Little Saffron's Sepsis is NOT gone!
« on: July 23, 2016, 11:53:52 AM »

 :-[Hi everyone...
Here is an update on little Saffron who got Sepsis her second week of life. She was doing great on the two different antibiotics that our vet, Ashley put her on.
On Tuesday this week, we knew that it would be her last day covered by the long acting meds, and that evening Saffron spiked a fever of 102, so we immediately put a call in to our vet and she told us to give her Banamine. Unfortunately, the Sepsis is still in her system and Ashley arrived on Wednesday morning first thing to give her another long acting shot. Saffron is now resting comfortably and the fever is gone. We will give her another long acting shot next week and go from there.
As you can imagine we are stressed about this horrible illness. Ashley believes that Chelsea, Saffron's mama did not have adequate amounts of Colostrum for her baby and that this compromised Saffron's health. We will keep everyone posted.
Thanks for your caring.
Debbie

OMG!!  Praying for this little one.  Just got home from vacation, and this is NOT the news I wanted to see/hear.

Yes, colostrum is the key, and praying she will pull through this quickly and begin the road to health.   ;pray ;pray ;pray

It's been a couple of days, so I'm hoping she's still on the road to recovery.

Threads like this one are what I recommend for reading to anyone who is considering breeding. One must truly have a stout heart and deep pockets when undertaking the betterment of a breed.

Hi Debbie......

Here's hoping that 2017 finds you, your family and your animals doing well. How did Saffron recover? Did she experience in delays because of her illness? Has she grown into a fine Falabella yearling?

I'll let Debbie know we're looking for her!  She's had quite the "ride" this winter, and battling the cold from Lake Erie and the winter all up north are battling!  She's also running about 60+ horses now, so not sure how often she checks on the forum.  But I'll let her know we're looking for her.  I talk to her almost every day!

Chanda - YOU are so funny!!

But I agree.  The last time I dealt w/ 60 horses every day - I had 12 (on 3-4 acres of pasture - 2 miles from the barn) and the rest were boarders that I cared for at the farm we leased our pasture and mobile home lot from (mobile home lot was on same property as boarding barn & in 2006 became a NICE vet hospital! We had moved in 2004.).  We only had 10-13 stalls full (out of 24) most times - but we were off of a major highway and did overnights for race horses (mostly) and others, too.  One year, we housed part of the Olympic team over the whole weekend as they took a break from traveling.

Now I have 30 head of my own but am working a part-time/full-time job off the property and it's a lot more difficult than i remember - even with them on pasture!  The fall of 2016 was especially rough - had some things go wrong.

Also hoping everything turned out OK with Saffron!!!
