He's sick and off feed fever of 103. Have vet coming this evening. I'm really worried about him.

Thought the heat was getting to him. He's been off last few days.

Much needed jingles and prayers please. I'll update later on after vets been.

Poor guy! My gelding got overheated at a ride this weekend. We hosed him with cold water for 40 minutes until his temp came back down and fed him as much soaked beet pulp as we could stuff him with and he seems back to himself now. Hope it's just overheating for you too!

I'm currently trying to find a vet who will come out. One I thought was going to now can't. I can't haul trailer is being repaired.

Waiting for a call back from a different vet. Oh I'm so stressed and worried.

Thanks everyone really really appreciate the jingles and good thoughts.😊

Vet was here ice has anaplasmosis 103.5 fever and off all feed. Little edema in legs. IV catheter is in his neck had first treatment.

Vet showed me how to do the meds and flush the catheter, before antibiotics and banamine and after. Poor boy still not feeling to good but showed a little interest in hay.

There were 3 other charges that don't show tranq 55$ farm call 95$ examination 55

He is at least now being treated for what ails him...cost seems about right for emergency call and urgent care appointments...
Did you find any ticks on him recently?



Guess you will be doctoring Ice for a few days yet...


Did you ask if this could also present as Ice having anhidrosis...the non-sweating thing he suddenly developed.
Makes me wonder if this is connected to that..:think:

It's great that you got a diagnosis. I looked it up on line and it seems like with treatment he should be fine! A hefty vet bill, yes, but worth it!
