Abstract

The small size of the Shetland pany presents problems in diagnosing and treating impaction of the cecum and colon. History and symptoms are similar ta those presented by larger breeds of horses but the difficulty in performing a rectal examination limits the accuracy of diagnosis and effectiveness of therapy. An exploratory laporotomy offers a method by which this disadvantage can be overcome.
