You surely want to offer the best horse health care guide to achieve an outstanding race performance, or even just to see your beloved horse in its great condition. So, in rendering an excellent health care, here are some of the important reminders that would really help you and your horse.
Deworming and Vaccination
These two are essential in caring for your horse’s health. All horses need vaccination and most of them need regular deworming. However, these should be discussed with your equine veterinarian. Ask this expert what specific vaccines are appropriate for your horse. Other vaccines given routinely include rhinopneumonitis (equine herpes), rabies and eastern and western equine encephalomyelitis. Vaccines are also available for West Nile Virus.
Moreover, worms cause poor coat, weight loss and colic. Approach the veterinarian to have a test, deworming or any recommended options for your horse. One tip to always remember is not putting too many horses on a very small land. Remove wastes regularly and rotate pastures if possible to avoid worms.
Proper Food and Exercise
It is vital to keep your horse’s teeth in good condition. When your horse reaches 5 years of age, they should start an annual dental check-up by a veterinarian for you to know if their teeth need floating. Horse’s tooth quality plays a significant role in deciding whether or not to feed processed grains (e.g. rolled oats, cracked corn).
