Does anyone have any experience with Rheaform? I have a gelding who has chronic loose manure. We've tried Biosponge with no luck. The next step for us is metronidazole but I don't want to use it as it can have some nasty side effects.

Have you tried doing a Power Pack?

No, I haven't tried power pac. I've run 5 different fecals and all came back negative.

Small strongyles won't show up on a fecal......the five day Power Pac has a calming affect on the bowels due to the type of drug used......it might be worth a try.

Our 26 year old gelding had severe diarrhea. We tried the gel-no relief, then the 5 day double panacur wormer-no relief. After talking with the Vet we used the Rheaform. 40cc for 3 days then 20cc until the bottle was empty. After the 2nd day, the diarrhea stopped.

I just bought a powerpac to use on my new gelding who was very wormy. Vet advised I did the Equimax first then a month later the powerpac. It is a bit expensive but totally worth it. A friend of mine has an older gelding who had a loose stool and after the powerpac it completely went away. Definitely try that.
