After 2 breeding seasons spent at our Equine Reproduction Center, the 6 year old polo pony SHOW ME made her debut in the big leagues. First, in Palm Beach, Florida between 2011 and 2012 where she was ridden by renowned player, Lucas Criado. Then, in 2013 at the Hurlingham Open and the Argentine Open (Palermo), part of the triple crown of Argentina, the most important competition in the polo world. It was at these competitions where she was the center of attention!

What are summer sores?

What are summer sores?

“Summer sores” is a horseman’s term for a skin condition caused by larvae of Habronema or Draschia species worms. The adult worms of these species live on the inside wall of the equine stomach and do not migrate internally. In fact, most horses with gastric habronemiasis or Draschia species infestation do not show any clinical signs, a nd actual damage or impact to an adult horse is thought to be minimal. Heavy infestation in some individuals, however, has been known to cause stomach irritation and can even lead to perforation and possible stomach rupture.

On The Road Again

Earlier this summer, our Facebook and Twitter followers got a chance to see what it was like to spend a day with Peterson & Smith ambulatory vet, Dr. Bill Russell.  We started at the crack of dawn, and spent the entire day checking brood mares, doing coggins, and examining thoroughbred training horses. You can see our pictures from that day in our June album on Facebook.

What’s New in the Pharmacy: Gastrafate!

What’s New in the Pharmacy: Gastrafate!

The Peterson & Smith Pharmacy is carrying a new treatment for horses with Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome.  Equine Gastrafate (by Bioniche Animal Health) is a low cost, botanical based product that directly contacts and heals the mucosal lining.

Gastrafate uses a naturally occuring saccharide as it’s active ingredient. The saccharide allows enhanced coating and sticking to the muscosa when it is cross linked non-covalently in solution.
