Common horse veterinary questions resolved on JustAnswer


The qualified Experts on JustAnswer regularly respond to horse veterinary questions like:


  • My horse has had diarrhea for about four days. Can I give him Imodium crushed up in applesauce?
  • My mini mule is a rescue and won’t allow anyone very close to him. Is there a sedative I can give him so the farrier can do his feet?
  • My horse got into milo today and has had an upset stomach. We gave him Banamine, but he continues to lay down on his side. Is this OK?
  • I have a very expensive show jumping horse with a small tear in the digital flexor tendon and my vet is suggesting blistering. I don’t like the sound of this; what is it?
  • My 12-year-old thoroughbred gelding came in the other night with ataxia. He never got colicky, and his appetite has not diminished. Could this be from a toxic plant?
