No, I don't call the vet out hardly at all for choke. I have spoken to him via phone several times about choke, and have had him out a few times, but I rarely get him out when Dakota chokes.
Last time the vet was out and heckd my boy over, he examined his throat and said that there was a bit of scar tissue from choke episodes, but that he wouldn't reccomend a sugical fix, because that could cause even more scar tissue, and as long as it is manageable by soaking feed or softer feeds, then he wouldn't bother with a surgical fix.
I, and the rest of the forum family, don't blame you for freaking out. We prolly all know exactly how scary choke can be!
I think I am just worried as she is still a baby and I am wanting to give her the best start in life and now I feel like I've messed it up for her. I just pray she doesn't end up with any scarring and it will heal well.
I am happy to hear that your horse does well even with the scarring in his throat. That gives me a lot of hope for the future for this little lady.
Thank you for your support, it's very much appreciated. It's good to know that you have been/going through the same thing and gotten through it so well.
I am concerned I guess that the vet didn't give her any antibiotics or do the tubing as that seems to be the norm on most of the articles I read on choke.
He did listen to her chest, so maybe he thought she was fine.
So I will play the waiting game and if anything seems off at all with her, the vet will be making a swift return before he's due out in a fortnight.
Many many thanks to all who responded.
