Before anyone jumps down my throat this is on vets orders.
Dinky my Miniature Shetland colic this morning quite badly so of course we had the vet out. The vet gave her three different injection as she was really quite ill then said she can't have anything to eat for 12-24 hours. My question is, is this safe, I am doing a nutrition course that said that if they don't eat almost constantly their small intestine call get knotted.
I know I shouldn't be questioning the vet but the vet practice we use has just gotten a new vet that I have never used before so don't know what he is like as I have done 2 weeks work experience as the vets so know them all really well but this new one.
