Zip was vaccinated (everything and teeth floated) end of Dec. We bought him in Nov and seller said he was due in Feb but Vet said okay to get him on our schedule. I only noticed the symptoms a couple of weeks ago but not sure how long its been going on. Since he is the low man he does not get "relaxed" much until He is stalled to eat. I feed am when its still dark,let them out on my way to work, & they come up from pasture at 5pm for feed then again at 8:30pm dark again.
No changes in him or his gait. His tail is also working.
When the Vet came out Wed the first thing she did was clean his sheath but said no problems there. She was happy cath went in easy. 2nd sample of urine had mucus but she said not unusual. She did rectal and felt bladder( I guess the outside) nothing unusual. She has not recommended any add testing and suggested that I try to video the dripping and try to get sample of the fluid, she says it could possibly be pre-ejac fluid vs urine. Okay but my friend did see him pee 2 different times on trail ride and at the end very dark brown. I asked if maybe he passed a stone. Vet said not likely as he was to young and no indication of stones in the urine sample testing.
I know I should be relieved but it just does not seem right to me. Plus he was quite thin when he came and I don't see where he has gained much, if any weight. Seller says he was thin for the whole time ( 1.5 yrs) he had him.
*G & K"s Mom - how is your fellow doing? I am so sorry he has a problem. Does he have a dripping or urinating problem?
