Question stomach pains after eating??

I have a 2yr Paint cross. After she has had her evening hard feed, she seems to get stomach pains. Signs look as if it's Colic, digging the ground, bitting the tummy and wanting to lay down, but the both times it has happened the vet has said that it's Spasmodic Colic. I am starting to think that there is more to it then that type of colic. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Sounds like stomach ulcers. Can you find a better vet? (By better, I mean one who will actually look into it and try to find the cause and give treatment)

Ulcers or acidosis are the first things id be considering, both of which can cause colic. Most often due to inappropriate feed and/or feeding practices. Grain free, low nsc (sugar/starch), high fibre diets and little and often feeding, rather than large or infrequent 'meals' is important for horses.

Ditto everyone, especially ^^^^^this.

If she's on grain or any sort of product with grain in it, get her off right away

I would just feed her hay until a DIFFERENT vet can examine her. If you feel she needs something in her feed pan, please just buy a bag of timothy pellets and don't feed her more than an 8 ounce measuring cup at a time.

That is about one pound dry and most certainly add some water to them, to get more liquid moving thru her.

If she is hesitant to eat hay, the timothy pellets would be an excellent way to get forage into her, to keep her digestive system working. You'd have to feed her several times a day, however.

Horses with ulcers or acidosis cannot eat any sort of grain, nor do they seem to be able to handle more than 1 to 1-1/2 pounds of feed at one time.

Yes, ulcers are very common. It is not uncommon to find them in weanlings

Hope this helps and welcome to the forum

Thank you for your opinions, it is greatly appreciated! I have not altered/changed her feeding. She gets fed a biscuit of hay in the morning which has lucernce, rye and barley and in the evening 2 scoops of Oaten Chaff, 1 scoop of Lucerne chaff, half a scoop of ICE, a cup of Microluppins all mixed with a tablespoon of seaweed meal, a tablespoon of garlic, 50ml of applecider vingear and a cup of water. Plus a biscuit of grass hay at night. This all has been happening in the last 2-3 weeks.

I am taking her to the clinic to get her checked for Ulcers.

Once again, thankyou to all!!

Well Palomine asked what I feed my horse to determine what her stomach pains could be from and maybe not feed her those types of horse feed. Sorry paintedpatures, I am not real good at communicating myself.

That sounds like a lot of stuff, is there a reason she needs all that and isn't on hay and some sort of simple grain?
