Our hourse Whisky Jack is 34 years old. Believe it or not he has had his first colic ever. The make it short he went to an equine facility friday. He had been very dehidrated. He recieved a lot of Iv fluids and oil and by sat. Night they told us he could go home but they did not know the reason for the colic. He is on reduced feed four times a day and though he had made three small piles (very greasy do to the oil I guess) he has not deficated since his noon feeding or his five oclock feeding. He is not drinking much water at all. He did drink some out of the hose but not nearly enough. He has been eating some grass so he can't feel to bad right now.
If he does not deficate by seven should we not feed him and why won't he drink if he seems to feel ok other wise? His temp was normal at noon.
