She coliced again today...


I wasn't there. I was at school. The BO gave her 10 cc of banamine around 1:00 pm, and she was perfectly fine when I got out there at 4:00.


What is the world is going on?


When she coliced the first time, it was mild. Lethargic. Refused to eat. Hung her head low. Vitals slightly elevated. Banamine, and she was fine in 45 minutes. This colic was the same.

I will! I'm really scared... I hope it's something I can deal with and make it better... I tried to get in touch with my vet today, but she was on farm calls all day. I'm calling first thing in the morning to make an appointment. And ask what I need to be doing in the meantime.

I asked what the colic symptoms were because an EPSM horse can present what 'looks' like colic symptoms, when it's not....puting nose to side of stomach, nuzzling stomach area, flank muscles tensing up, being touchy when groomed etc.

I don't think it's that. The banamine cleared it up way too quickly. Normal urine color, normal hydration, no tense muscles, no short stepping, etc. But who knows.


Something interesting. I was cleaning the barn yesterday. I fed Baby Girl in her stall on Monday night. I found she had only eaten half of her food. I thought she ate it all. She was very eager to eat. Half way through, she just stopped. So something is hitting her immediately?

Hay or grain?
