Re: Colic Surgery- Please Help Onyx

Elizabeth Kuzma

The hospital took him off his timothy hay since he was having trouble passing it through the resection area.  They said it would be a trial and error sort of experience of what he could tolerate.  They are restarting him only on my Triple Crown timothy balnced cubes, beet pulp (rinsed, soaked, rinsed), and Stabul 1 to see how he handles only that.  However, I have no idea on how much of it all to feed.  Would this combination also be fed at a 2% of body weight, all weighed dry??

I also would assume that just feeding the Ontario cubes will get very expensive quickly and boring to him.  I was trying to see if anyone had any sort of experience in chopping their own hay to make it easier for digestion and more convincing to eat for the horse.
