Missouri’s horse owners want their equines to have expert horse health care. In addition to vaccination for local diseases, nutrition is an important topic. Proper nutrition will affect the horse's hoof and general health. Are your equine’s supplements, grain, hay correct for their needs? What about those extra top dressings like flaxseed, herbs, coat conditioners, yeast, etc? Contact your large animal vet, farrier or holistic equine clinician for guidance on how to know what and how much to give.
In Missouri you may have a sport horse with a physically demanding career. As part of horse health care, ask your veterinarian about stem cell therapy. Stem cell therapy is most commonly used to treat tendon and ligament injuries. It can also be used for other injuries such as managing neck or back pain/injuries, after arthroscopic surgery and fracture repair, generalized “poor performance”; and to maintain the horse’s current level of performance.
