Filly is 11 days old nursing fine, good appetite and acting fine. Looks healthy. Temp is 100.7. Nose sounds stuffy and saw a small amount of thick white mucus last night. She does also have loose stools although she does not go often. Currently checking temp twice a day and watch activity and nursing closely. Should I take her to the vet? Vet will not come to the farm too far away. Would prefer not to stress filly with a trailer trip. No good horse vets in the area and worry about good vet care. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you

I would say she has an infection. I would call the vet and see what he has to say. I think the foal needs antibiotics as soon as possible.

Lynn....how was the delivery? Typically if a foal is going to get aspiration pneumonitis, it is right around day 11...if treated early, it's much easier on the foal...after day 13, it gets tougher and tougher to get rid of, and really takes a tole on a young foal. I'd have her seen.

Just talked with vet in my area she felt just continue watching and taking temp. She did not feel it was necessary to start antibiotics unless fever. I'm going to pull blood in check white count which will help be feel better. Please any input would help. Thank you

Lynn, I posted last night, but for some reason it didn't get in. I think I didn't wait long enough for it to load, before going to another thread.

I hope your foal is fine, and it sounds like you have a lot of experience, so I am presuming the filly had her IgG checked? If it is good, then I have no suggestions. If it was not good, I'd get her to the vet as soon as possible.

Jos, who hosts this site, has said more than once, in response to a young, sick foal, words to the effect of, "foals this age can go downhill very quickly."

You might want to look at the thread, "Help! 2 Week Old Filly Sick," posted by Candi.

I sure hope all turns out well. How is she today?

Filly is doing fine the stuffy nose has gone away along with the loose stool. I continue to monitor the temp and it staying under 102. She is gaining weight and draining mom as well as eating a little portion of feed. Yes I read about the 2 week old foal and it worried me so I've been extremely watchful of my filly. Thank you for you comments.

Lynn, I'm so glad she is better. I can imagine that it makes everything much tougher when you throw in a vet that is some distance away. Sounds like she will get better from here. I am so glad for you.
