We had another episode of colic a few days ago, and a friend had mentioned that maybe it has to do with a selenium deficiency. But from what I have read, if it has to do with selenium at all, colic would be cause from too much. Is that correct?
It was a very mild case of colic, a walk and some gas-ex fixed her right up. But it's only been about 7 weeks since Rain died from a bad episode of colic. Another contributing factor, is the mare that had colic most recently is Rain's full sister, so it could be genetic. The two of them also used to chew the walls in their stalls pretty badly too. So I am thinking it has more to do with genetics/ wood chewing then it does Selenium.
I am just looking for any information and opinions about selenium and horses. Thanks :)
