Headshaking in the horse is a common problem and often affecting up to 30% of patients to variable levels, creating high frustration for the horse owner.

Headshaking can vary in regards to presentation from simple flaring of the nostrils, flipping of the nose, rubbing the nose, snorting often, sneezing and even variable degrees of overt head shaking. Given the wide range of presentation,potential causes, lack of consistent treatment response and frustration factor for the horse owner, headshaking deserves some investigation for better management options. As is my character, let’s dig into what we know regarding headshaking and see if we can not only make sense of it, but also discover potentials for therapy. (more…)
One of the most common problems in the equine athlete and pleasure horse is recurring lameness, which can be equally frustrating for owner, rider, and the veterinarian. At one moment, the issue may seem resolved, bringing relief, but then it may recur or maybe even a new problem develops. Being a veterinarian, horse owner and involved in the rehabilitation of horses, I understand the frustration but have come to realize that there is much to discover, learn and reveal when it comes to seeing the ‘entire’ horse in these situations.

Being an equine veterinarian, researcher of health and observer for over 18 years, I have come to some personal conclusions as to what seems to work when it comes to improving the health of our equine companions. I feel that optimal health can be achieved, but that doesn’t always mean extravagant living conditions or huge expense. In fact, some of the healthiest horses that I have seen as a veterinarian were those kept in large pastures with minimal man made housing, but plenty of food and attention by the owner.
Curcumin, the “Indian Solid Gold” is one of the most cherished spices in the world. Health is something we all take for granted, but did you know that Curcumin taken daily can bring about dramatic health changes for the positive? Whether if you suffer from chronic joint pain, lower back pain or overall stiffness, benefits can be seen. In horses, we battle with joint deterioration, back complaints and overall unsoundness, chasing these conditions with expensive remedies combating something that could be better managed from another standpoint. Even in horses, dramatic changes can be evident, often creating confusion as to how something so simple can have such far reaching effects. Pets are no different, suffering from the same clinical maladies that affect humans. They too can benefit immensely, restoring healthy, vitality and a quest for life. So, why is this herb so wonderful?
