This is a new thread to keep updates on Magic's baby. We have been calling her cute little names, but nothing is sticking for me. Any ideas or suggestions would be great. Thanks again and hopefully we can keep this thread drama free! Please and thank you. This is my first foal, aside from my Shetland's first baby, which was uneventful and very easy. Magic's has been good, with a few hiccups along the way...Been battling with diarrhea and her bottom has been scalded from it. I started probiotics, per the vet and it seems to have worked so far..this is the fourth day of probiotics for her. She started the loose stool at about 9 days but when it continued past 4 days I knew there was more to it. My vet told me to give her 10grams of probiotics and 500 lbs of safeguard/Panacur for 5 days...I was leery of worming her that much that young so I decided to try just the probiotics 1st. Through the whole ordeal she has been very alert, drinking, nursing, eating grass and hay, wagging her tail, running and no temp..I am curious to see if anyone else would worm her that much and this young?
Also been applying desatin 40% zinc to her bottom and it seems much better, been doing that twice a day. Will that scar or will her hair grow back after the irritation stops?
Thanks to all for any help in advance.
