn't want a 10 dose vial - two single dose syringes are all you need so figure $32 with the shipping.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by 4-5 way. I'm looking at the first one at valley vet. Fluvac Innovator 6 (3 way s sick, tet, flu, rhino). The only one I see that says 4 way is a rhino only. What are you counting?

To: CindyDawg

You want one that has the sleeping sickness (2-3 types), tetanus, and flu. The one you are looking at is fine, I just don't vaccinate for rhino so I would use the Innovator 4 if I were using Ft Dodge. I just ordered Encevac TC-4 + VEE which is about the same thing. It's #25073.

Ok. I got the immz. You order the antitoxin tet don't you because they get the toxoid in the vaccine, right? Whay kind of PCN do most use?. There are about 6 brands.

I get the antitoxin to have on hand in case of a serious injury, rusty nails, wire, etc. Check the dosage on the penicillen and just get whatever is cheapest for the dosage. I generally pick it up at the feed store and get whatever is on hand but that's because I don't get it until I run out and you never know when that will be.

I'm sorry it takes me so long to reply to you here, I don't get around in AOL very well.

In Texas, horses do need rabies vaccine. Every animal on my farm gets rabies vaccine: goats, big horses, little horses, donkey and of course, dogs and cats. I've already had 2 cases of rabid skunks hanging around my house in the last year. My husband killed them and we had them tested, they were positive for rabies.

No but I have to get the W Nile from him. Rabies wasn't on the list that he quoted me either. I'll have to ask about that today too. They overnight the vaccines so there was a 12 dollar shipping charge. The same vaccine was 17.95. The feedstore was 21.95.

Hello,

Just hanging around a bit, Blake is sacked out on the couch. We will run a few errands in town, then come home and ride.

What time is your Lippazaner show? Will it be late before you get home with pictures:)?

Becky

I bet it will be pretty late. It's at 7:30 in the evening... couple hour show probably and an hour home.... all in Pacific time. So we'll post them late, and all but the night owls will probably see them in the morning!

Hi Sharn! I thought I'd post these for you. This is a cabin that's down the road from the guy who owns the stallion that I'm having Truly bred to this week. I just love this place. They've been working on it a couple of years and it's not finished yet so it must be a second home for someone...

The big red barn is out in front by the road and off to the left of the house...

I zoomed in a little more for this one so you could see a little more detail...

I have Ace but I'd never recommend that to a novice horseman because the reactions can sometimes be unpredictable. There is the occassional horse that goes bonkers with it. It's always my drug of last choice.

My understanding on rabies is that it has to be given by a vet so that the records are available - I'm not sure how it works there and with horses.

Yeah, it's that way in Alabama too. The vet supply catalogs have a whole list of states that they won't ship rabies vaccines to, so you could tell that way. My vet won't even let me take a rabies vaccine home with me and give it myself. He says he wants to perform the vaccination so that he knows that it was properly given in case there is any problem. I can't blame him coz it'd be his butt that'd be on the line if the horse turned up with rabies.

I talked to the house vet. Rabies are separate but he recommends them in this area. He has to give it though, as you say. He's gonna bring me 2 W Niles when he comes out. I don't really know what the big deal is though. It's not manditory so why the records? They didn't get it last year.

Killed rabies vaccine, safe for dogs, cats and horses. For horses inject 2 ml IM at 3 months of age or older. Revaccinate annually. Order syringes separately. Not for sale in the states of AK, AL, AR, CA, CT, GA, HI, ID, IL, IN, KS, MD, ME, MN, MO, MS, MT, NC, NE, ND, NV, NJ, NM, NY, OR, RI, SC, TN, TX, UT, WA, WV and WY. In addition, some local laws require that a licensed veterinarian administer rabies vaccine. Do not order Rabies vaccine unless you find that you can legally administer the vaccine to your animals.

Who is here that isn't on the banned list?

You guys are making my head swim with all this talk of deciding on vaccines. There are probably many instances where I just follow my veterinarian's lead (and it has nothing to do with him being cute) and which vaccines, in which combinations, and from what company is definately one of them. Heck... I'm not qualified. I don't know what they need, I've never had a horse catch any of these diseases, nor really known anyone who has... save strangles...

I'm giving what the vet says they need but I'm in charge this time. There won't be another occasion when my horses gets sick and I don't know what they have been vaccinated for. I'm trying to save a little money and learn some stuff too (grin).
