Setting the standard for the year, last week's (12th April 2017) veterinary seminar was a relaxed, enjoyable and incredibly informative evening for all!
Head of Sanctuary and Care, and Redwings’ Veterinary Surgeon Nicky Jarvis recommended a proactive approach when it came to laminitis. She broke through the science – with the aid of Velcro and X-rays – to clearly explain why laminitis occurs, as well as suggesting practical prevention measures aimed at the horse owner. To brush up on your knowledge read our laminitis advice here.
Education and Campaigns Manager Andie Vilela highlighted the challenges we face in weight management; factors such as over-rugging, overestimating exercise levels and an overwhelming choice of feeds all make accurate feeding difficult.
The goal for every horse owner no matter workload or management is to achieve an ideal weight year round. Your horse will tell you if grazing needs to be restricted and exercise upped if you get into the habit of fortnightly assessing fat cover on your horse.
