Hmm the link looks ok but yea it didn't work :( I am not sure why.

But Vet just called and Lizzy is all in the clear!!!! She is no longer anemic but would like it a little higher and her white cell count is back to normal. Liver enzymes are back to normal along with one other thing (phone cut out but I don't care because it's good now). He was very impressed how high her blood count went so we are all in the clear.

***Happy dance***

that's wonderful news for you
Does that mean she can come off the daily wormer programme as that must be costing you a lot of money and she is kept in such a way that reinfecting should not be an issue

Nope, her worming program must be kept up. Right now reinfecting is not an issue but she may be moved around. She doesn't get claim to a certain paddock unfortunately. And it costs me $24 for 120 day supply.

She needs to stay on Red Cell for now as he would like the numbers about 6 points higher. I might retest her in spring when the vet is out for shots/coggins.

feeding

Just a random thought but is it cheaper to buy soya oil from a supermarket than to buy something like flax oil - its good for weight gain & a good food source
Also seaweed is a good source of iron and may be cheaper than the red cell

I will have to check on the oil, I am not sure. But I'm pretty sure she would not eat seaweed lol.
