The Horse Side Vet Guide smartphone app is a one-time $5 fee - and the VERY COOL thing is that it keeps getting better and better - more and more valuable to YOU - as we add content and images.

Here is another image we just added to the QUICK REFERENCE section - In this image, I try to show you the most important muscular and tendinous structure of the horse's hind end. A handy reference when you are discussing an equine health-related issue at the barn, on the trail or at an event.

We continue to add to Horse Side Vet Guide almost every day, and those of you with the app continue to have a resource that gets better and better!

We just added two new muscle images to QUICK REFERENCE. That means that these images are always on your phone, with or without Internet, for your reference!

Here is one of the new images. In this image, I try to show you the most important muscular and tendinous structure of the horse's leg, when viewed from the side.

Please give me some feedback. Do you like this image? Any suggestions?

You walk out to feed your horses and your favorite horse is non weight bearing lame. The most common cause of severe, sudden, unexplained lameness is Sole Abscess. Here is what is written in Horse Side Vet Guide. http://horsesidevetguide.com/…/48/sole-foot-or-hoof-abscess/

Recently, a Horse Side Vet Guide follower suggested that horse owners should learn to give IV injections. I don't think its a good idea. Here's why:
It's not hard to learn, but it is EASY to make a mistake that could cost your horse its life. If you manage 30+ horses on a daily basis, you may have a reason to learn to give IV injections. In that case, you will get enough practice doing it to develop confidence. BUT, If you only practice it once or twice a year, the risk is too great!
I have seen horse people kill their horses trying to give IV injections, when they were not skilled pr practiced enough. See how close the carotid artery is to the jugular vein? One of the goals of this illustration I made in Horse Side Vet Guide is to point out how close those two vessels run together. If you inject into the carotid, the medication goes straight to the brain, causing seizure like brain activity. Here is a little something I wrote about that. http://horsesidevetguide.com/…/…/791/intracarotid-injection/
