Badger's IV cath had been removed before I got there this morning, which I take as a good sign. Vet was in an er surgery and I didn't get to talk to him and he didn't call me.
I have some questions for all of you. What would you recommend as a low starch low sugar feed to mix the psyllium in? I have been researching and many LS feed are alfalfa based. Triple Crown showed no alfalfa or corn but main ingredient is wheat middlings. Looking for no alfalfa or corn but don't know much about wheat middlings.
Regarding what to moisten the feed pellets with: vet uses Aunt Jemima syrup! I have been blending banana and water to make a runny paste but it just takes such a large amount of feed for the volume of psyllium to stick to. None of the donkeys have ever gotten feed before this. I was thinking maybe carrot juice? I will have to research sugar and starch uptake on the juices. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
