Every summer a horse at my barn starts to colic due to dehydration. I don't know all the details except that she obviously does not drink enough water. The vet comes out and decides she needs to go to the emergency hospital for IV fluids. To walk in the charge starts at $1500. They give her fluids and she is fine. Just wondering if it is asking to much for the vet to give her fluids at the barn. Seems like the stress would be much less as well as the vet bill. This has happened every year for 4 years. To add to the stress it seems to always be when the owner has just left for vacation, seriously...every time. Should she look for a vet that will do the fluids at our barn.
