They said it's to help make a bowl movement.. and then a pain killer. He said choke is uncommon in young horses... He has gut sounds now. He may have the first time I checked but I was kind of panicked. He's standing without me out there now, I think he's just tired. No biting at his sides, no more rolling. No more gurgling when he breathes. I think it was minor choke, do they lay down when they have choke? Posted via Mobile Device
If it were me...and I am in no way telling you what to do....I would continue to monitor the horse for symptoms. If he acts ok and will eat and drink, I would hold off on the shots. Make sure he is in a place where you can see if he has a bowel movement or not.
Okay, that is pretty much what I'm doing now. He's in a small dry lot right behind my house, I can see him from my sliding glass door. I'm about to move his water, but should I let him lay down right now? He isn't rolling. Posted via Mobile Device
