    I live in a valley of 1200 people and this valley has FOUR vets....... Amazing that your town only have one vet.
    O_o I have no clue who PetsForLife is haha uhm sorry? And I wish we had more but hey, I have a great vet and I think that was his first vacation in 3 years (and it wasn't a vacation, his grandmother died) so it's just bad luck on my part. He has ALWAYS been on call and here within 30mins, and always has treated our horses no matter the problem. Everyone has preferences, it doesn't matter how many vets we have access to. It works for me/us, so what else is there to say lol.

    Antibiotics are a pretty standard thing with choke. We are not talking about choke here though, we are talking about a standard impaction colic. I can see it with a sand colic I guess.

    Antibiotics mess with the digestive system. I would think they would be counter productive on a horse trying to recover from an impaction colic.
