pale He has been sick for 2 weeks, Spurts and Ulcers. Did not take to being hauled to another farm. There was a sick filly in the stall next to him, they thought it was just because Mom had alot of milk. Well guess not. His mom gets Ultrasounded today and if shes not in foal, were not breeding her back. Hes just not doing well enough to take the chance to leave the farm, and worry about them giving his meds. Bless his heart, about the time he starts to fill out a bit, it hits him again, and you just see him start to go backwards. Tummy tucks up and ribs start showing, Hes a fighter. Hes a doll, he takes all his meds and yogert like a champ. Just as soon as he gets back on his game, I'll post a updated photo of him. Hes growing, just not blooming. No

Geeze - sorry to hear that - I take it no shipped semen?

We treated ulcers in my filly and she was 100% within 2 days...

We gave her 1/4 tube of ulcerguard a day for 16 days and also gave her 150mg of Zantac dissolved in water 1x per day...
She also got biosponge the first 2 days...but she is doing great!!!!

finished treating her over a week ago and she is one happy camper...

I got my treatment from Kesmarc

I read about the ulcers a lot on this forum. I have never had this trouble... Nor do I know anyone who has...scratch I have delt with the poos though and just kept them clean and dry.. Pepto and it passes after a few days. I find this happens when they start eating with mama. I have also delt with phenomia in weanlings after a horse show.. No

I hope he gets healthy soon. I will be praying for him pray
