Equine Colic

Jan 5 • 1 minute read

Colic is a term used to describe abdominal pain in horses. It can range in severity from mild discomfort to life-threatening conditions. Common symptoms of colic in horses include:

  • Pawing at the ground
  • Lying down and rolling
  • Sweating
  • Loss of appetite
  • Change in bowel movements
  • Unusual posture or position (e.g., standing with legs stretched out or tucked under the body)

If you suspect that your horse is experiencing colic, it is important to seek veterinary care as soon as possible. Colic can be caused by a wide range of factors, including digestive issues, blockages, and other medical conditions. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause of the colic and may include medication, surgery, or other interventions. It is important to follow your veterinarian's instructions carefully to ensure the best possible outcome for your horse.
