Equine Health:

There have been a variety of articles written on many different aspects of horsecare. Some of them don't pertain to our particular geographical area. In some parts of the world horseowners must protect their horses against corn mold, blister beetles, extreme heat (although the opposite is a sure bet here!) and other problems they encounter. It is helpful to know about these if travel is on your agenda, or even for conversing with horseowners through the Internet.

If you are a horseowner, chances are your horse plays a very special part in your life. Before panicking about something you've read and especially before pursuing treatment of your horse, it is very wise to consult with your veterinarian. However, it's always nice to have a bit of background information on your horse's affliction, so you can discuss things from an informed point of view.

Not all articles are written with the amateur owner in mind. For this reason we will categorize the articles we post or link to. Off-site links are marked; when you take these links, a new window will pop open with the article from another site. Just close the window to return to enjoy browsing at Alberta Equine ...On-Line.
