Dr. Dan: Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Horse colic two times in 6 months. I have been feeding oats, Just Add Oats, Red Cal, your oil. I water down alfafa hay cubes and very small amount of shredded hay. He was use to eating free choice hay. Now he is eating his manure. I called the vet. Her suggestion was he is bored. (and use a mineral block!) In the stall and paddock is no manure left to even scoop. I have limited access to grass.
This is a rocky mountain horse. Thank you for your advice. Eileen
Definitely not a mineral block/salt block in any way shape or form. I would go back to regular hay for sure too. Be careful with dewormers/vaccines meds etc. too.
For now I would add the Gut Check at least until it gets back to normal. may need this forever and certainly wouldn’t hurt! except for the hay I can’t imagine the diet really being related though. Perhaps more info might help??
