Yup, DEFINITELY think less food = smaller piles! Definitely don't feel the feces would remain inside until the usual size pile was "ready"...& I think the smaller piles are a good sign since she's taking in less because it means things are moving through her in the normal/usual amount of time for her!

Good luck with the tests! I agree, they should be willing to simply do that which you as her mom feel is required, nothing more, nothing less...they may still "recommend" other diagnostics, but you do what you are comfortable with to ease YOUR MIND! Usually, extras are recommended to prevent "litigation", as in, so they can show they were thorough beyond compare. But always necessary, and as a horsewoman, thou know what you feel she NEEDS, given her age as well!

Keeping up the positive! Looking REALLY GOOD FOR HER I BELIEVE!! :0)

My vet is positive that it isn't a twisted gut. She would be looong since having troubles, not doing better eight days after the fact. And as I've said, I have called many vets (one two hours north, one two hours south, one 45 minutes south, one an hour east...) that I've used and have been OK with (our local vets aren't great) but they've all said they do not have ANY means to see what is going on inside of her and she'll have to be taken to state.

Thank-you Back. Thanks Ripper, I'll look.
