Taking Aim at the Causes & Prevention of Colic

As your horse transitions to winter, there are demands placed on his digestive system that can lead to problems.

  • Decreased water consumption can cause dehydration colic.
  • Changing from fresh grass to hay can lead to impactions.
  • Increased stall confinement can increase ulcers risk.

In fact, change of any kind can lead to digestive upset. With the “season of changes” underway, Dr. Getty’s teleseminar takes aim at the causes and prevention of colic.

The teleseminar emphasizes:

  • What is colic and what types are there?
  • Role of diet in avoiding colic
  • Preventing your horse from "inhaling" hay
  • How to make changes in the diet
  • Prevent mycotoxin ingestion
  • Deworming and colic prevention
  • Avoiding travel stress
  • Cecal impactions
  • Sand colic
  • Enteroliths
  • If it happens -- what to do while waiting for the vet to arrive
