Colic

In addition to a detailed examination and evaluation of all results, we also provide targeted treatment. This could consist of infusion or pain therapy, emptying the stomach with nasogastric tubing or surgery, for example.

We are also able to offer the following for colic patients:

  • Medical history
  • General examinations
  • Rectal examinations
  • Nasogastric tubing
  • Blood tests
  • Abdominal ultrasounds
  • Removal/examination via paracentesis
  • Gastroscopy     

Depending on our findings, we may recommend conservative as well as surgical therapy here at Hanse Equine Hospital. We provide video-monitored stalls for intensive-care patients that allow us to provide constant care.

Regular check-ups are paramount for properly assessing colic as a dynamic process, and for ensuring full recovery.
