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 temperature is normal for Baily...anything over 104 would be significant. You can give Pencillin G every 12 hrs as a preventative at a dose of 1 ml per every 100 pounds every 12 hrs. I worry that Baily may be suffering from something else such as a mild colic so it is also good to give her Butazolidin 2 gms every 12 hrs as an anti inflammatory agent. Feed her a bran mash with a small amount of grain for a few days to help her past this.
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, ***** *****
You are very welcome!! I know Baily is in good hands....I hope she feels better soon!
