Good Morning.
So sorry to hear about your horse's sudden condition. I need to ask you a few questions so that I might answer your question more completely.
1): How old, and what breed is your horse? (and what's his name?)
2): Is he favoring his front or back left leg?
3): Is he able to eat and drink?
4): What type of environment does he live in (stall, pasture, etc.)?
5): Why do you think he may have been drugged?
6): Is he overweight?
7): Can he walk at all without stumbling, and is he just stumbling on his left leg, or all four?
8): What is his current diet?
Thanks, ***** ***** looking forward to hearing from you. I'll be away from my computer for awhile, as I have to feed my own critters!
