Did you know here at Ridings Equine Vets we have joined the REACT colic champions scheme? Recent research has shown more than 90% horse owners did not feel confident spotting the early signs of colic and as 1 in 3 veterinary emergency call outs are due to colic it is something we could all do to learn more about.
The team at Ridings Equine Vets have rescued two young colts found abandoned on farm land near the practice. The colts are estimated to be between 6 – 9 months old and had found their way on to some grazing land after being left in a farmers field. Unfortunately their companion, a third colt had already died when the team rescued them.
Around 40-60% of our client’s horses are affected by Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) and keeping those horses healthy and working happily can be a challenge.
