Posted by on in Uncategorized

Colic is a scary thing that happens to horses, and the sooner you catch it the better off your horse will be.  Gas colic is when gas builds up anywhere in the horse's gastrointestinal tract.  Causing factors can be stress, inadequate access to roughage, or rich pasture grass, poor parasite management, and other unknown factors.

Having experienced gas colic several times with horses and consulted with several veterinarians and holistic practitioners on the topic, I found the following treatments to be successful in alleviating the horse's pain and allowing the gas to pass.

1. Hook up your horse trailer and take your horse for a ride on a bumpy dirt road.

2. Energy healing - any modality works by focusing on the gas pocket and visualizing its movement out of the system.
