COLIC. 891 Symptoms.—The animal is suddenly seized with pain in the bowels, becoming- i-estless and uneasy, crouching, sometimes strik- ing up towards the belly with the hind foot, looking round to his flanks, evincing great distress; he gets down after several appar- ent efforts, rolls about, sometimes on his back, sometimes quite over.* (These symptoms I try to illustrate by Figs. 780 and 781, which of course ai-e ideal, but will serve to give a good idea of the main symptoms.
