COLIC Threat LEVEL

FIND OUT WHAT CAUSES THIS DREADED CONDITION AND WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP PREVENT IT.

HORSE HEALTH

As horse owners, one of the most universally dreaded situations we all fear is colic. Your horse comes in for his evening dinner but is clearly not right. Some colicking horses are simply not interested in eating; some lie quietly on the ground looking at their abdomen. Others are more dramatic about their pain—stretching, pawing, getting up and down, and rolling.

It’s a helpless feeling to watch a horse experience abdominal pain while you await your veterinarian’s arrival. An often-asked question is, “Why is my horse colicking?”

CAUSES OF COLIC

Horses can develop colic even under the best of care, seemingly for no apparent reason. Intestinal pain occurs from a variety of causes, but some are related to management practices.
