As we enter the cooler winter months the grass in South Carolina goes dormant, but horses still need to consume ~1.5-2% of their body weight in forage per day.   One option to provide more forage throughout the winter is to over seed the pasture with a cool season grass such as win

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.
