Colic Risk Rater

Colic is the #1 killer of horses (other than old age)!

Colic is defined as any abdominal pain. Colic is prevalent in horses given digestive tracts measuring 85 feet in length, paired with the fact that they are unable to throw up. Further, horses have evolved over eons as continuous grazers, but in recent history, humankind has taken horses out of their natural environment and applied the stresses of modern day management.

Use this tool to learn more about colic risk factors and ways to reduce the risk to your horse.
