Hi, colic in its strict definition, the term colic means abdominal pain, over the year it has become a broad

term for a variety of conditions that causes the host to exhibit clinical signs of abdominal pain.

Consequently, it’s used to refer to condition of widely varying etiologists and severity. To understand these

etiologists, make a diagnosis and initiate appropriate

colic in horses. In its strict definition,

the term colic means abdominal pain. Over the years, it has become a broad term for a variety of conditions that

cause the horse to exhibit colic and signs of abdominal pain Consequently, it’s used to refer to condition of widely

varying etiologies and severity. To understand this, etiologists make a diagnosis and initiate appropriate

treatment. Veterinarians must first appreciate the clinically relevant aspect of equine GIT anatomy, the

physiological processes involved in a movement of ingesta and the fluid along the IT tract, the extreme

sensitivity of the horse to the deleterious effect of bacterial endotoxin that normally exhibit within the lumen

of the intestine.

GI, the physiologic process involved in movement  of ingesta and the fluid along the GI tract and the

extreme sensitivity of the host to the deleterious  effect of bacterial endotoxin that normally exists

within the lumen of the intestine .GIT Anatomy, hello everybody. The horse is a

monogastric animal with a relatively small stomach  capacity 8 to 10 liter that is located on the left side of the

abdomen beneath the very cage The junction of the distal  esophagus  and the cardiac is functional When we evolve

permitting gas and the fluid to move into the stomach, but not out Consequently condition that in with the normal

movement of gas Abnormal movement of gas and the fluid through the small intestine may result in severe

Dilation and the rupture of the stomach because of its position.

the xiphoid cartilage on ventral midline the seacom is four to

five feet 1 .2 to 1 .5 meter long and can out say 27 to 30 liter of

feed and the fluid under the influence of the secal musculature

the ingesta in the seacom is massaged mixed with the

microorganism is capable of digesting silos and eventually

where he burst through the a seco colac omenin into the right

ventral colon the attachment of the seacom to the dorsal body

wall is wide thus minimizing the likelihood where the seacom

can become displaced or twisted on its own the right ventral

colon is the divided into secalations that help mix and retain

blunt fiber until they are digested it’s located on the ventral

aspect of the abdomen from the flank region to the ribcage the

ventral colon internet toward the left becoming the sternal

flexure and is in the left ventral colon the left ventral colon

which also is large and circulated past corollary to the left flank

area near the pelvic region the diameter of the colon decrease

markedly and the colon fold back on itself this region which is

called the pelvic flexure is the initial portion of the and

circulated left dorsal colon very simply due to the abrupt

decrease in diameter the junction between the left ventral colon pelvic flexure is the most common location of infections the diameter of the dorsal colon is maximally either at its the aromatic flexure or at the right dorsal colon there are no circulation in the hybrid drift or right portion of the dorsal colon the right dorsal colon is closely attached to the right ventral colon by short fold and to the body wall by tough common mesenteric attachment with the veins of the cecum  neither the left ventral nor the left dorsal colon are  attached directly to the body wall allowing this portion of the

volume to become displaced or twisting and just moves from the large right dorsal column into the short transverse column which has the emitter of about 10 centimeter and is fixed firmly to the most dorsal aspect of the abdominal cavity by strong short fibrous mesenteric the transverse colon is located cranially to the cranial mesenteric artery finally then just entered the circulated descending colon which is 10 to 12 feet or 3 to 3 .6 meter long
