Hey we took Cody up to Madison, WI to a specialized/emergency clinic today. They found some things wrong but didn’t find him lame which was really odd because he is really lame at home but he walked and trotted wonderfully when we were there! Anyway, we had had Cody on 4-6g of butte a day on our vets orders to get Cody comfortable and at the clinic they said that he had butte poisoning!! It turns out that our vet had us giving him over double the maximum amount of butte that his body can handle! So ya we r really mad at our vet right now but they also said that Cody can never have grain again ever which is fine we can work around that but…they also said that they are not convinced that he foundered but they will look into that a little more throughout the next couple of days since he has to stay there until at least Friday. It was hard to leave him but I know it was for the best & I’m hoping to go visit him on Thurs cuz I cant make it out there tom. Anyways, they also did an ultrasound on his whole body trying to find the cause of everything that was going on with Cody. & they found that his colon wall was 3x thicker than it should be! & in the blood work that they took they found that his protein levels were really low! So right now they are trying to piece it all together & I will try to keep everyone posted as we know more. Thanx for your concern and support. Leaving a vote! =] P.S. sry that I dont have time to visit all of your horses pgs but i will try to get to it as soon as i can but im pretty busy with everything so i dont know how soon it will b sry! but yes that is me standing on the horses its called Roman Riding and it is really fun!! (but extrememly hard on ur legs! =])
