Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am an equine vet. I apologize for the delay in answering your questions. Is Kandee continuing to struggle or has she improved at all the last couple days?

A little improvement. Diarrhea. Treating with kaopectate. Also panacur x 5 days on 4th day today. Still prefers hay over grain
Horse Veterinarian: Jill DVM, Horse Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

OK. Did her diarrhea start following her antibiotic shots or did Dr. M administer them after she developed diarrhea?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Started after antibiotic
Horse Veterinarian: Jill DVM, Horse Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Has Dr. M been following up with you on how Kandee is doing? I am concerned that Kandee may have developed antibiotic associated colitis, which is an unpredictable side effect of antibiotic use in horses. It unfortunately can be fatal. Without examining her myself and not being able to see any lab results I cannot say for sure though. Is there a local equine hospital near you that can ultrasound Kandee's chest and abdomen? Some horses with pneumonia can also have the symptoms you described.

Yes to Dr. M . I have lab work. I will discuss the colitis with her There is a clinic 45 miles away

Horse Veterinarian: Jill DVM, Horse Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

OK, that's great! I'm sure Dr. M has a good treatment plan set up and is keeping a close eye on her. Don't be afraid to take Kandee to the equine hospital if you feel she isn't improving. If you have any other questions please let me know!
