Thank you everyone for your rude comments about my vet. He has been in Southern TX (we are in Norther CO) for a week and just got back this morning (he came home 2 days early for my mare). There are NO OTHER VETERINARIANS out here. We took her in this morning as soon as he returned and had him do a rectal exam. Turns out yes, she did have Impaction Colic and everything is taken care of now. We got mineral oil as well as a special laxative in her stomach, should start taking effect by this afternoon. Have some Penicillin to give her tomorrow, and plenty of electrolytes to tie in if she starts with diarrhea tonight. She has full access to water 24/7 and is allowed to start nibbling on clean grass hay, stalk free. I appreciate the comments and invoice, but was just curious as to whether or not these strange symptoms have been seen by others and in what cases.
To everyone else, thank you so much for the tips and info. We reacted right away, as soon as I realized something wasn't right. I think that helped tremendously. I've dealt with colic before, just like I said not with those strange symptoms on top of it all. Anyways, things are taken care of and she has a little kick in her step again :) Going to be watching her for a day or two very closely, and will provide another update or two here soon. Thanks again and I appreciate everything!
