This is what Chinga currently looks like, with his stylish hair cut.

That's how it was when my mare had enteritis. They had to keep a nasal tube in her & keep her stomack emptied. She was diagnosed via ultrasound which showed a thickening of the small intestines. She was kept on IV fluids & given meds for the infection. She made a complete recovery.
Maybe it wasn't a mass your vet was feeling but a full stomach?
I'm glad you're not giving up.

An update, sigh. So it's not as good as I'd liked it to be. Thing is, I really have nothing to tell you all.

Today he wasn't as bright, didn't produce as much manure and spent the day sulking around in his stable. So a bit of a fall there. But he seems to brighten up when we come visit him, which is quite a bit. He's blood tests were taken today, so we'll know something tonight or tomorrow morning from them and the sample which was taken.

He's doing okay though, his stable. He's also got the best care possible there, so now we just wait.

And waiting can be terrible. Sending good energy and positive thoughts your way.

I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!

What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.

This needs a dislike button, well the first part anyways.

Hoping poor chinga feels better soon!

Quick update, just got the word from the vet. His able to come home tomorrow, antibiotics and checking his heart rate, etc for the next month.

I'll know more once I directly speak to the vet. That's all my mother told me, I'm in class at school. I'll update around 5pm tonight.
