Equine Colic

Equines (Horses, donkeys and mules) are monogastric animals with their distinct behaviour. Colic being a clinical symptom complex is very common among equines as compared to other species and can be fatal also. Equine colic is identifiable by symptoms like rolling, flank watching, pawing, sweating, increased body temperature, etc. Colic in horses can be diagnosed using a variety of techniques, including history, abdominal auscultation, rectal palpation, physical examination, and ultrasonography. Equine colic can be treated with surgery, decompression of the stomach and large intestine, analgesics, rehydration, etc. Colic is the most prevalent symptomatic sickness in equines as a result, and it has a significant mortality and morbidity rate.
