[SIZE=14pt]Hi All,[/SIZE]

Wanted to ask you guys to say a little prayer for our little 5 month old colt TwoToneBlu (Tony)!


He's a very sick little boy! It all started yesterday with the squirts and I noticed a few pin worms, so we wormed him! Seemed Ok last night! We went out this morning and he was laying in the pasture and he kept looking back at his belly!

Thought he was having a mild colic so I gave him 1/2cc of Banimine! He seemed Ok for a while, then we were checking him and his temp spiked to 104.8!
Called our vet and he said to bring him in fast! His heart was racing and temp was 104 when the vet checked it! They took blood to check for an infection and he gave him a shot of Banimine, Nexel, Pinicillin and some probious! He's keeping him until the blood work come back and they get his fever under control! His Mom, Icy knew he was sick and led him right into the hospital! She's such a good mom for a first timer! Please keep may baby boy in your thoughts and prayers!

Bill

Update-

[SIZE=14pt]Hi All,
[/SIZE]

Thank you so much for all your prayers and good thoughts! Little Tony is doing great today!
His temp is down to nornal and all his blood work was within the norm also! We just got home with him and Mom! He has to take Nexel and Pinnicilin and 1/2 cc of bamimine for the next 3 days! Our vet said our quick action in bringing him in is what helped him get better so quickly! They checked his blood before we brought him home and it is normal! So Tony is on the mend!


Thanks Again for all your support!

Bill & Wanalynn

He'll be in my prayers tonight! So hard to see these little ones get sick -- and it is so fast when they do! Hoping all goes well for him and he'll be up and romping around again in no time. Keep us posted, please.

Bill and Wanalynn,

I'm so sorry to hear that your little guy is so sick. It sounds like you have him in a very good place.

I will keep little TwoToneBlu (Tony) in my prayers!

Hugs to both of you and a special hug for Angel!!!

Prayers coming, Bill and Wanalynn for Little Tony. I to know how hard it is to have a sick little one. We have had 2 foals this year with Dirrhea. Just got our colt over it, and still working with Princesa. We had them at the Vet and ran every test he could think. Lucky for us, ours turned out to be a salt block. But ours only had Dirrhea. No temps, no nothing else. I will sure pray your Tony will be okay. He is in the best place and having his mommy with him will help.

Best wishes and prayers

Hugs Vicky
