Dinio's stay at Ultuna University Hospital

Av Tina Karlsson - 13 augusti 2011 09:28

On August the 9th we had a sceduled appointment with the University Hospital for animals at Ultuna in Uppsala. We arrived and the vet Gaby van Galen interviewed us for about 1 hour. I have typed down everything regarding Dinios several colics, the training, his feeding and daily activities over all. The vet decided that she had to do several examinations such as: testing the blood, testing of menure, ultrasound of stomach and kidneys, gastroscopy of the belley and that he had to stay for a few days. On August the 10th the vet called me and reported about the findings. Unfortunately the blood test showed that the kreatinine levels where high, about 200 and normal value is 140. This indicates that the kidneys are damage. How ever all other values in the blood test where normal. The ultrasound hadn't showed anything abnormal, everything looked good.

August the 11th, new call from the vet, reporting on findings of minor gastric ulcers, a new blood test showed still increased value of kretinine. Now they would continue to exam the urine and wait for the result of the menure test.

August the 12th, the vet informed me that the urin test showed normal values and in the menure test they had found a small amount of strongylus eggs. The have also counted how much water he drinks and the messure showed 48 liters in 1,5 day, which considered normal. So today I could take him home.

Probably his colic problems is a combination of several small problems, parasites, dental problem (they corrected his teeth during his stay), gustric ulsers and stress.

She wanted me to continue the same diet, give him normal exercise, deworm him, control the blood in one month and if the colic appears again - immediately return to the University Hospital.

So my sister and I drove up to Uppsala to fetch him. He was a bit surprised to see us but happy of course. We had some trouble to load him on to the trailer, but after about 30 minutes he entered. When we came home and off loaded him, he greated the other horses loudly, danced when he entered the stable and was really happy to be home again.

Today I drove up to the stable early morning. Dinio was just fine. Due to his stay at Ultuna for about 4 days, I thought it was better that I leaded him to his paddock. And it was really wise, because he was so happy indeed, danced all the way from the stable to the paddock and exploded in pure happines when I let him go.

Hej Saga! Oh så roligt att höra från Dig. Hoppas allt är bra med Dig och Peach. Har varit några gånger i sommar på Ljusterö och hört att det är bra och att du kommit igång med henne. Ja, det är en pärs när de är dåliga. Man mår ju inte så bra själv då. Hoppas att du snart kan vara med på dressyrträningarna framöver. Skulle vara väldigt roligt om du kunde komma med.

    Kom ihåg mig
