Colic is a word describing the symptoms seen when a horse has abdominal pain. These symptoms usually start as very mild signs (looking at its flank, pawing the ground, slightly off feed) and, depending on the cause, can progress to very violent signs (rolling from side to side, sweating, groaning).

Horses that suffer choke are often prone to doing so again. They choke most frequently on greedily eaten dry foods (hay, grain), although it may be a complication of a narrowing of the oesophagus (the tube connecting the mouth with the stomach). Signs seen include the horse being anxious, arching its neck, and retching.
