Video: Sonogram of the ventral abdomen of a foal with enterocolitis. Notice the hyperechoic intramural gas within a loop of thickened small intestine. The gas echoes are imaged extending from the mucosal surface into the submucosa and reach the limit between this and the muscularis. The submucosa is thickened and presents increased echogenicity.
