Hepatic and digestive system

  • Colic

    The term colic describes the clinical signs that horses show when they have abdominal pain : they look at their flanks, sweat a lot, lie down, roll on their back or stretches out as if to urinate (which is why there is often confusion about the origin of the problem).  Some older horses and certain breeds might more stoic than others.

  • Hepatic function

    The liver is a large organ (approximatively 10 kg in a 500 kg horse) with multiple biological functions, essential to proper operation of the body.
