The Colic Risk Rater is a series of questions that will assess your horse’s risk of colic. There are a total of 31 questions in 10 sections and will take you approximately 10 minutes to complete!

  1. Turnout
2. Activity Level
3. Caregivers
4. Feeding
5. Water
6. Dental History
7. Parasite Management
8. Colic History
9. Other/Horse-Specific Factors
10. Change Assessment

The Colic Risk Rater provides a 'snapshot' in time of your horse’s risk of colic based on your current scenario. Risk factors may be constantly changing and your colic risk will change accordingly.

As part of Equine Guelph’s ongoing effort to understand current management practices of horse owners, Equine Guelph is collecting data (responses only; no personal information) from the colic risk rater. At the end, you will have the option to submit your answers by clicking on the “submit” button. If you do not wish to have your answers collected, please disregard the “submit” button.

Please note: This information provides guidelines only and should never replace information from your veterinarian.
