Fast/extreme Muscle loss in my mare! Opinions??
My 7 year old QH mare has lost a significant amount of muscle mass in the past 72 hours my vet estimates 150-200lbs. Her top line and hip just wasted away. She was extremely in shape worked 5 days a week. She is halter/cow bred so she was a wide musclular girl. She unexplainably tied up (or what mimicked it) a week ago, she has never tied up before. She is HYPP neg. The problem is she got kicked bad yesterday and the vet doesn't want to do any testing about the muscle deterioration until we get her leg in the clear, but I can't help worrying about it. Has anyone else had a similar thing happen?
