Well. Considering we havent had to have a vet for emergency purposes in abou 4 years.. This is okay I guess.. ANYWAYS.. Last night I went out and fed.. everybody was fine and dandy.. Went back inside for a maximum of about 15 minutes.. Went back out to ride.. and found Poncho's head gashed open:(.. I didnt think it was that bad at first.) Put a rope around his neck ( that's all I had ATM) and walked him to the horse trailer. Told my mom to bring me a towel to wash it. And found.. that I could see what we thought might have been his skull0_0. We called my dad.. who called our normal vet... and he didnt do emergencies.. SOOO we found our old old vet from when we used to have many horses. And he told us to give him some antiboitics and bring him in first thing in the morning. (because At that time we didnt think it was that bad from what we could see- poncho wouldnt let us move his forlock) So we load up Poncho and get to the vet, and he sedates him... shave it.. and the vet goes
" If I new it was THIS bad I would have told you to bring him in last night"- It was sorta late as well..
We had to sedate him twice because it is a head injury and he was jerking his head alot. And the adreniline of first being there made the first one ware off faster.. anyways.. I have a before on my other computer but can't get it. I will post the before later.. But!! Here is the after....
Bute 2 times a day until tomorrow night
And 8 tablets of TMZ(idk what that is) for 2 weeks.
And the stitches stay in for 14-21 days
Total cost for everything including emergency call( even though we went to his house) $450..
