When she was appr. 3 weeks old she developed diarrhea. At first I figured its because of her dam came into foal heat..But it would not stop.
I had the vet out and we ran every test in the book. Every test came back normal, bloodcount, bacteria..all good. So I tried..dewrorming, Probios, VBS, 911, biosponge, bepto bisma, diarSanyl, the generic liquid Immodium, feed through biotics..Nothing..still diarrhea ..all the while she was playing and growing and eating and just fine. Exept her back side told a story.
I now used a product and emptied One bottle..it takes very little..its called Ration Plus..and for the first time in 1 year we have firm patties. I just thought I would pass this along. it treats the gut bacteria..not just stops the diarrhea ..rather healing than stopping. I found the best price right here in case anybody is interested.

I would treat her for an ulcer... sometimes a baby can have a chronic one especially after what she went through.
Also have you tried switching her from a sweet feed( has a lot of sugar in it) to a pelleted easy to digest feed, like a senior pellet.
( I am not a vet, my opinions or hopefully helpful information comes from my own experience from having horses for 30 some years. Please contact your vet!)

I tried acidophilous with great sucess, several years ago with a colt who'd undergone colic surgery and rounds of anti-biotics.
