Heal Your Horse Yourself?

We can't control when our animals get sick but we can control how we handle the situation. Generally, a horse owner will have a regular veterinarian that tends to their horse but calling a veterinarian isn't always convenient—or affordable. Horses can suffer from a variety of illnesses and diseases that are actually easily remedied or even prevented.

There are great horse care books available that walk you through the process of administering remedies and medications. In addition, they can get you up to speed on cutting-edge remedies that you may not have known about. Best of all, they can help you decide when you should call your veterinarian and when you can handle the problem yourself.

In addition to books, there are also books available that can help you identify the different ailments and illnesses that affect your (much like a “Physician's Reference”). Just because you can identify an illness, however, does not mean that you don't have to call the vet. If a condition appears serious, it probably is—don't wait until it is too late.
