Can a hore get to much salt? And would it give Diarrhea?
See we didnt have a place for the salt block in the stall at the moment so we just put it in his feed bucket and well he went through it pretty quick (We've moved it now). Plus he's on a ration balancer, Min a vite lite by blue seal which has 4.6% salt in it and he gets about 1/2 scoop twice daily. Since he's has kind of loose stool and lots of water afterwards, we've been cleaning his tail, butt and legs like every other day.
Could he be getting to much salt? Would that cause diarrhea? I asked the vet she just said change his food I forgot to ask about the salt..
Does anyone have any suggestions for a different feed for a very very easy keeper. He's gained 20lbs and he's just on this ration balancer.. and like 2 flakes of hay a day.
