June Educational Series
Equine Emergency Care
If you’ve been around horses long enough, you’ve likely experienced your fair share of equine emergencies. Those emergencies can range from dealing with a minor cut or scrape on your own, to a catastrophic injury requiring emergency veterinary care. Regardless of the incident, equine emergencies are frightening, not only for the owner, but also for the horse. For this reason it pays to have a good understanding of basic first aid care that you can provide to your equine companion as well as a comprehensive first aid kit so that you have the supplies that you need to provide that first aid.
Equine emergencies can encompass many things – one of those might be that your horse escapes, is stolen, or that you have to evacuate with your horse because of a natural or human-made disaster. While you may know what your horse looks like, positive and permanent identification is the best way to make sure you reclaim your beloved equine. Knowing what those are and what you can do will help take some of the stress out of an already stressful situation.
This month's series is packed full of information helping you learn more about horse behavior in an emergency, establishing your horse’s normal, recognizing signs and symptoms of distress, equine first aid, when to call the vet and different ways to positively identify your horse. Also learn what to do when you horse colics and all about senior horses!
In addition, gain hands-on experience and stay-and-play with us! We will have horses available for you to practice your newly learned bandaging and first aid skills on!
