Okay guys, I posted another thread about one of my ponies' drastic weight loss. She was wormed, seemed fine, slightly under weight but she's an oldie and turning into a bit of a hard keeper. And then she started going downhill FAST, lost a LOT of weight and even when we upped her feed significantly continued losing, and then lost all interest in food. Would nibble at her grain and then leave the rest, turn her nose up at hay, etc. we tried the tums trick to do a bit of 'self-diagnosing' as suggested by a member here and that night she ate everything plus left overs from that morning, so we suspected ulcers... but since then, without being given any more tums / medication she's continued to eat normally, finishing her grain, eating at her hay and grazing. Anyway, vet is coming tomorrow to do teeth / examination... the purpose of this post is to possibly get some suggestions as far as questions to ask, tests to ask about, etc. I know vet will know best
but I've never had to deal with sick horses, and am not sure what to bring up.
