It a mini asnd she is pregnant and colicing

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. We need to be extra careful with pregnancies, so we'll need to connect you with the Veterinarian ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the horse?

If shes very colicky she probably has a displaced or twisted large intestine. You need to call a veterinarian immediately, hopefully one that is capable of doing colic surgery. Unfortunately it maybe to late. If the intestine is twisted the tissue dies rapidly. After you have her taken care of please remember to rate me. 5 stars would be greatly appreciated.
