[RC] saliva - sherman

Hi Teena,

 

You might want to do a Safeguard or Panacur purge (double dose every day for 5 days)on your horse, especially if he has no dental problems and is not gaining weight as quickly as you think he should for the amount of feed he is consuming. All my horses are keeping on weight better since I purged them last winter, kind of even hard to keep them from getting chubby. One of my 5 horses drools/slobbers quite a bit also, especially when he sees horse cookies. His teeth are fine.

Hi ridecampers

I am hoping that someone can help answer my question regarding my 4yr old arab gelding,  I just got him about 5 months ago and he is thin so I'm feeding him beep pulp, rice bran, safe choice and fast track. So he has put on some weight but not much, Anyways he seems to develop a lot of saliva than it drools out of his mouth, it seems to happen a lot more when he is round pen, lunged, or ridden (no bit).  I'm wondering if this is normal I've seen horses in dressage or show ring that do this and people say that the horse like the bit, well I'm not using any bit he just does it all the time even in pasture, so should I be concern about this or is this normal. Thanks for any info Sincerely Teena Padilla
