Colic occurs in a horse’s intestines. It is painful, in addition to being the primary cause of death in horses when it involves intestinal constrictions. A horse suffering from colic has no appetite, is lethargic, hits its belly, or rolls on the ground to ease the pain.
Feeding your horse lots of quality forage daily meets a horse’s fundamental needs, helps ensure good health and is the best way to prevent this problem. Hay fully fills the horse’s digestive tract, reducing the risk of colic (the primary cause of death in horses) and preventing gastric reflux. Our blends combine the benefits of fibre with protein contents specifically measured to facilitate digestion.
Our recommendations: Feeding your horse lots of forage daily is the best way to prevent this problem. Our Gastro Shield supplement may also be given on a daily basis, along with our Daily Essential supplement.
