Equine Colic

Colic: No. 1 Killer of Horses

Colic, by far, is the number one killer of horses. Compared to other deadly conditions, cases associated with colic experience the highest fatality rate. The basic diagnosis generally associated with colic is abdominal and spasmodic pain within the intestine. It is an infection of the digestive system. Some of the most common behaviors by horses suffering from colic can include the following:

  • Violently pawing at the ground or kicking
  • Profuse sweating
  • Rolling or lying on their backs
  • Sitting on haunches like a dog
  • Extreme high or low temperature
  • Elevated heart or respiration rate

The symptoms of colic are the same no matter what the cause. However, it is important to properly diagnose the animal before trying to treat it without any veterinary assistance, which could lead to additional problems for the infected horse.

Practical Solutions

The following will explain some practical solutions to many animal life threatening situations using natural, drug-free, food supplements. The many pains and discomforts that our animals endure can, to a great extent, be reduced to a more tolerable state.

Colic, the largest killer of equines, is an infection of the bowel. Rather than injecting drugs to numb the animal and doing nothing to relieve the problem, it is much better to tie up the organisms involved, bind up toxins being produced in the bowel, increase peristalsis, and move the offending material and toxins out of the system.
