Symptoms of Colic

Colic is the most common disease among horses today and is the #1 natural killer of horses.

Colic can range from severe to life threatening in which case surgery may be needed to correct the problem.

Today with better nutritional knowledge and advanced de-worming products the cases of colic are most often milder than severe.


The causes are many and varied but I will list a few:

[a] .. Overfeeding (feed room bingeing)
[b] .. Access to sandy paddocks
[c] .. Parasites
[d] .. Mouldy hay or feed
[e] .. Non-consistent feeding times
[f]  .. Fine hay & feed
[g] .. Changes in feed (make gradually)

Symptoms of Colic:

[a] .. Restlessness
[b] .. Little or no stomach sounds
[c] .. Lack of appetite
[d] .. Lying down and getting up repeatedly
[e] .. Biting or kicking at the belly
[f]  .. Depression
[g] .. Sweating
[h] .. Pawing the ground
[i] .. Stretching as if to urinate (but don't)
[j] .. Small or no droppings

Keep this in mind; a horse lives for food & loves nothing better than to eat - eat and eat!

If your horse goes off his feed or seems disinterested in food all together, something is wrong! At the first signs of colic in your horse call your veterinarian immediately for help until he/ she arrives.
