Ok tar and feather me if you need but I must say this................... I have been reading these posts on another site with a forum and there has been a few here to about "I can't call the vet because we don't have the money" well here's a newsflash if you can't afford to call the vet then you can't afford to have a horse.. When you decide to get animals whether it be a dog, cat or horse you must have the smartness that one day you will be faced with an emergency with this animal. So if you can't call the vet you get this idea I will post on a site and see if someone can help. Every response ends with please call the vet mean time your horse is suffering another day. This is so irresponsible on the owners part that it's just inhumane. You read where the humane society comes in and takes horses away for no feed well I believe they should be taken away for insufficient vet care. I know alot of vets that if they have clients that run into some financial problems but have a sick animal they usually will work something out. Unless it's Kendall Road they want a credit card almost on arrival. So please don't post I have no money to call the vet.
