According to the American Association of Equine Practitioners, 700,000 horses will colic this year in the U.S. alone.
Equine colic is an unfortunately common condition that affects horses of all ages, breeds, and disciplines. This condition refers to any sort of abdominal pain in horses, and while in some cases it may be so mild that you don't even notice, a severe case could be deadly. In fact, it's one of the leading causes of equine death, after old age. With statistics like that, you don't want to feel in the dark about colic. That's why we're sharing our colic knowledge with you and horse owners across the country in this resource center!
