Colitis in adult horses can be divided into two main types: infectious and non-infectious.
Infectious causes include:
If your horse has diarrhea or even manure that’s more “cow plop” in consistency, like the manure pictured here, it's a smart idea to touch base with your vet about what you're seeing.
In severe cases, laminitis can lead to separation of the lamina from the hoof wall, visible in this x-ray as a rotated coffin bone.
Barn supplies like pitchforks shouldn't be shared between the horse suspected of colitis and the other horses in the barn
Allow horses recovering from a serious bout of colitis plenty of downtime to regain their weight and fitness.
