Avatar n tn Also I know its apain and you may not have the skill to do all of this but you may want to start a chart on all your horses for awhile say 2 weeks. Do an exam am and pm and chart your findings. Clear eyes? nasal discharge? Mouth sores?Pulse,resperation and temp along w/ any abnormal things you may observe.(Horse A leaves feed in AM only on Tue and Wed) This might help you find whatever your cronic problem is. Also this info should be helpful to your vet.
Avatar f tn Horses can lose weight for a variety of reasons. It is concerning that your horses are losing weight rapidly, and even dying. About food.. Have you weighed it out? The amount of food you feed one horse in a day should be about 2.5 percent of the horses' body weight (the weight you want teh horse to be). For a 1200 pound horse , that would be about 8.2kg (18.0lbs) of forage (hay) per day, and 5.5kg (12.0lbs) of concentrates(grain) per day. You should aways feed more hay than grain .
Avatar n tn If he has these spots and they are where the saddle is, they are probably saddle sores. Also, if he is thin,he really shouldn't be ridden as he hasn't enough strength or muscle to handle this job. As for his weight, As a general guideline, the total weight of feed per day for adult horses should be between 1.5% and 3.0% of your horse's body weight (depending on activity level).
1903798 tn?1333905288 I already have connective tissue spasticity issues and now am getting charlie horses. I woke up with one in my calf a few days ago that was so tight I broke out into a sweat. Last night I had one in my behind muscle and today my thigh. Can this be the chiari too?
Avatar n tn Sweetie, the horse is old. Many don't live that long, and horses, like humans, often drop weight and get frailer as they get older. If you haven't brought in any new animals that would expose her to parasites, or anything, then it's probably not that. Is she getting all of her own feed, since she is with other horses? Make sure she isn't being pushed out by the other, younger, stronger horses that she is boarding with. If that's possible, try feeding her alone.
334876 tn?1229979296 Oooohh! Touchy! Touchy! Touchy! Well, obviously she doesn't have a clue about weight limits of horses, but being a kid, that would be understandable. Are her parents horse people? Perhaps you could *kindly* mention your concern to them. Perhaps you, or your son, could also *kindly* mention to her that you think those l-o-n-g rides are too much for the horse and just make sure when your son goes out with her that they don;t go out for such long rides.
Avatar n tn If you are concerned about weight try beat pulp, it is often used to help thin or older horses gain weight. However you need to make sure that you fix it correctly as it is something you need to soak in water to expand it and make it correctly. Your horse may not like the taste of it, it's rather bland so mix it in with some feed to make it tastier.
Avatar n tn I wouldn't listen to the weight chart thing, I'm nearly 35 weeks amd ever since a set up this app it has been telling me av been gaining too much weight, av never worried as think it is probably better to be gaining to much than not enough.
783304 tn?1283395088 I was just wondering if there was a way to go back to my weight tracker in 2009? It kept my info of my starting weight and my goal but I can't seem to see my chart.
Avatar m tn My husband was diagnosed with cirrhosis 18 months ago and has had 7 varices banded since then. He has completely quit drinking and chewing tobacco. 3 months ago he went in for a check up and the doctor said he had 2 small varices banded. The doctor said they were small and really didn't need to band them, but since he was in there decided to band them. He placed him on the standard 15 lb weight limit.
Avatar f tn I have owned and rode horses all my life. I am having difficulty coping with not being able to ride because ppl told me I cant. Is it seriously that big a deal to ride? I don't want to hurt my baby, but it's literally the only thing I have done for myself and can't deal with giving it up for so long...
Avatar m tn For example, if you have 4 horses, put out 6 piles, well spaced apart, so that each gets a pile and one or two horses don't hog the area, running off others.

Avatar m tn How many calories are you eating each day? Maybe you aren't getting enough calories; or maybe you just need to vary your calorie intake/exercise routine a bit. Sometimes, if you do the same thing all the time, your body becomes used to it and it's no longer a challenge.
Avatar f tn She was fed hay and 16% feed while pregnant and still began to lose her own weight. The baby was born very fat and healthy, now 5 months later, the baby continues to be a chubby one, but the Mama has gone down severely. Her hips and ribs are showing. We are feeding her a 14% feed mix twice a day along with hay and rye grass. She started falling about a week ago and requires help getting up with a tractor and straps.

Avatar f tn That depends on your frame size, as well as your age. Your frame size is how large your bones are. Here's a bit of height weight chart, that pertains to your height, but only if you are an adult female. If you're not an adult, the figures would be different.
Avatar f tn ve got a lot of these but it would be fantastic if you could put all your weight tracker data in one page for printing, sending or saving.
Avatar f tn The chart on this website says I am above the normal weight is that a bad thing? I was underweight before getting pregnant.

Avatar m tn s not a good idea to start with heavy weight right on. So when you start you should be doing 2X12 or 15 with light weight then gradually increase weight then go for 3X12 and when you feel comfortable you can go for mass building which is 2X6 or 7 with heavy weights. To know what is the appropriate weight you have to be barely able to lift the 6th or 7th repetition. If you have no problem doing all the 7 repetitions then it's time to add weight.

Avatar n tn Hi, my husband's height is 5'11", 32 years old and his weight is 107kg. Will you please suggest a complete effective diet chart and a exercise routine to loose at least 7 kg within a month. He has to work a lot. So only one hour he can spend on his exercise time. So what will be the effective exercises on that one hour. And please again suggest a complete diet chart and routine of the whole day meal.
