Equine Emergency First Aid


Determining whether a certain situation is an emergency or can wait is a fundamental part of having horses. Dr. Marteniuk will briefly discuss common equine emergencies and what an owner can do to both assess and manage the situation until their veterinarian arrives. The essential components of an emergency kit will also be reviewed.
