My draft horse has the runs but its not diarrhea what do i do ?

Report as

The runs is basically diarrhea. Causes can be poor phosphorous/calcium ratio, a heavy worm load, weeds in your pasture or even the heat. Details needed would be age of horse, feeding program and deworming schedule. In general though, take a good look at your feeding program, check your pasture and. If its hot there, give it a day or two. Still having issues, call the vet.

Make sure he has plenty of water available because he will dehydrate quickly if not.

It will be important if you call a vet to give him medication. This is because the runs could have been caused by several complications and so it will not be appropriate to administer any medication.
