Hello Everyone,

As I type this I can view Miss Joe, a 30yo QH mare, from my desk. She seems to be a bit more comfortable, but we are keeping a close watch on her. She is having a bout w/ gas colic. Dr. Hadland tubed her with oil, water and electrolytes. I have attached video of the procedure and his assessment. He states that putting something in their stomachs eg., fluids, generally will get the gas to pass. He did do a rectal exam and found no compaction or blockage of any sort, but did note a great deal of gas. Nothing has changed in her diet, so we now wait and watch. She has passed some gas. He gave her a shot of banamine.

Thank you for your support
