We have been having a time here! Now my sweet Duke got sprayed by a skunk!! 😳
He was running around our 10 acre property and came back to the house with a swollen eye and foaming at the mouth. That is not what you would like to see with your dog. OK… what the heck happened… I didn’t exactly know what happened or honestly what to do. So the only thing I could think of was to throw him in the shower and rinse out his mouth and his eye so I could evaluate him. I rinsed him for about five minutes. It apparently worked because his red agitated gums returned to normal and he stopped foaming at the mouth. I called the emergency vet just to see what the recommendation was. They recommended the same protocol that I did. I mixed hydrogen peroxide baking soda and dish soap and gave my dog a bath with that mixture followed by conditioner. After monitoring his vitals Duke is fine now eating and drinking. I wasn’t planning on a skunk air freshener in the house tonight!! Wow that is potent.

ALWAYS CARRY A FIRST AID KIT! My dog Daisy was stung by fire ants on our hike. She was very agitated trying to chew at her paw and limping all the way back. I could tell she was in much discomfort when she got into the truck. She was still vigorously chewing at her paw and panting and breathing heavily. I had my first aid kit with me. I used essential oils for insect bites applied topically, hydrocortisone for itching applied to paw and a dog pain pill. After the treatments took effect she was fine. I did monitor her vitals and she was eating and drinking. I also carry a beef jerky stick in my pack so I can administer the pain pill with food.

Body condition influences everything in your horse’s life, from reproductive efficiency, to performance, to good health.

By using Body Condition Scoring, you can find out what kind of shape your horse is in, and work to improve the score. Scoring focuses on critical areas of the body, based on palpable fat and visual appearance.

IDEAL HORSE BODY CONDITION SCORES

Most horses, including performance horses and growing horses, should be in a body score of 5-6. For optimum reproductive efficiency, broodmares should be a 5-7, and not allowed to lose condition such that they are below a 5 during breeding season. Horses over a condition score of 7 may be at a greater risk for developing metabolic disorders such as insulin resistance.

A. Along the Neck

B. Along the withers

C. Crease down back

D. Tailhead

E. Ribs

F. Behind shoulder
