General medicine includes everything from annual physical examinations, routine vaccinations, dental exams, fecal exams, and routine de-worming programs. Talk to your Specifically Equine veterinarian today to help you determine the ideal vaccine and de-worming program for your horse or barn. Nutrition is another crucial aspect of preventative health care and encompasses balancing your horse’s dietary needs for roughage and concentrates. No matter what life stage or activity level, your Specifically Equine veterinarian is happy to refer you to the right feeding program. Managing your horse’s nutrition is critical to all aspects of maintenance, performance, and aides in the prevention of many diseases. Finally remember that your annual to bi-annual dental exams are a very important part of your preventative care plan. A horse’s teeth affect proper chewing, digestion, nutrient absorption, and can even influence performance.
