And what were the symptoms?
Vet said it was probably from bad hay. Dont know for sure.
Symptoms were stiffness and excessive slobbering, confusion, hyperventilating, uncontrollable defacation and urination, almost like his body was disconnected from his brain. My initial thought was hydrophobe (rabies), but the Vet ruled that out with a blood sample.
Behavior went on for 4 days before I put him down.
