Pelvic injury from foaling mistaken for EPM
Well had some big ups and downs today. I get to the barn this AM and Cider is down. She had tried to get back up but was too weak to get up. The vet came down and gave her a few shots to get her up. As she was laying on the ground he poked her with the needle and she had no feeling in both legs. I was scared to death we where looking at putting her down. After all the shots she was given she did get back on her feet but she was very wobbly. I got my meds from the dr and watched her. My barn owner came and talked to me and we agreed time to talk to a new vet. We called a big time older vet to come out and look at her. In 5 min he told me her pelvic is twisted from having a huge baby and it is pinching her nerves and causing her to not feel her hind legs. I asked him about the EPM and he said she dosn't have EPM. He then gave her fluids demso and acupuntre with vit B-12. By the time her left she could feel the needle prick on her back legs. She is walk better tonight and I am going to video tape her tomarrow to show everyone what she looks like. Thank you everyone my wishes are answered.
