    I second the worming issue. Even though all are wormed on the same routine some horses have bigger issues with worms than others. Keep in mind fecals won't catch a tape worm or encysted strongyle...

  3. Questions about feeding hay again after right dorsal colitis

    After five months and one week, my mare has come out the other side of RDC. Whew - what a nightmare! She's stopped pinning her ears and kicking out when I touch her abdomen in front of her hips. ...

    Our grass in Florida is super sugary most of the year, unless we have a freeze, so my other horses wear grazing muzzles all year round when they're out (they each get out either all day or all...

    Glad you checked for ulcers, but hindgut ulcers don't show up on the scope, and it sounds like ulcers to me (from experience). Try Succeed or Arenus or RiteTrac or Starting Gate or Kombat Boots for...

    I have a very similar situation with my mare, put her on omeprazole three weeks ago and she's been gas colicky and bloated since putting her on it. She had symptoms of both gastric and hindgut...
