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.
This scheme is run by the British Horse Society to help vets and owners work together to make the best decisions for individual horses. We hope to help raise awareness of the symptoms and types of colic and helping people to understand what veterinary treatments entail and what to expect.
As part of the scheme the BHS provide us with advice and resources that we can in turn pass on to help you, from pocket guides to colic for owners to telephone triage processes for our team. We have also held a client talk using presentations they have provided us with and hope to hold another one in the near future so watch this space!
