I have been invited to a conference at Nottingham University sponsored by WHW in a couple of weeks that is discussing owners ability to recognise colic and what they do eg a call vet immediately or watch, walk or not walk, experiences of treatments and outcomes. I would be grateful if lots of you could give me additional input to my experiences. Message me if you prefer to keep it private or add on this thread. The aim of the conference is to produce guidelines like those for recognising say meningitis. I think the results of this would be invaluable for novice owners and non horsey yard owners.
