Re: [RC] Ulcer Treatments//To Scope or Not to Scope - Don Huston

Lets hear it for modern technology and the ability to actually physically look at a possible internal problem like ulcers by using a scope and be able to either completely rule out the problem or apply the proper treatment. There are still many areas where vets must rely on their experience and clinical skills but sometimes technology has given us some very valuable tools that help to make a very accurate diagnosis. If you really want to know if your horse has ulcers then use the scope. Then you can either apply treatment or if the horse scopes clean then look at other possibilities causing his symptoms.

In the old days we didn't have ultrasound, MRI, fiber optics, CT, PET,
electrolytes, Polartec, biothane, or spandex.
