Horse emergency: Colic

Colic is feared by many horse owners because it can lead to the death of the horse. Some horses are more prone to it than others. If your horse has colic, you should act quickly and correctly.

If your horse shows symptoms such as restlessness, rolling, sweating, trembling or flehmen, this indicates colic. Horses often refuse to eat or drink water and appear apathetic. In many horses, the pulse and respiration are also elevated.

The first thing you should do is inform the veterinarian directly. In parallel, you can lead your horse, but only if the pulse is below 60 beats per minute.  You can also warm your horse with a blanket if it is very cold.
