Quick Tip: Mare & Foal

An active broodmare needs more frequent vaccination against certain diseases such as EHV-1 and other diseases that threaten pregnancy and/or the foal (e.g., rotavirus, botulism).

Quick Tip: Young

Young horses are highly susceptible to most internal parasites so be sure to conduct timely fecal egg counts in case your horse requires a change in deworming regimen.

Quick Tip: Performance

Don’t buy a performance horse without having a comprehensive pre-purchase exam done.

Quick Tip: Pleasure

When having your horse vaccinated, be sure to have a physical examination, as well, which includes a dental exam, body condition scoring, general fitness exam, ophthalmic exam and soundness exam.

Quick Tip: Senior

Signs of Cushing’s and Equine Metabolic Syndrome can include unexplained bouts of laminitis, changes in haircoat, increased drinking and urination, excessive sweating, as well as many other physical changes.
