Hawaii may be many miles from the mainland, yet horse health care and preventative measures are the same. If you sign up for Hawaii Department of Agriculture alerts you will be notified of equine health updates and viral outbreaks. Contact your local veterinarian for a list of recommended vaccinations.
In Hawaii, horse health care may require the use of a grazing muzzle. Do you have an ‘easy keeper’ or overweight horse? A grazing muzzle can reduce grass intake by 30% or more. Your horse may consume their entire daily requirements in just 3 hours on healthy pasture and the rest is excess calories.
