Horse Veterinary Questions? Ask an Equine Vet.
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
It sounds like your guy is suffering from colic. This may be due to an obstruction or a digestive disturbance such as a worm load or having ingested something odd. DO NOT allow him to roll or lie down....walk him around slowly which will help his digestive tract to start moving and if you have any Butazolidin or Banamine on hand, give that in the dose according to his weight every 12 hrs. After walking, he can lie down but any rolling could turn fatal so be sure ot get him up if he rolls.
If this continues even after treatment, call your vet on emergency since any obstruction can be fatal if left untreated.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
