“Kissing Spines is a condition where the dorsal spinous processes are too close together,” Dr. Cliff Honnas, equine veterinarian, surgeon and founder of the widely respected Texas Equine Hospital in Bryan, Texas.
explains simply. “These are the bones that make up the backbone of the horse directly underneath the saddle.”

While there are numerous conditions impacting the equine back, the diagnosis of Kissing Spines has increased fairly dramatically in recent years thanks to improved diagnostic techniques coupled with a greater focus on veterinary education.

Prisma’s imaging technology will be a huge help in diagnosing horses that may have Kissing Spines and monitoring their condition throughout its management.

14/01/2021

It is important for riders to understand the physical effect that their aids have directly on the horse’s body as a whole and realize that incorrect use of our aids (such as backwards use of the hand) can make it impossible for the horse to become supple through the back and able to work correctly and also, that long-term use of such aids can lead to serious lameness and behavioral problems.

The position and length of the horse’s neck, through its many anatomical interconnections with the trunk, has a direct biomechanical effect on the back. If the head is placed unnaturally deep or the neck is unnaturally shortened it will inevitably lead to movement faults and eventual health problems.

The purpose of dressage training is to gymnasticise the horse, to make him stronger and in better balance as well as obedient to the aids of the rider.

Prisma Montage for Asthma Post

In one recent study of adult horses with equine asthma, Researchers found that patients were on average, younger than 10 and those horses were actively participating in reining, barrel racings, trail riding and dressage. About 50% of those asthmatic athletes were “competitive” per the owner rather than pleasure mounts (Leclere et al., 2018).

Here are a few more tips for keeping your horses safe and healthy during the winter:
1. When blanketing be sure to check for any changes in body condition and keep an eye out for any skin issues due to bacteria growth under the blanket.
2. Be smart about clipping. If clipped, blanket appropriately and pay attention to fluctuating temperatures.
3. Be very cautious about ice on surfaces where the horses walk, either to get to turnout or within their turnout. Keep snow/ice melt handy when needed.

Prisma has come to mutually agreeable terms with Littleton Equine Medical Center to be a recipient of Prisma’s robotic imaging system! This agreement further validates the equine veterinary community’s demand for Prisma’s novel technology that produces full-body imaging of a conscious and standing horse.

“We’re excited by the prospect of performing more comprehensive diagnostics and delivering even more exceptional patient care made possible by the technology in Prisma’s system,” Dr. Kelly Tisher, DVM, owner and managing partner of Colorado-based Littleton Equine.

Here are some tips on caring for your horses during these cold months:
1. While horses are actually built for the cold, you should provide adequate shelter to protect them from the wind and moisture.
2. Horses expend significantly more calories trying to keep warm in the cold. Make sure they get enough calories to help with this. High quality hay should be the staple.
3. One of the major causes of colic in the winter is an impaction caused by inadequate water intake. Be sure to provide plenty of fresh water.

Prisma% social% whisker

The FEI recently banned the practice of trimming a horse’s whiskers and many veterinarians and scientists are excited about this decision. Roly Owers, MRCVS, CEO of World Horse Welfare, in Norfolk, U.K and Machteld van Dierendonck, PhD, who’s associated with the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at Utrecht University, the Netherlands, explain that whiskers play an important sensory role and are needed, especially in a domesticated environment. Dierendonck’s review of collected data suggests that horses with shortened whiskers might have had a slightly greater tendency to incur more head injuries than otherwise.

Researchers recently discovered that contrary to popular belief, laminitic horses shift their weight off the toe onto the middle of the foot more than the heel. They discovered this by using high-tech pressure-reading equipment on horses at a walk. This means that therapeutic shoeing should also support the middle of the hoof and not just the heel, said Mohamad Al Naem, DrMedVet, at the Equine Clinic (surgery, orthopedics) at Justus-Liebig-University in Giessen, Germany.

Here are some fun facts about the sport of Reining:
- It came from Old West culture where horses were a vital part of every working livestock ranch. Horses needed to be sturdy, quick, responsive and agile to herd cattle and other livestock.
- Reining competition movements are highly refined as the horse has to perform 180 to 360 degree spins on the spot and slide to a stop from a gallop within seconds.

We are excited to announce that after Brooke USA's best #GivingTuesday to date, we were inspired to gift match! Prisma Imaging saw the tremendous collective that raised the final funding for Brooke USA’s Buy A Donkey A Drink program, and our owner and founder Michael Silver, was motivated! He has pledged a match of $2,500 through Brooke USA’s Power of ONE campaign. This means that your donation to Brooke USA for end of year will make double the impact when you give now!

Prisma developed the first-ever functional full-body equine imaging system for a standing, conscious horse, addressing the shortcoming of current imaging technology. The resulting system, which does not necessitate the use of anesthesia, represents a game-changer for the overall effectiveness of diagnostics and a safer, healthier and quality of life for our equine partners.

Michael Silver said, “My goal is to give back, and help equines both here and abroad that need our technology for a more humane exitance and to continue to be an essential, effective resource. For Brooke USA, I see a future where we work in tandem as partners to raise the funds needed to address the health and welfare of working equines. This match is only the beginning!”

Commercial installations of the system will begin in late 2021.

Prisma has come to mutually agreeable terms with B.W. Furlong & Associates to be the recipient of Prisma’s first robotic imaging system! This agreement represents a significant milestone that validates the equine veterinary community’s demand for Prisma’s novel technology that produces full-body imaging of a conscious and standing horse.

“It’s undeniable that Prisma’s system’s capability to perform distal limb and head C.T. imaging of a conscious horse, plus image the axial skeleton and abdomen represents a material advancement for equine diagnostics and their health and welfare,” said B.W. Furlong’s founder Brandan Furlong, MVB MRCVS. “We’ve been able to monitor and vet the progress of the system’s development and are excited by the prospect of getting their inaugural system. We’re equally enthusiastic about having this technology to perform more comprehensive diagnostics and deliver exceptional patient care.”

Dr. Emmanuelle Van Erck Westergren of Equine Sports Medicine Practice in Waterloo, Belgium stresses, “Respiratory health is essential to performance.”

Many people don’t realize that horses breathe through their noses and their narrow upper airway and the long distance to their lungs makes it easier for them to become oxygen deficient.

Nuclear Scintigraphy involves injecting a radioactive substance into the horse and then using a gamma camera to scan the body to reveal “hot spots” which often indicate a potential malady. However, while it is an effective means to detect a potential issue, it does not provide the details that are necessary for an effective, complete diagnosis. Another issue is that since the horse is radiated, it must be quarantined in a special facility until the radiation disburses.

18/11/2020

With MRI, magnetic fields produce 3-D cross sectional images that provide high-quality detail of both bone and soft tissue. Some practitioners believe that it should be used earlier in the diagnostic process as it has a greater chance of detecting injuries or latent defects and may in the end save both time and money for the client. However, it is the most expensive imaging modality and obtaining diagnostic quality images often requires the horse to be anesthetized and therefore has greater risks for the patient.
