    I 'saved' this info website a while back when we were discussing Vitamin A on a similar thread - the toxicity level in horses for Vit. A is 544IU per 1000 pound of bodyweight which amounts to 10 times the recommended dose given on supplements
    When feeding any supplement you have to add in what the horses is already getting from other sources and whatever feeds you're using
    This is the link as its quite interesting

    As horse owners we may be fairly well informed about what has had positive results with our own horses/situations. I just don't think we should be doling out medical advise to others ie practising veterinary medicine without a license. The OP should be researching, published medical material, not asking medical advise on a forum.

    As an example of alternative view - In the UK many vets have very limited knowledge on barefoot horses and often resort to shoeing advice as that is all they are taught. In recent years the advice from collective knowledge on the internet has revolutionised barefoot information and led to it becoming an increasingly popular option as a treatment for several hoof issues. Researching existing published medical information on this would have drawn a blank as rehabbing a horse (say for navicular) by going barefoot was almost unheard of here. Sadly vets do not know everything and not all good information has been published, but of course one should always check and research as much as possible any information your receive from all sources.

    Correction- 454 IU per pound of body weight, according to the source you linked.

    For comparison, that would be 454,000 IU for my 1000 lb horse. His recommended daily intake (from FeedXL.com) is 30,000 IU per day. I'd say there's a little wiggle room there

    AGAIN, I am not asking what to do I am asking for suggestions to bring up to the vet. Also to see if my concerns are valid. I see the symptoms as being related where my barn owner seems to blow them off as nothing.

    Thanks for correcting - if I'm too lazy to put my glasses on (actually go and search for them) I am really good at making mistakes like that!!!
