Today the vet came out again to check on Slick.
Slick looks better. He has less of an infection odor from his sinuses – but he is still green snotty. Yuk. He has gained some weight. He isn’t right, that’s for sure.
He listened to Slick’s gut and still hears some sand so we will be back on the soaked beet pulp and psyllium routine. (While I was gone, Hubby did his best but just couldn’t get Slick to eat his antibiotics AND the psylliym…)
We also took some Xrays. Unfortunately, the Xray reader program on the vet’s computer wasn’t working. Bummer. He had to go back to his office to read them. So, I don’t know what is up yet.
We then opened his mouth and took a look inside. Slick has a little mouth, so that was fairly easy. The vet also felt around for any swollen gums, loose teeth or pus sacks.
Slick behaved horribly so at least he was feeling better – back to his old self…
For now, I will continue the antibiotics twice a day to help stop the infection – whatever it is – and I will continue with the gut cleansing.
I will also drum my fingers on my desk until we can read the Xrays and figure out if this is a very stubborn sinus infection or a bad tooth that isn’t visible to palpation and the human eye.
Patience is not one of my virtues.
OK FRESIAN FANS! HERE IS A VIDEO FOR YOU!
My cousin, who I rarely see and who I didn’t even think knew I had a blog, sent this video to me to share with you.
I’m not a fan of some of the headsets shown here, but one cannot deny the glory and magnificence of these horses.
