Horse Veterinary Questions? Ask an Equine Vet.
Would weaning her cause her to act like shes not feeling good? I am concern on her eating, and her eyes, they seem like she has a small cold, like a child.
This is the first filly for me to have. She was born here at our home.
I may be an over reacting mom, but concerned.
Thank you for your time
First Thank You for your time
She is passing stool so far normally, and drinking water ok. I use a 20lb empty plastic tub for her watering, I use that cleaned out very good and fill it to the top with water morning and night to keep track on the amount of water she is consuming. She is drinking about 2-3 inches durning the day and about the same at night when I check in the morning at feeding. I did the skin pinch test for any signs of dehydation, and so far looking good.
Iv call the vet, this morning and her phone person wants me to bring her in saying a temp of 100* is a sign she is running a low temp. My husband aggrees with you, he has been around horses all his life, his dad never took them to a vet, he treated them at home.
Im not the knowlage on horses to take that risk.
Thank You Again
