If you’re new to horse ownership then you may not know that your horse will require routine veterinary care. Contact your local equine vet to set up a first time visit and establish a medical record for your horse. Your horse will most likely have come with some sort of veterinary certification stating vaccinations and a history of ailments or illnesses. You should have your equine vet do a thorough checkup on your horse before purchasing or adopting. If that did not occur, have your vet check your horse after. Depending on where you live your horse will need a core set of spring and fall shots, which your vet can give. Teeth filings are also required for horses every six to twelve months. Horses tend to require more vet care than cats and dogs due to their size and tendency to develop illnesses such as colic, ulcers, etc. Talk with your vet Mattoon, IL to learn more.
