Description

Support for horses with Colic

Colic symptoms appear suddenly, not gradually and can include:

  • Pawing, Rolling, Bloating, Sweating, Distress, Uneasiness
  • Loss of interest in food and water
  • Peculiar postures, such as sitting or stretching
  • Absence of gut sounds
  • Decreased faeces production and/or dryness of manure

 

Some common causes of colic include:

• High grain-based diets/low-forage diets without enough roughage.

• Mouldy or tainted feed or an abrupt change in feed

• Parasite infestation, especially from worms. • Lack of water consumption, which can in turn cause an impaction to occur.

• Sand ingestion and accumulation in the bowel over time

Note: Obstructions or twisted intestines can be potentially life threatening and require surgery.

  • Remove all sources of food and water. Because colic is often linked to your horse’s food or water source, it’s important to keep him away from any potential dangers until a cause is found
  • Get your horse up and walking
  • Call your veterinary doctor- It’s important to get your vet out as soon as possible to take a look at your horse and help make a quick diagnosis.
