Recently I was having a chat with a new horse owner, they were so excited about their new addition to the family, and like all new owners they were out buying new equipment for themselves and the horse. During our conversation I asked about their first aid kit, and they responded by saying “yes I have bandaids and aspirin, in the car with me” (not exactly what I was getting at) So this got me thinking, how many other horse owners in the UAE have, or have not invested in a good first aid kit for their horse? How many owners know their horses resting respiration, pulse and temperature? Are they very familiar with how to take their horse’s vital signs?
As an owner you need to be able to help the vet when they come in an emergency, to give them all the pieces of the puzzle. Or just to aid you with your training and pick up when your horse may be coming down with fever/ cold, I have come up with an essential list so pop down to your nearest tack shop or pharmacy and stock up ASAP!
