Why do horses crib?

Often people think that horses crib due to boredom.  In reality, horses crib to help with pain most commonly from ulcers.  Cribbing does two things:
  1. Cribbing releases endorphins which are the most powerful natural pain relief a body can produce.
  2. Cribbing increases the production of saliva which is a buffer for excess stomach acid.  In horses, stomach acid is produced 24/7 but saliva is only produced when a horse is chewing.  This is why so many of our domestic horses suffer from ulcers.   Read more »

What’s really in your dog’s food.

The AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) is a non-profit organization that sets standards for both animal feeds and pet foods in the United States.  Below is a list of a few ingredients you may see in common pet foods.  What may sound appetizing on a label in reality could really make your stomach churn – your pet’s too!

Girl Power at the 2013 Road to the Horse

The cowgirls mounted up for this year’s Road to the Horse competition.  The competition selects three or four elite horse trainers and clinicians and puts them up against each other for the title of Road to the Horse World Champion.

Over vaccination of animals and the adverse reactions

Often we mention like-minded professionals and veterinarians, we’ve even already done a profile on Dr. Jean Dodds and Dr. Karen Becker but the Healthy Pets video interview that was posted today is one that shouldn’t be missed if you are skeptical of vaccinating your pets or if you suspect your pet has had an adverse reaction to a vaccination.
