Exactly, jess.

If you take out the divider, she can lay down all she wants. Or, leave it up and she can lean on it.

I've been on the phone with him on and off since 5 yesterday evening. He's been here twice. He says its only a mild case of colic, but it seems to be more then just mild to me... The banamine seems to be kicking in and helping now. I'm sitting outside watching her. She's roaming around sniffing, not laying down nearly as often. Last time she was down she farted quite a bit when trying to get up- so gas is passing. Vet says to wait it out for a while longer. It seems to be looking up a bit now... Hopefully we're not at square one when the banamine wears off though.

Is your vet certain it's gas and not impaction colic? If she hasn't passed any manure for 12 hours or more, that's very worrisome.

I agree.

She is laying down to try and shift something that is painful to her.

What type of banamine (paste or IV) and how often is she getting it?

He put his hand inside of her rectum ands pulled out poop. He also tubed her with hot water, mineral oil, and gas ex. She pooped a little at about 8 last night, and he pulled more out at about 9 this morning. She we're hoping for poop by 9 tonight. If her behavior gets erratic again we're taking her in. She seems only slightly uncomfortable right now but meds are also just kicking in. She has TONS of gut sounds

Too many gut sounds are just as bad as not enough.

The guy just keeps downplaying everything I say when I call... He doesn't think its as serious as I do. What am I supposed to do here? I have called all the area vets and he is the only one that bothered to call me back. He is the ER vet, and he makes house calls, but for some reason doesn't want to come back again.
