Sand colic!! Help!!
is there anything i can do besides giving her the selium (sand clear or other assorted products of that type) to help my filly pass sand quicker or make her more comfortable?
we already had the vet out and he said that mild discomfort is normal and that, while she is still obviously uncomfortable to limit her to wet grass, soaked hay and some soaked pellets but otherwise she needs water and hand walking and to be kept in the stall on the mats (to prevent more ingestion of sand) she started on the selium and while her vitals are normal and she is pooping and willing to eat, she is gasey and uncomfortable often laying down (no rolling) and shifting around on her feet. she has normal gut sounds but just seems a more bloated than usual. anyways i am just looking for a way to either make her more comfortable for the immediate future while the selium starts clearing out the sand or for something that will help her get rid of the sand quicker so she can get back to feeling better. any suggestions are appreciated. thans for your time!!
