Mucking out the stalls this morning and one of the geldings has diarrhea. It's not terrible but it's noticable (or I'm just the paranoid-momma-type). He's not acting odd, eating fine, drinking fine. No changes to diet. Ideas?
I would check his temp and if normal just keep an eye on him at this point. If it goes on for any length of time a phone call to the vet would be in order. You could also give 30CC of Pepto or Kaolin Pectin.
Our older mare had a bout of this about a month ago, vet said give her 30CC 3x's per day for 3 or 4 days, if there was no improvement blood work would of been next, but she improved!
Whenever the horses I work with get diarrhea it's usually because they are excited. What kind of feed does he get? As long as it doesn't continue then I don't think you have anything major to worry about. Just keep an eye on him.
My weanling has had a few boughts, just noticed it again last night. Beet pulp usually helps his tummy/ stool get better. I've never tried human products. My vet always suggest getting a fecal count before doing anything else. If it persists for more then a day something might be up.
