Re: Gas colics

Lavinia,
Dorsal displacement colics are often caused because of gas buildup. So technically, they are usually a gas colic that progresses to displacement. I believe that is what was meant by gas colic/dorsal displacement.  Juniper had to have surgery to correct a nephrosplenic ligament entrapment ( a displacement) caused by gas buildup from grazing on fresh clover.  The following explains this issue and it's treatment well.Gas colics and Displacements – Large Animal Surgery – Supplemental Notes (umn.edu)
