Hoping someone can provide some quick input about my old man.
I just when down to tuck them all into their stalls for the night and noticed the old man (really old, 34) was acting funny. Listless, lethargic and occasionally flipping his lip up. Looks a little like he’s been heavily drugged or something.
Already called the vet, but he was in emergency surgery and said to call back in 30min.
In the meantime, wondering if anyone has seen these signs before in their old horses. Could it be time? He’s been putting on weight this past month, and looks way better than he did a month ago when he started dropping weight pretty quickly, but the vet said that he thought it would be at least 2-3 months before we’d really have to start thinking about putting him down.
Any thoughts? Does this need immediate action?
