What is Normal?

Do you know what a healthy horse's vital signs should be?

Temperature: 37-38°C in the morning, below 38.5°C in the evening. Slightly higher in warm weather or in foals.

Pulse: 36-48 beats per minute.

Capillary refill time: 1-2 seconds, gums pink.

Respiration: 6-8 breaths per minute.

Intestinal Sounds: Gurgles, squeaks and rasps from intestinal area behind rib cage. You can hear them with your ear.

If you are concerned in any way about your horse's health, contact your veterinarian for advice/assistance!

Is your horse protected?....

As horse owners we all want to do what is best for our horses.  If your horse has not been vaccinated against Tetanus, he/she is at risk.  Any wound (even small, seemingly insignificant ones) can be potentially fatal if your horse contracts tetanus.  Check out the website link below for more information about Tetanus and vaccinations against it:

If you have any concerns or to find out more, speak to your equine vet.

INTESTINAL WORMS.....

What's inside your horse?

When was the last time your horse or pony was wormed?  Don't forget that intestinal parasites place a huge burden on you equine's digestive system and overall health.  Horses with large worm burdens often suffer from malnutrition, poor coats, gastric ulcers, colic & even death! 

There are a huge number of different worming products available, from daily food additives, natural remedies, drenches & pastes. If you are not sure about your horse's worm status or you have questions about your worming regime, 

contact your equine veterinarian for advice.  A fresh sample of manure should be checked by your vet (for a minimal fee) and will determine if your current worming regime is working effectively.
