If the vet gets there and the horse has already done something bad enough to have surgery, BUT. The horse only had a 20% chance of surviving the surgery. What would you do?
He said that when most vets come in that kinda situation people do not have the decision made already. He said the vet he talked to said he's actually had to make the people make the decision because they kept prolonging it and then would change there mind.
I am trying to save up for an emergency like this but I unlike others, do not have my horses insured so I would be paying out of my own pocket. If my horse had a 20% survival rate that they would even pull through the surgery. I think I would go for it if money was there for it. Or even if I had to pay it off I think I'd still do it. Now if I were to talk to the vet and the vet gave me incite and advice on what to do. I trust my vet so..
BTW... I have a small question. My girls were moved to new pasture tonight until the gelding I am training goes home next Saturday. They are usually on hay 24/7 and grass when ever they want it. But it has never been this much grass. I've asked the people on the property that there at if they'd check on them at least once before they went to bed, I aim to go and check on them first thing in the morning too. Could they colic from this? Or will they be okay? (I'm actually worried about it... These are my girly girls. There family.).
