Still though Gus, you need to CALL a vet. Get off the internet call and take care of your horse

Gus,
I understand you are stressed right now. I'm glad your horse is eating, that's a good sign. Keep an eye on him and check his vitals. If you don't know how, people here will be able to explain for you.

In the future, to avoid responses like this it's a good idea to explain everything that is going on and give all the information you have. Please realize that people over the internet are not veterinary professionals so although we all care about what happens to your horse sometimes there is no solution or advice we can give but to call the vet.

Sometimes vets can give you advice over the phone without coming out. If they know your area, they will be sympathetic to your problem.

I hope he continues to start looking better for you. Good luck!

Think about it Gus, if you Don't call a vet and something happens to hot dog, you WILL Regret it. A vet will come down to help Hot dog.

Really? What DOES it take for you to call a vet? You have a horse with sand colic and that doesn't warrant a vet call now you have another horse who is down with potential colic and THAT doesn't warrant a vet call.

I think you are like the little kid who cries wolf. This is your second thread in a week about a dying horse that is URGENT yet you REFUSE to call a vet?!?! That's negligent and, in some states, is a fine-able offense as it's considered abuse. If you can't afford to call a vet, you can't afford to own a horse much less MULTIPLE ones!

amarea just badly wants you to call a vet if your horse is sick. You can't deny that the refusing to call a vet thing IS cruel. And I remember that other post, too where you wouldn't call a vet. Doing that is a bad habit, put yourself in the horse's shoes. Would you want a vet called for you? I think you would.

Just remember. JUST because a horse isn't laying down and rolling, his guts can still be twisting. I suggest you do some research and find a vet that does night calls.
Trust me iv been there.

Sorry that you don't like someone questioning the fact that twice alone this week horses are "dying" and yet you downright REFUSE to call a vet. Calling a vet is part of horse ownership. We've all done it. Yet, according to you, for as long as you can remember, you've never had a vet to your property. Do you not find that even slightly negligent?

I'm sorry that you have issues in your life, but why should your horses have to suffer for your issues?

And sorry, I'm not going anywhere

first of all, keep your horse moving now! with my colicing horse, that was the best thing i could do for her. the vet told me to keep her moving. then we trailered her to the clinic to get checked out and get some drugs and such. it was probably the scarist hour of my life. it was a 1/4 hour drive to the vet, but since the roads were really bad because of ice, it took 1/2 hour. my dad drove and i stayed in the trailer with my horse. KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR HORSE! dont let her out of your eyes! please, because if she gets worse, you need to be there right aways to help. walking her will do her good!
