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.
This is a huge quantity even for Dandy who is a very large horse. I would worry very much that he may founder and to help prevent this, the treatment is to tube Dandy with 1 gallon of Mineral Oil and give twice daily doses of Banamine to decrease inflammation. Doing this could prevent founder, colic or diarrhea.
