Colic is a common life threatening condition that requires immediate veterinary care. Being proactive in colic prevention requires an understanding of the equine digestive system. A life-sized model of the digestive tract is used in this class. Preventive measures are covered. Students will learn signs of colic and discuss eight different forms of colic. Instruction will be given on using a stethoscope and taking vitals. Participants will learn what information they need to give the vet and how to care for their colicking horse in the critical hours before the vet arrives. What to expect when your vet arrives and after care for your horse will also be covered. Visit www.thehorsesensei.com for more information.
