Feeding per body weight for 5 days or lesser amount for ongoing problems. What would be the dossage for a horse that is subject to colic?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

The manufacturers recommend giving 20g per 100kg body weight in feed for 5 days. Lower levels can then be used for longer periods if they are proving to be effective. You would gradually reduce the amount to half and then a quarter of the above. This might be helpful, depending on the underlying reason for the colic. Your worm control should be good of course.

Do I add water to physillium husks

Sam

Just wondering whether I need to add water to physillium husks before feeding? As it swells when wet was concerned given dry might be problematic but assumed it would work better if it swells in the gut??

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

It should be dampened before given to the horse, but does not need to be soaked. It will gradually swell up more after being swallowed, but this is not a problem if you give the correct amount (approximately 20g per 100kg of horse).
