I have a wonderful 16 or 17 year old Cremello quarter horse gelding named Casper. We were on a trail ride today and he was feeling sluggish and lethargic, he was foaming green saliva, and he has diarrhea. BAD. He also is dehydrated and won't drink much. Is it sand colic? We have meds if so.

If he's dehydrated a vet can definitely help him with some fluids. Biggest sign of colic is NO gut sounds. Hope he's doing better this morning

If anything he has too many gut sounds... But at other times he has zero noises from there. I will contact our vet. Thanks guys! If you have any other ideas please do tell!
