My poor sweet mare is suffering from sand colic. The vet came out this morning, his diagnosis was that she was loaded with sand. He gave her pain meds to help make her more comfortable and advised me to feed her soaked hay pellets with 2 cups of psyllium for the next two weeks (no dry food) and then 1/2 a cup of psyllium from then on.
She was obviously hungry despite being in pain and was still looking for food. However, she was looking for alfalfa and wasn't so thrilled with the timothy pellets and psyllium.
The good news is she is drinking water and not thrashing about. Now we just have to hope that she gets hungry enough to eat her food with the psyllium. Anyone ever dealt with sand colic before? How did you deal with it?
Hoping my girl will be okay :(
