    Please Keep Chinga In Your Minds - Colic -

    Poor horse has very bad colic. Half an hour of kicking, rolling, pawing and laying down until the bet arrived. First he sedated Chinga and then proceeded too put a tube down his nose (unsure what this is called) and first they put some water through and a fair amount came back threw. Afterwards they put some paraffine oil threw - which will hopefully show some results later on.

    Checked his temperature, pulse, ect. Came back better then expected - which is good. So now he is on pain reflief and its really only a waiting game right now. Please keep him in your minds as the next 24 hours is going too be tuff.

    Oh I am so sorry to hear this! I will definitely keep Chinga in my thoughts.

    If it's any help, my first gelding went through a terrible case of colic. Had the vet working on him for hours and hours with a tube down his nose and he ended up pulling through it, before they had to operate.

    Tell Chinga to keep strong, we'd all miss him too much!

    Thankyou very much (: The pain relief lasts around 8 hour so hopefully it will be a dramaless 8 hours. If it wears off before then we know the pain scale is more then large.

    I'm glad to hear that Chinga is comfortable now. In the future, and hopefully it never happens again, don't allow her to lie down. Keep your horse moving. Walk her, force her to keep moving until the vet gets there. It can be very dangerous for her if she goes down.

    her = he.

    I was keeping him up as much as possible, but due too the fact that I'm about 5'6 and his 16.3 - ish that was almost mission impossible.

    What I did when my horse was colicing, was I walked him around in an arena or anywhere you can walk him just keep him standing and out of his stall. I kept him walking at a steady pace and if he slowed down and tried to throw himself onto the ground I would exert every ounce of my 5'6 110 pound self to prevent him from going down and keep him walking.

    After that the barn owner helped me out some by making a bran mash with electrolyte supplements in it and my horse was very tempted by it and nibbled on it till he drank his water and pooped a few times and was feeling much better.

    Just a few tips if heaven forbid it happens again! Glad everything is ok with him!
