Hi all. I am just seeking some reassurance. Sloane colicked earlier this week. It started Sunday morning when I found him lying down in his stall. He does this occasionally, but this time He would get up and then lie down again and I knew something was wrong. He had no temperature, few gut sounds and rapid respiration. My barn manager suggested banamine and walking him around and thought it might be gas. I telephoned the vet who approved these measures and advised feeding him small amounts during the day, all of which I did. By evening he seemed better and was eating, but the next day he was lying down again and I called the vet. A rectal revealed an impaction but no twisting. He got tubed with fluid and mineral oil and put on a soupy mash for feed. He has a bad tooth which is scheduled for extraction so he is now on bute for pain. His feed was switched from whole oats, which he was aparently unable to chew and was just swallowing down, to a senior feed. He is eating, pooping small amounts regularly, but not drinking much. He is going out with his pasture mates. The vet is not concerned saying he gets water from his feed. I know it is silly but I feel like he is now depressed. He is a very mellow horse but now seems kind of down. Can it take 4 days to recover from this kind of colic?
