    No real news to report, besides that I am just done-zo. No change, still off balance. Gave him some different hay and he seemed interested, but no change in his water intake/output. Vet is hoping the different hay might show a change, but if not we're going to look more closely at his neck. He mentioned EPM but did not think that it was very likely at all.

    Too many things going on in my life right now, I'm just spent.

    Jingles!

    An off chance, but could he have tied-up?

    A tick borne disease a possibility? Also, even if your area doesn't have EPM, it could be a relapse from years prior. So, if he hasn't been out in your area since birth, I would not rule it out.

    I hope it's something with a good prognosis

    If he is not urinating, I would think the vet should pass a urinary catheter to make sure he is not retaining urine. If he is neurologic, the inability to void could result in permanent damage to his bladder and permanent inability to urinate on his own.

    Aw Heinz! So sorry. This is just beyond frustrating -- your having to sit on the sidelines w/o solid info -- and watching your lovely paint struggle. Sending lots of wishes that today brings good news and relief from worry. Jingles jingles jingles.

    Heinz 57,

    I am so sorry to hear about your horse, and even more sorry that you don't have any answers yet. Wilted is the word that comes to mind in such answerless circumstances.

    Jingling for you and your paint from my corner of OR.

    He mentioned EPM but did not think that it was very likely at all.
    Why would a staggering horse lead to the conclusion that EPM is not very likely?

    Still jingling--hang in there!

    I am so sorry to hear this. Last year, my 4 year old Arabian/Connemara cross suffered trauma to his neck in a pasture accident on 5-11-11. The accident resulted in a transverse process broken off of a mid-cervical vertebra and swelling which caused spinal compression. He suffered severe neurologic complications (ataxia, eye darting, neck weaving, head held crookedly) and could barely walk or stand with stability. My veterinarian gave him a 1% chance of survival, as she originally diagnosed him with some type of disease or pathogen induced encephalitis. She wanted to euthanize on the spot, and I refused. She treated with DMSO IV and then prednisone for inflammation, as well as some oral pain medication and antibiotics. On day 6 I loaded him on a trailer. He was able to get on the trailer by himself, which amazed me as he could barely walk. He leaned back on his haunches and lept into the trailer. It brings tears to my eyes to remember it. I trailered him to the vet, and she x-rayed his neck. That is when we found the cause. It took 9 weeks before I knew he was going to make it and have some type of life. Next week will be one year, and he is almost 100% recovered. It was a very long, hard road, but he recovered!

    I am very concerned to hear about the lack of urine output. That needs to be addressed ASAP. My horse never stopped eating or peeing/pooping. I would also get him on steroids ASAP, as inflammation of the spinal cord is causing his symptoms, no matter what is causing the inflammation.

    I found this article very informative: http://www.equinewobblers.com/Wobble.../Fractures.htm While it is on a site discussing wobblers, it also addresses neurological symptoms from fractures.

    Steroids are great, but need to be used with UTMOST respect, and always with a working diagnosis in hand.
