As your horse transitions to winter, the changing demands placed on his digestive system can lead to serious problems. Decreased water consumption can cause dehydration colic. Changing from fresh grass to hay can lead to impactions. Increased stall confinement can increase the risk for ulcer. In fact, change of any kind can lead to digestive upset. With the “season of changes” underway, Dr. Getty’s November teleseminar takes aim at the causes and prevention of colic.
Date: Thursday, November 17, 2011 - Time: 8:00 pm EST (5 pm PST) - Cost: $15.00 (your long distance charges may apply). You need not be present for the live seminar. The entire event will be recorded for future listening or download by registrants.
“Understanding and Avoiding Colic” will emphasize:
What is colic and what types are there?
Role of diet in avoiding colic
Preventing your horse from "inhaling" hay
How to make changes in the diet
Prevent mycotoxin ingestion
Deworming and colic prevention
Avoiding travel stress
If it happens -- what to do while waiting for the vet to arrive
Any horse can succumb to colic. This teleseminar will help you avoid potential disaster and heartache. Your horse would say that you can’t afford to miss it. He’s right.
