Early recognition of a colic is very important to the successful outcome. Owner's observations can be very helpful since they know the habits and temperament of their horses. Facial expressions by the horse can be very helpful in determining the pain levels. Ninety percent of colics will respond to on farm treatments so a thorough exam is essential to determining whether to refer to a referral clinic or not. Overdose of DSS can be fatal and should be used with caution.
