When I had a vet out early in my horse ownership, I asked as many questions as I could so that I would be more prepared the next time - that wa sway before the internet!
Thankyou for your advice I have noticed this with colic (he use to colic alot, even on non-colic stuff.) I noticed that every time he had signs of colic I could judge if he was just laying down or if he was actually sick. Of course the vet was still contaced and if I had any doughts the vet was oout. Can anyone give me an idea on how long he will be out of work with a sprain (not that that is the most important part too me) Posted via Mobile Device
