Also, those symptoms remind me a bit of tying up sickness I think it's called. Working horses (thinks drafts) get it after being worked hard for 5 or 6 days then put up for 2 and fed the same. But then again I'm not a vet and simply read a lot.
To be fair, I've posted here about an emergency while I was waiting for the vet to arrive. It was when my little mule died, and his symptoms seemed very unusual for colic to me so I was wondering if it was something else. There was nothing else for me to do (didn't think walking him was appropriate, he seemed to want to be left alone) so I just moved him to a quiet stall and sat outside where I could see him but used my laptop to ask COTH about possibilities to discuss with my vet.
Maybe this lady is like me and just has a limited number of vets/one that takes awhile to get there, so is using facebook to help her think things through and not feel useless. I can hope, right?
ETA hopefully that made sense...I just got stung by 3 bees and got a super dose of Benadryl to hopefully stave off the kind of nasty reaction I usually get (especially since the stings were all on my head and face ) and am thinking maybe I shouldn't have posted because words aren't making too much sense to me right now.
