Drifter is colicing

Vets are on the way out. Just asking for jingles. Vet student is out here with us as well. Gums are tacky. No gut sounds on top but slight ones toward the bottom of his abdomen. Just asking for prayers and well wishes. I have gone through a lot with him and could not stand to lose him now .

Thank you all. The vet recommended walking him only when he was actively trying to lay down. Otherwise she said to let him stand quietly. He is very depressed and uninterested. Not like himself at all. Trying to not freak out yet.
