HOW A HORSE’S HEART RATE CAN HELP US TREATING A COLIC?

Horse heart rate normally lies between 32 and 36 beats per minute. But some horses can also have a slightly lower (24 beats per minute) or slightly higher (40 beats per minute) heart rate.


In general, horse’s vital signs should be regularly monitored in order to keep track of it’s average vital signs values and possible deviations. Monitoring a horse’s heart rate over a longer period of time allows you to look for signs of pain, discomfort, heart problems and some other diseases.


Horse Arrhythmias can be difficult to find, but the new veterinary technology of the Piavet System can give you long-term monitoring images to help reveal existing problematic arrhythmias.

 

GET VITAL SIGNS MEASUREMENT IN 2 MINUTES


When a horse’s heart rate is up over 60 in colic horses, this is a clear sign of severe (abdominal) pain due to decreased venous return.

 

With help of the Piavet Platform you can visualise the heart without physically being with the patient, capture the data, share with specialists, and take notes. Heart rate is one of the most important indicators for pain in horse colic.

 

When treating a horse with colic, normalisation of the heart rate is a tell-tale sign of the treatment working. The Piavet System allows you to continuously monitor a colic horse for signs of pain and discomfort and the effects of pain therapy wearing off, even after a few hours.

 

Also, looking at how quickly a horse’s heart rate goes back to normal after exercise for example, is a good indication of fitness.

The first thing I do when I see my patients is put on the device to get a first look of how the horse is doing. It’s fun how easy and fast it responds!
