Colt Constipation

We made it down to Ben and Taunya's in 13 hours arriving around 5:30 pm. We had a good trip stopping at a Mexican restaurant for a late lunch. We were too full to want dinner so just picked up ice cream and baked a batch of cookies for dessert. After that fine dessert mom, Karin and I joined Addyson, Jack and Jace in the hot tub which was so relaxing that we all headed up to bed early. At 4:30 am Jessica sent a text that the colt is not eating as much and is constipated. I couldn't go back to sleep so came down to do some research on how to help him from 13 hours away. In a few hours the vet clinic will be opened and hopefully they will have some suggestions. We sure don't want to lose Eli.

  1. You can always give a mild baby fleet enema. Just like you do when they are born to help them pass the meconium.

    Last chance corral has some helpful tips I have used to save some of my orphans. I try to get them on a free feeding cooler as fast as possible. Adding yogurt for probiotics for the gut is very helpful. Treating for ulcers as well because they tend to get nasty ulcers due to stress.
