Protect your horse from deadly Hendra virus and get your 2nd dose of Hendra vaccine free* *Professional fees and/or travel costs apply. Until July 31 or while stocks last. Hendra virus is a potentially deadly viral disease that can be spread from horse to horse – and from horses to humans. There’s no known cure for Hendra but your vet has a vaccine that can help prevent it. Why protect against Hendra? Hendra virus disease is a known killer in Australia – of people as well as horses.1 And it’s spreading.1–2 Fruit bats (flying foxes) are the natural hosts of Hendra virus,1 and it’s thought that the virus is transmitted from fruit bat to horses via feed contaminated with fruit bat urine, faeces or body fluids.3 Hendra virus can be spread from horse to horse and horse to human through close contact with respiratory secretions and/or blood from an infected horse, so you may be at risk as much as your horse. 3 Why risk it? http://www.health4horses.com.au/hendrafreedose References 1.

This is one of the better articles I have seen about joint supplementation, quoting research rather than hearsay and sensationalism Although non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and intra-articular corticosteroids are still important for treating clinical lameness associated with OA, nutraceuticals such as joint supplements have become popular prophylactic (preventive) and conjunctive osteoarthritis therapies. These products, however, are not subject to the same extensive efficacy testing requirements as pharmaceuticals. via Joint Supplement Choices | TheHorse.com.http://www.thehorse.com/articles/31481/joint-supplement-choices Regards Walter Post your free Classified Ads at www.horseoz.com/forsale

First hurdle passed. Now he just needs to recover and stay in hospital for a few days. He has a tear in the meniscus and associated ligament but only minor damage to the cruciate ligament. So he has a 70 percent chance of returning to athletic performance in about 3 or 4 months. Now I just have to wait and hope.
