Bedding of wood pellets that have been allowed to crumble into sawdust. Also notice the hoof marks in the sawdust. The circular drag marks can occur for many reasons including an uneasy horse with colic.

Discussion:

Colic is pain usually coming from the abdomen of the horse.

This was a FREE hour long web broadcast via Google Hangouts and Webinar Jam where I discussed colic in the horse.

Even though my veterinary practice is limited to horsemanship based traditional equine dentistry, I really love to teach and I use this time to help horse owners understand what they feel is a complicated issue.

Here are the key points:

  • There are only TWO types of colics: Medical and Surgical
  • Knowing the difference is important in determining a course of action.
  • The time it takes to get a horse to surgery is directly proportional to the success of the outcome.
  • It is better to take a surgical horse (high heart rate, pain unresponsive to medication) to surgery than to wait for signs to progress.

Join me now and learn the basics of colic and how to save money, and possibly your horse’s life.

Horse A – RF 6 months after changing farrier. There is more that need to be done, but note the shortened toe and the rounded toe. This horse was much more comfortable standing as seen by him standing equally over his front hooves compared to 6 months earlier.
