How to spot colic.

How to spot colic.

DO YOU KNOW HOW TO SPOT COLIC IN HORSES?

Colic is not a disease; it is merely a symptom of disease. Specifically, colic indicates a painful problem in the horse's abdomen (belly), which can be caused by a number of different conditions. Less than 10% of all colic cases are severe enough to require surgery or cause the death of the horse; nevertheless, every case of colic should be taken seriously because it can be difficult to tell the mild ones from the potentially serious ones in the early stages.

Horses show signs of abdominal pain in a wide variety of ways, and usually a horse shows only a few of the signs during an episode of colic. The rule of thumb is — the more obvious the signs of pain, the more serious the problem.

If you suspect the horse is suffering from colic, we suggest that you:
• alert your veterinarian immediately;
• remove all hay and grain from the horse's surroundings;
• don't medicate without your veterinarian's approval, as pain medications can mask clinical signs;
• walk the horse around if it's continually rolling or in danger of hurting itself — but do not tire the horse with relentless walking and don't approach the animal if it's not safe;
• keep the horse under close observation until the signs of colic resolve or the veterinarian arrives.

The key to increasing the chances of a good outcome is to identify the problem early and get your veterinarian involved from the start. Consult your horse doctor for more information.

Yesterday was an eventful and emotional day.
Our resident Friesian had a colic episode. Luckily I was up in the barn when it happened. He is okay and back to his normal self, but there were some scary minutes. He has no history of colic.
This post is a reminder to all; that as the weather changes to keep a close eye on our big 4 legged friends.
✔Keep Banamine on hand in your first aid kit.
✔ make sure horses are drinking & they have access to clean water and if its freezing make sure they have access to it, or run a tank heater.
✔ have a support system in place. If you know you get overwhelmed with hard decisions make sure you have a friend that can help you through it.
✔ keep multiple vets on speed dial on your phone.

—————————————
For our region only - King/Snohomish counties:
If the air is unhealthy for humans, it is unhealthy for horses and unfortunately most horses can't come hang out in the living room with us! Horses in our area will all be exposed to wildfire smoke during this time.
We recommend no riding or other aerobic work when the AQI is above 150. Between 100-150 ("unhealthy for sensitive groups") horses with a history of respiratory problems should not be worked and healthy horses should only be lightly worked (20min or less) if absolutely necessary for their well being. Below 100 it is safe to resume work. Expect it to take about 2 weeks following smoke exposure for all the particulates to be cleared out of the lungs and remember to slowly increase your horse's work after time off.
While we can't control the smokey particulates in our horse's air, any other steps you can take to reduce dust or allergen exposure can be helpful to minimize airway inflammation. For instance, wetting down hay, avoiding dusty turnouts, and feeding food on the ground which allows airways to drain by gravity.
We do not recommend nebulizing with anything other than saline unless your horse has a previous diagnosis. Nebulizing with bronchodilators, colloid silver and essential oils can all be potentially harmful at this time. If your horse routinely nebulizes with a prescription from us, feel free to contact us for specific recommendations.
Early signs of a horse struggling with the smoke include a cough, nostril flaring and a respiratory rate at rest that is consistently above 30. Please contact us if you have concerns about these or other signs in your horses.
The good news is, despite our concern, in previous smokey periods we have not seen a widespread increase in respiratory cases. We hope with everyone making good decisions that will be true this time as well!

First Aid tip!

First Aid tip!

AHHHH! 😳

Every equine vet just cringed a little looking at this photo. PLEASE do NOT wrap your horse with only vet wrap. Vet wrap is designed to be placed over adequate padding like gamgee, rolled cotton, or a standing bandage. Under no circumstances should vet wrap be applied directly to your horse’s leg. Why? Vet wrap has no give to it when applied which can cause a loss of circulation. Vet wrap being applied incorrectly can cause bowed tendons.

Who can relate? 🙋‍♀️

Boarders: you can still come see your horses. Love on them and have horse time. We just ask that you don't lick anything and wash or sanitize your hands. Also, the porta potty was serviced last week and has fresh TP.
Social distancing-go for a walk or ride. Our 100 acres is open for you to get fresh air. ❤
