Ok, I feel like I am really losing my mind here and probably nothing is wrong but yet here I am.
My mare (just turned 28) over the last few weeks has been having small(er) poo piles. I have owned her for 14+ years and her poop has always been exactly the same. Day in and day out. Now all of a sudden she is having piles that are 1/4-1/3 the size of her normal piles. The fecal balls themselves are the same size, just less of them. They also seem to be normal as far as not too wet or not too dry. I mentioned this to the vet at her spring vaccine appointment last week, and she didn’t seem concerned. However, since that appointment it seems to have gone from just 1-2 poops a day being small to almost all of them being smaller. Am I being overly paranoid? Has anyone experienced something similar? I plan to phone the vet in the morning again but I feel like she’s going to think I’m crazy!
I should mentioned all of her behavior is status quo (eating, drinking, alert, good gut sounds, pink gums, etc).
