CALL YOUR VET­ERI­NAR­IAN IF

EQUUS - - Eq Handson -

• Your horse comes to an abrupt halt with mas­sive mus­cle cramp­ing, usu­ally over the hindquar­ters. Or if he stiff­ens up and moves for­ward only re­luc­tantly, per­haps tak­ing only short strides and stab­bing his hind toes into the ground.

• He sweats pro­fusely, with less sweat over the af­fected mus­cles.

• He has a pained, “col­icky” look, with rapid breath­ing and a fast heart rate.

• He de­vel­ops mus­cle tremors.

• His urine is dis­col­ored ---from a red­dish tinge to a dark, cof­fee-like hue.
