As a greenie to this forum, I do not know if I am doing this correctly, but I searched through these threads as much as I could before deciding to make my own.
Monday I was riding my mare when suddenly she started showing symptoms of colic. She was sweating more than normal, labored breathing, and was bloated throughout her entire stomach and started doing the ‘colic walk’. With some banamine, a cold hose and lots of walking she seemed better. For the next 4 days she had a 101+ degree fever which is now back to normal. After the fever subsided she had large amounts of swelling in all four of her legs (extremely weird because she lives outside). Today, over a week after the initial incident, she the swelling was nearly gone, but she is still oddly lethargic. She seems uncomfortable and unbalanced, her anus also seems retracted or sunken and she has started licking/biting the wood fencing of her pasture.
Extremely weird I know. Yes my vet has been notified but she sees no extreme issue at hand. I would just really like to know what is going on, please comment if you have any ideas!
