August 8 -15, 2011

This week has been scary. LBR was not feeling well - off his feed on Tuesday morning and laying down so he was given Banamine and put on stall rest.

He seemed to recover nicely so on Wednesday morning he was put back out in his paddock. On Wednesday afternoon, the stable owner found him rolling in his paddock and immediately rushed him to the Vet. He was put on IV fluids as he was mildly dehydrated and kept in ICU.

He was continuing to show signs of stress through the early evening, but improved overnight.

We brought him home Thursday evening and he remained stalled with limited feed through the weekend. As he improved, per the vet, we gradually increased his feed.

On Monday, he was allowed to go back to his paddock.

I've never worried more for an animal in my life.
