Today I got a call from my mom out at the barn to tell me she thought Nick was colicing (sp). So I went out there and we called the vet.
He came, did a rectal exam on him, checked his gums, sedated him, put mineral water into him via a tube up his nose, and now have been instructed to walk him for 10-15 minutes every hour. He's to be given a 1000 lb dose of Banamine around 2/2:30.
Just a small update.
The vet said it was probably due to him not liking to drink cold water. So now we're on a search for a way to warm up the water in his stall. He has an automatic watering system in his stall and in the run-in but neither is warm - just thaw.
Any ideas on how to heat a water tank?
