Well... Roughly a month after our first colic incident, it looks like we are facing another... :(
Today when I went out to the barn where I am boarding I instantly noticed my poor mare pawing and splashing her water bucket. Right away I knew she had a belly ache.
I made her a mash of pellets, bran, and a full cup of psyllium. At first she wasn't at all interested and just continued pawing near the food, obviously in pain.
I then gave her a shot of Dipyrone to help her with the pain. Shortly after that kicked in she ate all of the mash that I had made for her.
With the pain meds in her system she was no longer pawing over the next 3 1/2 hours that I was there.
I'm at a loss for why she is colicing yet again. Did the sand not clear out the first time? Is it the extreme heat we have been having?
Prayers/thoughts/suggestions are all welcome!!!
