Tuesday the vet came back out to give Denali another shot of Reserpine. One of it's side effects is diarrhea and boy did she have diarrhea. This time it was 10X worse than last time. I got to the barn last night and checked on her. She looked pretty bad, and was all sunken in.
I let Ms. D relax and decided to go ride the Morgan. I had an AMAZING ride on the Morgan. It was awesome and I actually felt like I was doing everything right for once.
About 9:00 I went to check on Ms. Denali again, and she hadn't drank any water and then I noticed she hadn't gone to the bathroom at all in the 4 hours I had been at the barn. I went into crazy horse owner mode and went to find a stethoscope and couldn't hear any gut sounds. That's when I noticed that she was kicking at her gut. I grabbed her halter and checked gums, they were pale and there was minimal capillary response. I called the emergancy number and no one called back (turns out that the page didn't go through.) I decided that I'd try to text my vet's number JUST in case she'd answer it. Thank GOD she did! At this point it was 10:15 and she assured me that she should be okay and that she'd be out ASAP, but to try some Banamine first and see if it helps her calm down. She told me to give it to her and wait an hour to see if it helped her to relax. LUCKILY it did, and she drank a little water. I have to say that after 12 hours I have never been so freaking happy to hear that my horse pooped!!
Long, long night and long day. Just wanted to give everyone a Denali update. Surgery still on for the 1st.
