What Is Colic?

Colic is a painful problem in your horse’s abdomen. It can be due to something as simple as a gut spasm from a change in diet or routine or as serious as twisting a part of the intestine.

Because colic can be unpredictable and potentially life-threatening, it’s a serious concern for horse owners. Horses are naturally prone to colic, but thankfully the majority of horses experiencing colic respond well to treatment on the farm.

Our veterinarians know how delicate these situations are and we are ready to respond any time of the day or night.
