This diseased tooth was causing unilateral purulent nasal discharge in a mare for over a year. Dr Beetz extracted the tooth, packed the tooth socket with Technovit and flushed the left caudal maxillary sinus. #teamses #southernequineservice #equinedentistry #veterinarymedicine #equineveterinarian #horsedocs #horsedoctor #veterinarydentistry #aikensc @ Southern Equine Service

It’s dental month! Check out this image of a pony with a draining tract from his jaw. Radiographs allow us to asses the tooth roots and size of the abscess. Extraction of the associated tooth was recommended in this case. #teamses #southernequineservice #veterinarydentistry #veterinarymedicine

Don't Flake Out: Feed Horse Hay by Weight, Not by Flake - Kentucky Equine Research

An easy way to weigh hay (say that 3 times fast!) is with a garbage bag and a hanging fish scale. The weight of the bag is minimal and easily contains the hay being measured.

Some hay is fluffy and light, and weighs little; other hay is densely packed and weighs more than expected. So, it’s best to find a portable scale of some kind—a fishing scale is an easy-to-find solution—and measure several flakes from different bales, carefully noting each weight.

Last week some of our SES doctors had the opportunity to work with Kurt Selberg DVM MS DACVR. Dr. Selberg is a veterinarian who specializes in diagnostic imaging. He gave the doctors some pointers on using the newest ultrasound models. He also demonstrated the Tenex procedure. This procedure is a new technique that uses an ultrasound to guide the debridement of unhealthy/damaged tissue associated with a tendon or ligament injury. Because it is ultrasound guided, this procedure allows for the preservation of as much healthy tissue as possible, resulting in improved healing.

▪️Fasciotomy ▪️ Dr. Stinner performs a standing fasciotomy. This surgery is used to relive pain and lameness from suspensory ligament desmitis. The suspensory ligament is surrounded by connective tissue, tendons and bone. When the ligament swells, it has nowhere to go! This is very painful (similar to human compartment syndrome). In a fasciotomy surgery, the thick tissue around the suspensory is cut to relive pressure and offer pain relief as well. #teamses #southernequineservice #equineveterinarian #horsedocs #veterinarymedicine #suspensoryligament #veterinarytechnician #equinesportsmedicine

IF YOU FEED ROUND BALES, THIS POST IS FOR YOU!

As you're making plans for the colder weather ahead and your winter hay needs, you may be considering purchasing round bales due to their lower cost and greater convenience for feeding pastured horses.

While well-managed/stored round bales can still be a safe option for your horses, here a few important things for you to know:

• Round bales provide an optimum environment for the development of the botulism neurotoxins, which equines are particularly sensitive to. This toxin is produced when the clostridium botulinum bacterium is exposed to the right environmental conditions -- such as when forage materials are baled and stored while still damp, or when they include the carcasses of dead animals, like birds and mice. Botulism causes weakness, paralysis, and is usually fatal if left untreated. Because of the high death rate and the difficulty in diagnosing this disease, prevention through vaccination is critical, especially in areas where botulism is prevalent (such as Kentucky, Ohio, Maryland, Pennsylvania, California, and Tennessee).

• Horses prone to respiratory conditions usually have increased problems with round bales due to their higher dust content.

• A University of Minnesota study showed that horses eating round bales NOT placed in a feeder may have trouble meeting their energy requirements even when hay is present, because of contamination and waste from horses dragging and trampling forage.

• Not all hay is created equal: have your hay tested for nutrient content to ensure it meets the horse’s nutritional needs; check for mold, dust, and poisonous weeds before feeding. Establishing a good relationship with a reputable supplier will take you a long way.

As in all horse health issues, your local veterinarian is your best source of information. Consult your horse doctor today on best practices when feeding hay this winter, and on botulism prevention and treatment.

Something About A Horse: Equine Eyes. Join us this Wednesday at 6pm as we discuss common equine eye conditions. We’ll cover everything from chronic tearing to eyelid lacerations to degenerative eye diseases and more. If you’re a veteran horse owner, you know eye problems in horses are not uncommon and when it comes to treatment for an eye issue, the sooner the better. We’ll be sure to cover some basic trouble shooting so if your horse ever has an eye problem or injury you’ll know what to do. Hope to see you there! #teamses #southernequineservice #equinevet #horsedoc #equineophthalmology

Big shout out to Dr Mattie May! She was the only vet that I could find willing to come out this evening to take care of our sick horse. She was very professional and knowledgeable. We were not clients of Southern Equine Services before tonight, but will be in the future. Thank you again Dr Mattie!
Hey Doc, whatcha doin there? Got any cookies? 🤣
Big Thanks to Dr. Portia and Dr. Rachel Beetz Seyer. Our girl is looking much better this morning.
Not owning a horse in Aiken but desperately searching for a vet who would humanely attend to a “chicken” seriously in need of help, was like seeking the Holy Grail!!... Although officially closed, no doubt after a busy day, ‘Dr Ben’ came to the rescue. His compassion for this poor creature that had been abandoned, badly injured ( fractured leg) dehydrated and hungry, was second to none!!... so professional but kind, organized and so reassuring. Thank you, also to your assistant. With care and compassion in abundance for a small, rescued soul, I would recommend him time and time again to anyone requiring their beloved animals care to a local practice.💕
Big shout out to Dr. Carter!! Thank you for all your hard work getting Hammer back to being hammer. Still figuring out it didn't hurt but his 1st barrel gets better each time! Between the double bowed tendon, sore hocks and stifle i didn't think our guy would ever come back. He placed 3th in the 4d at the wbrl Jr finals in Fletcher NC today.
Anyone recognize this mare? She was loose on Colbert Bridge Rd. Someone passing by on the road let her in my gate. Large Pony/small horse. Scar on LF knee
No words can express the magnitude of this tragic loss!Honored to have had Rebekah Brady as my vet. She will truly and wholeheartedly be missed. ❤️
I am so grateful to the dedicated staff at Southern Equine! Team Portia kicked it up a notch and saved my Maddie from one of the nastiest colics I’ve ever witnessed. I thought for sure I would get the call on that stormy Saturday night that she was gone. But after three long nights in their care, she pulled through! Never underestimate the power of a mare! I want to thank all those people who supported me during this ordeal with texts, calls, prayers and words of encouragement, even some transcontinental Reiki!. My faith has gotten a much-needed shot in the arm 🙏🏻. I am forever touched by you all❤️
I was going to take one of our dogs on a short boat ride and she slipped out of collar and took off playing in the woods. PLEASE SHARE YALL & THANKS.
