Exclamation Omg what is wrong with my horse

O GOSH O GOSH my horse Hot Dog, he is laying down!!!!!

Kk so let me start from beginning, hot dog was layin down for aobut 2 min then he got up, I'm thinkin, "ok he's just enjoyin weather...." (it only 70) but he layed down again, now I'm getting worried so I feed him and hot dog loves food and he still won't get up so now I'm extremely concerned! He has gut sounds so I pretty sure it isn't colic but every now and then he's rollin. I got some electrolites in him, now we going to give him banemine (spelling) There is no time to call a vet this is now or never! We fairly far away from vets as well. I forgot, a slightest movement has been spooking him, and for the most part he is bomb proof. The only change we have made that would effect him would be we have been giving him a half a flake of grass hay, but that shouldn't harm anything.....right?

Please help, Hot dog needs it now!!!!

Still sounds like colic to me. Can you get him up with a halter and lead?

Call your vet anyway. It is either now or never for that phone call, too. I'd try and keep him up and moving for now.

The best I can do is ask for advice

If you have time to post on here, you have time to call the vet if it's as dire as you worded it.

Get him up and walking. How is his capillary refil and pinch test? Has he pooped? If so what did it look like? How does he look overall? Is he bright and alert or looking dull?

How are his vitals?

Yeah, I would definitely get him up and walking, and if he is uncomfortable, and acting strange, call a vet!!! Its in your horse's best interest

Not to be mean, I know I'm new on here. But WHY are you inside on the computer asking about this? And not calling a vet?
