    Joshie-thank you for your time, I wasn't trying to get anyone to diagnose my horse, he has been have problems one after another since we rescued him at 2 1/2 mth old. I thought I could come here and maybe someone could help me figure out the blood work we had pulled on him. I have talked to the vet a number of times, we have him on the new diet.
    He has never looked sickly, never under weight, only keeps having abscessing in the front right hoof, I requested the blood work. He went down almost 2 mths ago and couldn't get up, when he did get up he could hardly walk and was crossing his back legs.....
    AS for his breed, we don't know, he looks like the old qh horse breed, but I couldn't tell you for sure. Anyway, again thanks! I will figure out myself

    I'd worry if he is having problems with a non-healing wound. It could be caused by poor nutrition or kidney problems. It could be unrelated. If your vet isn't answering your questions then I'd look for a new vet.

    The calcium would be the only thing I would question on this bloodwork and as I said, it could be attributed to sample handling. So, your vet may not be giving you anything more in response because there is really nothing to comment on. Nothing in these results in and of themselves would be cause for concern.

    The high amylase may be nothing abnormal for your horse considering that we now understand that amylase levels in horses can vary greatly. And unless your horse is showing signs of GI disease is probably not something to worry about.
