Hi Roger, welcome to the forum. I saw this was your first post. I think maybe you need to read a little bit more of this thread. Mooney's problems have gone beyond something as simple as teeth. Although I'm sure we all wish it was something of that sort...

Another call from the vet said they pretty sure it is salmonella poisoning, but because it was diagnosed so late (almost 30 days) there is more than likely damage to the membrane of her colon. And they think it is causing her kidneys to fail causing the stretching and pain every time she urinates. Again nothing they can do, because it is damage and we can't afford to send her to clinic where she will probably die, if she makes to Monday the vet will be coming out then, if needed earlier.

I'm so sorry for you and Mooney, I've been following this post since the beginning and hoping so badly for a positive outcome

Truthfully we don't think it is salmonella at all, there has never been a case here that anyone knows of and all the horses around her are exposed to the same wildlife on a regular bases. But we're not waiting for the tests to come back, it is has gone to far already and Mooney is completely wasted away.

No one could have guessed a simple case of gas colic could turn into this. and I do appreciate everyone that has been rooting for Mooney to get better in the past month.
