Welcome to our Horse Health Section. This is a new section for our website although we have had some involvement with horse health, rehabilitation and prevention for many years. The focus of this section will include how to keep your horse healthy and athletically capable, how to prevent problems, how to cope with common maladies and new advancements in equine health.

As this section develops we hope the visitor will discover that our approaches involve just about everything that works, from traditional methods to "high tech", with large doses of common sense sprinkled in.

Please note: The concepts and ideas shown here are presented for informational purposes and to help the visitor to this site expand his/her field of knowledge. This information is not intended to be a substitute for any customary contact with a licensed veterinarian. In fact, through this section, we hope to promote more informed dialogue between horse owners and their veterinarians so that preventive health can be improved and in certain emergencies, you all may have a better chance of knowing what to do before the veterinarian arrives and so you can provide your veterinarian with more complete and accurate observations as to what took place before he/she arrives.
