History: “Samson” Donovan, a 10-year-old Oldenberg gelding, presented on 8/24/12 for intermittent low-grade colic consisting mostly of parking out from discomfort, with no decline in condition or performance as a low-level dressage horse. The owners report that he has also been gassy. Physical examination and rectal exam were within normal limits and results of a sand flotation test are pending. His colic episodes generally self-resolve or resolve with the aid of 5cc of Banamine. He was recently started on the Succeed Digestive Conditioning Program and he is insured.
