Horse Veterinary Questions? Ask an Equine Vet.
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
My concern for Snoopy is that he may have had more than a mild colic and he is now feeling the effects of the stress caused by the sedation and teeth floating. The fact that he is laying down indicates that he is still in pain despite the Banamine that has been given. I would have your vet come and recheck Snoopy and run blood work since these symptoms are telling us that something more serious is going on. This could be related to the more serious colic , which is hard to know without xrays, or a case of founder secondary to the stress of his condition. I worry, due to his age, that there may be something much more serious going on with Snoopy and only further diagnostics will determine the cause and best treatment.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and precious Snoopy!!!
