I had the bedding all ready in the other small barn but she will not come out of this one. That also means no to hosing her down. She literally walks perfect to the doorway then refuses to budge an inch unless it's to go back in farther. :( her diarhea doesn't seem terribly bad actually it just appears that she did it mostly in one corner and then for whatever reason chose to lay there. Waiting a little longer before I totally move the straw to this barn.

Not Potomac. But still not good. Temp is at 101.2, severe diarrhea, a little dehydrated, n heart rate at 80. Gave her a few liters of IV fluids, banamine, and equigel I believe. Gonna get her some electrolyte water also. So no clue really.

Okay....so what is the vet's next step? What is he doing now? Gonna do a blood draw? U/S to check the status of the foal? Please tell me he didn't just say "I dunno what it is" and left.......if he did be calling in another vet in your area. Viruses or bacterial infections in preggo mares are pretty time sensitive. Get a vet to treat it properly asap....you risk losing the foal. That's an extremely high heart rate - points to either severe infection or severe physical pain.

He did draw blood and said if she gets any worse or isn't improving by Sunday that she needs to be moved to his office or the university for constant iv and observation. He did check the foal and it is fine, still plenty of movement. The equigel stuff is a probiotic type of binding agent for toxins/bacterium in the stomach. So just watching her closely now.
