Colicky horses need quick relief
Colic in the general horse population has been estimated at 11% annually. Symptoms of colic in horses include abdominal pain, cramps, frequent attempts to urinate, biting or nipping at the stomach area, pacing, pawing and/or scraping, repeated lying down and rising, rolling, teeth grinding, excess salivation and loss of appetite.
The most common causes of colic are gastrointestinal in nature and subside with appropriate treatment; however some causes of colic can prove fatal without surgical intervention.
The natural way
It was once thought that feeding a horse after exercise (and not before) may lessen the risk of colic. However, recent research suggests that it may be beneficial to horses if they are fed a small amount before exercise. Turnout is also thought to reduce the likelihood of colic and it is recommended that a horse receive up to 18 hours of grazing time each day.
Feeding a horse restricted carbohydrates, making sure feed and drinking water is clean and preventing the ingestion of dirt or sand by using an elevated feeding surface can all serve to lessen the risk of colic. Horses should stick to a regular feeding schedule and undergo regular de-worming and dental checkups. A regular diet that does not change substantially in content (or proportion) and the prevention of heatstroke can also serve to promote easy digestion and gastrointestinal harmony.
