The mesocolon containing fat and large vessels can be recognized and traced to the right, where it can be felt passing between the caecum and the abdominal wall (Fig.

Palpation of the overhanging part of the caecal base may be impossible in large horses. The mass of ingesta tends to be oval and can be moved from side to side like a pendulum (Fig. 15). Difficulty in recognizing the relatively empty large colon is another significant feature of caecal impaction. Caecal intussusceptions take one of two forms. Following the initial invagination of the apex, intussusception of the body of the caecum into the base (caecocaecal intussusception) may occur or the invagination process may continue until most of the caecum has passed through the caecocolic opening into the right ventral colon (caecocolic intussusception).

The early diagnosis and referral of these cases significantly improves the prognosis and reduces the occurrence of postoperative complications.
