What is Colic?
Jo Suthers, Veterinary Surgeon at B&W Equine Vets explains what are the signs, symptoms and treatment of colic and how can we prevent our horse from suffering from colic.
Should we walk our horse if they have colic, when do we know if it’s colic, are some horses more prone to colic than others, is there anything we can do to stop our horses suffering from colic, and how long do we have when they colic before its really serious? All these questions answered plus more on the #HorseHour Podcast.
