Mission, accountability and unshakable goals are keys to successful New Year’s resolution.

by Robin Martinez

With the New Year ahead, many people will be making resolutions about diet and exercise. Most of these resolutions will fizzle, not because those making them didn’t really want them to happen but because either their expectations are unrealistic (like believing that exercise is the best way to lose weight) or because they don’t have a structure in place that will support them as they make these new ideas a permanent part of their daily life.

Standing computed tomography arrives in Southern California at San Luis Rey Equine Hospital.

San Luis Rey Equine Hospital adds computed tomography (CT, or “cat scan”) to their advanced diagnostic imaging capabilities. The hospital in San Diego County’s Bonsall is currently one of two clinics in North America successfully performing standing CT scans of the equine skull. This includes visualization of the brain, sinuses, nasal cavities and teeth, all without the superimposition, which greatly hampers standard radiography. With the installation design at SLREH, imaging of the skull is possible without the need for general anesthesia.

My horse recently had a bout of colic. He recovered fully, but I’ve been told that once a horse colics, he’s more likely to colic again. Is that true? And if so, why?

Availability of advanced diagnostic equipment grows in California.

Magnetic resonance imaging machines that scan a horse’s lower legs while the horse is standing have revolutionized the world of lameness diagnosis. “It is almost the standard of care,” says Dr. Carrie Schlachter, VMD and medical director at Circle Oak Equine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation in Petaluma. Availability seems to be the technology’s only drawback, and, happily, that’s changing. Dr. Schlachter is “very excited” to be adding the standing MRI, or “sMRI,” to Circle Oak Equine, where it will debut along with a new surgery center on June 1. (With a formal unveiling of both on June 10, see sidebar below.)

Understanding the difference between these concepts is important.

by Chris Irwin

When working with our horses on the ground or in the saddle, if we “let a horse go” when we needed to “make a horse go” then the horse will not respect us. On the other hand, if we “make a horse go” when we needed to “allow a horse to go” then it will not trust us.

All of my horses are now retired from competing and I keep them at home where there aren’t other horses coming in and out of the barn. Do I need to continue to vaccinate them on the same schedule they had when they were competing, or can I scale it back now that they aren’t coming into contact with other horses?
