So, after a very stressful couple of weeks, my lovely mare came home from hospital last week after colic surgery. She had a displaced colon (right dorsal displacement) and a large impaction. The vet wasn?t sure whether impaction caused displacement or vice-versa. She is making a good recovery and on 6 more weeks' box rest before having a month in a small paddock and hopefully back to normal (everything crossed!). I?m desperate to do whatever I can within my control to keep her healthy and colic-free in future. It feels a bit like the vets have done their bit in terms of clinical care and the rest is down to me which is scary! The vets, whilst amazing clinically, haven?t been hugely forthcoming in terms of advice on future management ? what I?m doing at the moment is giving her really sloppy feeds and ad-lib soaked hay. In addition to her usual supplements (turmeric, micronized linseed, brewers yeast, vit + min supplement) she?s now having a probiotic and as soon as the medication is finished she?ll be given activated charcoal too. I just wondered if anyone, having been through a similar situation, had any advice or suggestions?
