Poor Bubba was trying to colic this morning. (He has a sensative tummy for a mule and this is not unusual) He didn't finish his breakfast although he wanted it badly. I called the vet who told me to go a head and give him Banamine. That worked and with in 1/2 hour he began to graze. I am concerned though that he hasn't pooped and his gut sounds are decreased. He is always mopey kinda like Eeorre (sp?) so it's hard to say if he is feeling depressed. I gave him the Banamine at 11 and it's almost 2pm and he hasn't gone down since the shot. He is back in his stall so I can see if he poops and he ate a small bucket of bran with oil. The vet says if he takes a turn for the worse it will be within 6 hours of the shot. I have to head to work but my husband will be coming home around 3pm and hopefully be able to stay with him until 5pm...then he has to go back to work. I guess my question is....how often should a healthy horse poo? I should know this but when under stress I always second guess myself.
