My mare recently had a mild,mild case of gassy colic and some traces of sand as well. She is much better, thank God, but I want to be better safe than sorry and start feeding her psyllium.
Since her recent occurrence with (mild) colic should I just feed her the 5 oz., for a week regimen right off the bat? Would the small amounts not affect her at all (stir up the colic)? She isn`t fed grain due to the fact that she does well without it.
Alsoooo, I want to switch her straight alfalfa (which I heard is not recommended) to a grass/alfalfa mix. Do I feed that gradually or since it already has alfalfa can I just feed it "cold turkey"? <-- haha my new favorite term
