Say that three times fast!!
When I bought Peebs they told me his "thing" was getting loose manure whenever they switched hay. They had him on a probiotic that he got about a week before and a week after the switch and it worked pretty well. I talked with my vet and he told me just to keep Peebs on the probiotic all the time.
With the arrival of warm sunny days and lots of green grass I've been slowly letting Peebs graze more and more after our rides. I didn't want to upset his tummy too much so we've only been grazing for 10-15 minutes at time. And there's been some more loose manure but starting last weekend I noticed that there was a lot of watery discharge down his butt and hock. So much so that when I scrubbed his legs, he lost some hair along the back of his hock. I figured it was the grass, and haven't grazed him since but our poop problem continues. His manure returned to normal, maybe a touch on the soft side if I'm being super poop picky, but the watery discharge is still there.
I've got a call into the vet, who is coming out Monday to do shots, and have ordered some BioSponge
just to be safe. He's fine otherwise, eating and drinking normally. He's gained wait and muscle since I got him so I'm not worried about ulcers but maybe I should. I just feel bad that his butt and hind legs are constantly gross and that I have wash him almost daily.
