You guys are awesome, thank you so much for looking after Taruni. - Sue from Greenbank
YES! You should be very concerned if your horse is showing a decreased or lack of interest in eating and drinking. There are many conditions which could have an adverse affect on a horse’s usual appetite (such as colic). If a horse does not gain adequate nutrition and hydration their condition can quickly deteriorate, making their treatment much more difficult, expensive (they may require fluid therapy), or, in some cases, they may have to be euthanased for humane reasons. So please phone 5543 1213 immediately if your horse is not showing an interest in eating or drinking. A quick response often makes a significant impact on the physical, financial and emotional cost of dealing with their condition.
