You'd have to talk to your vet. There are a couple different pastes (like GastroGard), which are pretty efficient. I noticed a difference with just two tubes of GastroGard over two days, except those two tubes cost me $75. The two bottles of Draw my vet gave me were $80 because I'm college and obviously broke. Abby also hates getting things put in her mouth.
You could call your vet and ask about giving her Pepto Bismol until she can come get checked out. It works the same in horses as it does in people and makes them feel better. My BO told me he has done that with his horses.
Yikes...he loves her but I'm not sure he's ready to pay that much...he might end up selling her back to the BO and either getting out of the horse business or get another... he's VERY green with horses. He got one by influence of his gf and then they split so he's left with a horse and has no idea what to do.
I advised him to call the vet and have her checked..
