Please send your positive thoughts to my beautiful pony

So my poor little pony Nippa cut open the underside of his dock last week. He had the vet out and was put on a course of antibiotics. I went out to check on everyone today, only to discover he has somehow pulled his tail off. Literally, snapped the bone about 2 - 3 inches from the base and ripped it off. I called the vet and he won't come out until tomorrow morning. Angry, but thats not relevant. Anyway, please send all your positive thoughts to my boy...I'm so scared for him.

HowClever, I am so sorry for your pony. How horrible! Is there any other vet you can call? I would classify this as an emergency, but maybe the vet thinks differently?

Anyway, of course my positive thoughts will go to your little guy, and to you too! Keep us posted on how this will play out.

Take care,

He said he's not in any immediate danger because he's not bleeding (how he's not bleeding I have no idea) and he wouldn't be able to do anything in the dark. What kind of a vet doesn't have a portable light source???? Sorry, I'm trying to keep my emotions in check.

Thanks for your thoughts

I agree, try a different vet!
Do you know what he pulled it off on?

I'll be thinking of you & him today!

Oh no, poor Nippa! I hope your vet makes it out first thing this morning and gets him sorted out - please keep us posted. Poor lil guy.

The other vets in the area are much further away and honestly I have been less than impressed with their care in the past. Am I wrong in sticking with the vet I trust when he says he's in no immediate danger?

I don't think you are wrong in wanting the vet you know and trust....however in an emergency situation, I think I'd try to find someone that can get there NOW, no matter who it is. If he has exposed bone and muscle, it seems like the waiting could be very detrimental.

I might have to try and at least call the other vets, to see what they think

I would be very nervous that a vet that hasn't seen the horse would be so quick to say "he's fine", there is NO way the vet can know for sure so to assume that is ridiculous IMO.

If it were me, I'd go with another vet.

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia
