:( ..... I just want to know if anyone else has had or has a horse with either of these things.....im hoping anf praying its IBD as this can be treated...he is my baby and im really worried about the results...any info or help would be much appreciated.....

I'm so glad it's a best case scenario!! Out of curiosity, what medication is he on? Here's hoping for a very speedy full recovery, so glad it wasn't the other option!
