Emergencies & 1st Aid
Accidents Happens. If you own a horse, you know all too well how that things can go wrong, and you don't even know how or why it happened. The best thing you can do as a horse owner is to be knowledgeable in emergency care, know what to look for, how to treat problems, and of course, have your vet's number on speed dial! Listed below are some helpful resources for health and emergency care, as well as information from our past Equine Open House on this subject. Hopefully, you will never have to use your emergency info, but it's better to be safe than sorry!
