Reply To: loose manure on hay, not pasture

Topics Started: 0Replies Posted: 3

Loose manure on hay while not on grass can be a symptom of hind-gut ulcers. The treatment is to remove all long stem fiber from the diet to alleviate the aggravation to the hind gut and to treat with sucralfate.

It would be worthwhile to discuss hind gut ulcers with your vet, and perhaps run a course of treatment as you would for hind gut ulcers and see what you get as a result. Can’t hurt, might help.
