Arie update- good news and bad news
Several days ago I posted that the vet thought Arie had kidney failure so I took him back and had blood drawn. The results say kidney function is great but his blood platelets are very low. The vet recommended I put him on Red Cell to build his blood, which I'm going to run out and get today. I also thought I'd add a pound of alfalfa pellets to his feed for more nutrition. Is that a good idea, or is a pound enough to do anything. I have to be careful so he doesn't founder again. I was going to start with one cup a day and work up to 4 cups a day, unless you think I can go faster.
All in all, I'm very relieved and feel I have my horse back. He still has a problem but its much better than kidney failure. If anyone has more ideas for building a horse's blood I'd love to hear them.
