So her temp was 102.9 and then 102.7; one taken yesterday, one today. I went ahead with the Today treatment but continued to massage which surprisingly she doesn't mind me doing. She was content to munch on hay for awhile. This afternoon around 4, she surprised me going to and accepting grain just like her old self! And while I forced some fluids down her early in the day, she took a couple of nice long drinks of warm water. She seems perked up as she came out of the barn to nose around. The bag is still hard but I have been massaging a bit. I will try again. And I can definitely give her some pine branches. Thanks for encouragement! It has been a rollercoaster ride; one I want to be over...You're in for a slog...it's very hard doing the massage around the clock every three hours but hopefully it'll be effective. Give her vitamin c every time you massage 1500+mgs. Start at the bottom and work up then the reverse. Up theN down and back again then repeat and repeat for about 30+ mins.
Hang in there!
Have you taken her temp? Don't give the banamine if it's below 101.5 because it can cause a drop. She's turning down food/grain? Can you give her some fresh pine branches? They're also packed with vit c and might pick her up a bit.
