Hoping you and Chinga are doing ok! Rascal was colicing at the drop of a hat, he kept eating the magnolia tree leaves! Check, double check, and then check again for weeds, any kind of trash, see if he is eating bark, or anything like that. Rascal will eat anything if he is bored. So, I make sure he isn't bored.....

Nothing in his paddock which could be causing it. I spoke to the vets and they believe that the colicing is a result of what's going on. I will go see him tomorrow morning and I'll keep you all updated. They said it was best if I try and see him a routine times, but he has 24/7 care there.

I'm so sorry to hear this.
I hope you get answers soon and also he recovers soon.
Fingers crossed!

I really feel for you, my horse is still recovering from a bout of colic that the vet still can't say what exactly caused it. Sending Chinga lots of healing vibes please keep the updates coming.

Thankyou very much to everyone who has replied. Sorry I haven't been able to write much - I've been running between places. I honestly have no new information for you all! But, the vets said they'd call tonight and let me know.

I assume your vet would have already let you know if sand were the problem, but every time my horses have coliced in Florida, it was because of sand. I don't know if that is an issue where you are.

Good luck with him. I know how hard it is to be helpless and just hope they recover.

We've ruled out all the 'basic' types of colic. What we believe is that the colic is being caused by whatever is going on. I'm planning on going down as soon as I hear from the vet, so I'll let you guys know.

Please do. Following health threads like a banshee the last week or so. Did I mention also saying lots of prayers for all you guys? :)

Today he got an ultrasound and a large amount of fluid was found in his stomach. So, they took a sample of this and sent it off to be tested and they're doing a full set of blood tests as well. They currently are looking into a large mass in his stomach or an infection.
