yearling with diarrhea
Cody, our yearling Morgan colt has had diarrhea for the last 3-4 days. It started out as just loose stools, but progressed to the point where yesterday he was squirting out pure liquid. He didn't seem sickly or lethargic at all, until this morning. I have been giving him electrolytes for the last 3 days to replace what he has lost, took a stool sample to the vet this morning and he has put him on antibiotics, which I gave him at 11 am and by 3 pm he was looking much better, and pooping (almost) normal poop The vet said he gets lots of cases like this at this time of year, and suspects it might be from eating frozen grass. So we have closed off the pasture while we wait for the results from the fecal exam, and we have enough antibiotics for 5 days. Has anyone had any experience with this? I was getting very worried for a while there.
