  • Step by Step instructions for humans for Optimize Your Health & Wellbeing

  • You would think they would have given the poor lady an enema instead of digging.

  • The nurse would have to dig up inside the rectum???  OUCH.  Did they find out why she was that constipated?  Diet? 

  • Yeah, ewwwww.  When I worked in healthcare many years ago, we had one geriatric patient who was so constipated that she would throw up what looked like coffee grounds.  The nurse would have to put on her glove and go digging.  The poor patient felt horrible and she was a small person, but her belly was so swollen.  Yay for the stablemate who helped wouldn't let her die.

  • Also, a horse that does not drink enough water, that can also cause constipation.  Enteroliths can too. Also ingestion of sand can do it too.  And some would require enemas depending on the severity of the impaction (vets usually do a rectal exam reaching as far as they can down the intestine and can actually find the impaction and manually pull it out if they can reach it ewwww).  

  • People are too quick (give up to easily) to put a horse down especially if they are in pain.  The stablemate has more common sense than the humans did.  When a horse has colic, even if it's an impaction, the horse suffering must be kept walking to encourage movement of the gas or impaction.  The horse cannot be allowed to roll, because it could create a twist in the intestine which would require surgery to save the life of the horse (that's expensive).  The easiest way I have found out to remedy gas and or impaction colic due to dry turds is good ole magnesium in the form of milk of magnesia.  Some horses get deficient on magnesium which can cause constipation which leads to impactions.

  • Animals have an innate sense of healing.
