About this course
Horses are an amazing – and sometimes frustrating – combination of strength and fragility. Sometimes, as horse owners, it feels as if they're constantly challenging Murphy's Law – what can go wrong, will! I'm sure I'm not the only one who has considered developing a horse-sized bubblewrap suit!
Emergencies are inevitable. This course is not about telling you when to call the vet; instead, it's designed to prepare you for making the call, and what you might expect from an emergency vet visit so that you will be better able to help both your veterinarian, and your equine friend.
We will consider some common equine emergencies, including eye injuries, lacerations, acute lameness, and colic, as well as addressing some of the tough decisions for which all horse owners need to be prepared.
