Yeah, lesson learned. Maybe the pictures didnt look as horrific as they did in person? I was just trying to be helpful so that they'd know what to be prepared for! We sent pictures of our colt when he detatched his eye, and they were able to tell us what to do with it to try to preserve it (it didnt work sadly) and staunch the bleeding, but I guess in this case it was counterproductive.
Weirdly enough, she refuses to take treats from me. I've tried apples, carrots, grain, peppermints, alfalfa/peppermint rolled treats, mollasses cakes, and pieces of sandwich- and she won't eat them. She's taken the rolled treats from me once or twice and gummed at them for a minute before spitting them out, but she just seems to have something against hands and food. She LOVES to eat and will eat tasty bits in her bucket, but as soon as a hand is there she won't even sniff at it usually. Up until now I didn't mind, I don't often feed treats anyways- but I do wish I could give her something to make things better now.
I was just thinking, should I be giving her anything at all for pain? I don't think bute would be correct in this instance, but I really don't know. Poor thing practically groans and grimaces every time she swings her head too fast or touches her lop ear to something.
