Good news- the vet doesn't think that its EPM. He also doesn't think she's been poisoned, either- thankfully.
He's fairly sure that she's tied up, as ClaPorte suggested. He took some blood and is going to run a few tests on it then get back to use, but in the meantime gave her an IV of water since she was dehydrated, then injected some relaxants directly into her muscles. He wants us walking her for ten minutes every hour until she improves and and gave us a new dietary plan for her, including a suppliment rich in Selenium, magnesium, vitamin E and a few other things that I can't remember off the top of my head. He also wants us to take her off of her grain and put her on just forage and rice bran. Hopefully it all makes a difference.
He did mention it being possibly linked to EPSM, so Cat- you may be right. He siad there are other steps that can be taken if she doesnt get better, including long term medications, but we didnt really discuss them much yet. Thanks everyone for the thoughts and prayers!
