    Default Loose Stool/Diarrhea

    Hey there,

    So my horse has had very loose stools for the past two weeks. He has had no change in feed recently, and he was recently dewormed. He is on ulcer medication. Usually I wouldn't be so concerned, but it has lasted for a while and has started to bother him under saddle. He will have very "wet farts" and it really bothers him, he swishes his tail and kind of bounces from hind to hind.

    He hasn't been looked at by the vet yet, I wanted to ask for advice here before calling the vet out.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for what the problem might be, or for any treatment ideas?

    Default Quest Plus by aany chance?

    My horse also had this problem and it started right after she was wormed with Quest.
    Anyways I tried Pur-a-yeast which has a live yeast culture. It helped a bit.
    Then I tried bio sponge and that - so far - has fixed her right up.

    Good luck.
