How to Manage Equine Colic

Many cases of colic are directly linked to the diet and may be preventable with turnout, proper diet and adequate water consumption. Here are some simple tips to support digestive health:

Forage First:

Allow horses consistent access to a high forage diet of hay or pasture.

Frequency:

For horses that need additional calories from grain, feed smaller, more frequent meals.

Gradual Changes:

Make all feeding changes gradually.

Add a Wellness Formula:

All three of Platinum’s wellness formulas were designed to be fed solely with a good quality hay, there’s no need to feed anything else with it and your horse will be getting everything for comprehensive health.
