    Just wanted to share..

    I don't know if this is the right spot but I just wanted to share!

    I had my first experiance with colic today. I went to feed at 745 am at my barn and our big ottb Jake was down. I have never expericanced colic before, I immediately called my BO who called the vet who came out and I got to help. I learned alot. We have poor Jake on IVs and he still is not doing that great.

    Colic can be a scary thing.

    Was Jake dehydrated maybe? Did the have to pump his stomach? :( I hope he pulls through. Colic is so common, and so deadly... best wishes!

    I'll pray for you, horses are so prone to colic. It scares me sometimes thinking about it... I hope he pulls through

    Thanks guys! He was not dehydrated as far as I know. Yes, they had to tube him and pump mineral oil in.
