Sand Colic In Horses – Podcast #039

The Equine Practice Inc, The Horse's Advocate

Sand colic in horses is defined as a blockage in the digestive tract due to the accumulation of sand. It is common where horses graze on land with a sand base. But even if your horses live nowhere near sand, this podcast has value. Your horses may experience the root cause of sand accumulation even up in the mountains where no beach can be seen.

I report on a podcast from the Equine Veterinary Journal, where they interview Dr. Ben Sykes in New Zealand. His interest as an equine surgeon in sand colic comes from years of looking at cases presented to him. He reviews the literature and science behind sand colic and gives recommendations. And I add my twist to this.
