    My nubian has really bad diarrhea She got into the alfalfa hay last night---What can I do for her??? Or should I let her system work it out??? She is behaving fine other than the diarrhea. Her tail is covered in the poo.

    I would get her some ProBios for now and watch for bloat and laminitis. I wouldn't plug her up with an anti-scour medication at this point.

    I agree with Kate and let it run itself out ...nope you dont want to stop her up...give the Probios and maybe some baking soda if yu dont have the Probios. It should clear up soon.
