Anyone heard of a bladder infection in foals?
My seven week old filly has been every so slightly off for the past week. (Why not, I need another vet bill...) bear with my - typing on my phone. Our power is out
from a storm, I have been researching online a bit and come up very empty handed. So I thought id ask here.
She has never been one to lay down much, which I thought odd because babies are always sleeping. But she isn't an overly active foal either. I never could get a cute bucking/playing/bouncing baby picture. She just doesn't do it. She will run if mom runs and that's it. This has been normal for her.
Well this past week she's been laying down a lot. I thought maybe she finally kicked the "sleeping baby" part in. But she gets harder and harder to get up which IS unusual for her very social self. When she's up she is quieter and not pesty but she's a nice manored baby anyway so its tough to say. She eats well, drinks well, helps with moms grain, comes right over if she's up etc. But she just looks under the weather (expression wise)
Yesterday and today I noticed after she pees she stands in the "trying to pee" stance for about a minute after. Like I said, I've been usuing my phone but came up empty handed googling anything. Does this sound like a foal bladder infection?
