Colic If you suspect your horse has colic, record all the symptoms it is showing, take the horse's vital signs, then call us immediately . Return to the horse, walk him for about 15 minutes, then release him in a safe area and watch his behavior. A simple colic can quickly turn deadly without prompt attention.
