Illinois horse health care is largely dependent on the barn and individual owner’s awareness. Do you know how to identify a brewing hoof abscess, Strangles episode, laminitic event, colic, symptoms of West Nile Virus, rabies or the flu? With most equine health issues, prevention or early detection is critical to recovery. Your veterinarian, farrier or equine health clinician can supply you with information to educate you on symptoms of many diseases or issues.
Do you want to add some Omega-3 source to your Illinois horse health care program? Omega-3 fatty acids are long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), which help provide structure to cell membranes in tissues across the body. Equines cannot produce these and must rely on forage.Choose the best Omega-3 option for your horse by considering the supplement form (liquid, pellet, meal or powder), your goal in providing Omega-3 support, and cost. For help, talk with a nutritionist or your vet.
