Overview to Equine Colic
colic is a condition in horses which causes severe abdominal pain mainly
due to bowel conditions. The abdominal pain due to equine colic is caused
by either the not so serious accumulations of gas in the large intestine
or severe conditions such as twisted bowel which can lead to death if
not treated soon. Equine colic is one of the most dangerous and costly
medical problems in horses.
This medication when used to cure equine colic alleviates the pain and bowel spasm associated with simple spasmodic colic. In addition, this medication provides a highly effective mechanism for curing equine colic, as it is both spasmolytic and analgesic. Overeating, constant swallowing of air, a sudden change in diet, and consumption of moldy feed are some of the common causes of equine colic.Turnout on the wet pastures of early spring, a heavy meal before work, and feeding or watering before proper cooling after work are some of the other causes of equine colic.
The signs of equine colic vary according to the severity of the particular conditions. Only very few horses exhibit all the signs of equine colic at one time. Some signs of equine colic associated with mild to moderate pain include pawing the ground, sweating, looking around at the belly, restlessness, lack of appetite, stamping the hind feet, and lying down. Some signs of equine colic associated with more severe, unrelenting pain include pawing the ground violently, appearing drawn up or bloated in the belly, muscle tremors or straining, kicking violently, and sweating profusely.
