Does anyone know what this horse disease might be called in modern times? Every source I find on it is from like, the 1800s. I don't know a thing about horses or horse medicine but I would very much like to de-orphan this page, either by linking to it or merging it elsewhere. ♠PMC(talk) 07:50, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

this source suggests it is basically some kind of abcess. It appeared to be mostly a problem with heavy draft horses, one snippet I cannot fully access suggested it may be linked to infections from an improperly fitted harness. One source said it was a “distemper” and I kind of wonder if they were describing pigeon fever. I don’t know the answer, but it is a very interesting question.

I also came across sources talking about pigeon fever and thought it might be the same, but I really know absolutely nothing on the topic and was not confident linking or merging without speaking to better-informed people. ♠PMC(talk) 09:12, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

WikiProject symbol[edit]

The following text was in the body of the main project page in the "Open tasks" section, but as it looks more like a part of a discussion, I've moved it to here instead rather than deleting it. DferDaisy (talk) 02:39, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

  • A symbol for this Wikiproject - Image:Esclapius stick.svg could be modified by adding a V to it, if anyone has talent in that direction. Otherwise, any appropriate free image would be good.
  • Hi, i recreated this symbol for Turkish project. May be interest you. My best compliments. --KediÇobanı🐈 08:40, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

Any support for changing the Rod of Asclepius at the top of the main page to this icon File:Wikiproject Vetrinary logo.svg? I think is more descriptive and less cryptic. DferDaisy (talk) 03:36, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Project navigation: Page tabs and new page for project participants[edit]

My aim is to make the project easier to navigate, so I've added page tabs to the project, and moved the list of participants to its own page. There were a few different tab templates available; I chose Template:Page tabs because it allows an external link (to the cleanup listing) in a tab. Template:Start tab is also available, and there are probably others. If these changes have not improved the navigation (or layout), or a different approach would be better, please let me know.

Looks good; I think there is a userbox as well as the project tag; many projects add a link to the project userbox so participants can put them on their userpages -- another way to find one another. Montanabw(talk) 23:17, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

  • I was bold and added it... also edited the UB, it had an awful color combo... Montanabw(talk) 00:41, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
I've added extra parameters to the userbox which adds participants to Category:WikiProject Veterinary medicine members, but I think you have to resave your user page in order to invoke these changes and appear in that category. DferDaisy (talk) 00:15, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Merger discussion for Addison's disease in canines[edit]


An article tagged in this WikiProject—Addison's disease in canines—has been proposed for merging with another article. If anyone is interested, please participate in the merger discussion. Thank you. DferDaisy (talk) 17:06, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Missing article or section: Prosthetic testicle[edit]

Will also need redirects from Prosthetic testis, Artificial testicle, etc., and plurals. I also posted this to WT:WikiProject Medicine, for the human side of things.

There's a lot of material out there on the human version, as well as the strange and semi-recent market for veterinary ones (predicated mostly on a projective and anthropomorphizing folk belief, especially among dog fanciers, that castrated male pets or livestock may suffer psychological trauma, though it sometimes has to do with maintaining the appearance of show animals).

There might be enough info around for a stand-alone article, but definitely enough for a subsection at Prosthesis. I don't presently have access to HighBeam and the other journal search stuff; forgot to renew that through WP:LIBRARY.

There is already an article about Neuticles, a specific brand of prosthetic testicles for dogs and other animals. Boghog (talk) 18:53, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Gas bubble disease[edit]

I have just created the article "Gas bubble disease". Please expand it as you see fit. Axl ¤ [Talk] 13:00, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
