OK I finally installed x-ray disc from hospital, so here we go.
These 2 are x-rays that led to Badgers admission. OK I don't know how to do that fancy drawing on top of pic that DD does so......This is the large colon: the bright white sort of banana shape at the bottom of x-ray (bottom of large colon) is the large sand accumulation, approx 3"x7"
Different contrast on x-ray. You can see the kind of nipple shape here at the bottom just like in above image. There are wispy areas off to the right, that is sand in the intestines. In the center there is a white blob just off to the right that is sand as well
This is his x-ray upon discharge 9 days later. Large colon; look at bottom and you can see just a small thin section on sand.
Remember the nice Doc said he would give a 2fer, x-ray Pistol and Pedro for the price of one.
So this is Pedro's large colon x-ray. You can see at the bottom even thinner line of sand. I was so freaked by Badgers huge accumulation that I had run up to the Pasadena area and bought 80 pounds of the same psyllium powder they use at the Equine Hosp and immediately started Pistol, Pedro and Carb on it. So this was 5 days on that product, who knows what it was before I started.
These are Pistols x-rays. The 2nd one is a slightly higher contrast so you can see the thin line of sand leading up the leaf-shaped area of sand.
In case you are interested I finally found a no sugar and actually no carb pancake syrup. It's pretty runny and the psyllium really doesn't stick as well as it does to the banana slurry I was making but the banana slurry was high in starch/carbs. http://www.waldenfarms.com/products/syrup_pancake.html I had found several no sugar varieties but they still had high carbs. Now of course they all have artificial sweeteners like Splenda. I am still researching effects of that on equine. Because there really isn't any other circumstance I can find that a donkey or horse would be given any artificial sweetener!
