Here is a very good video to teach you how to take your horse’s vital signs and why this is so important to do. This important information could help you save an equine one day. You can be a great help to your vet by knowing and documenting this info ahead of time.
Watch as Dr. Janice Posnikoff, DVM of Southern California shares her knowledge with us.
If you practice recording the vitals, you can quickly learn what is normal for your horse and what is not. Along with the basics this video shows, Dr. Posnikoff checks for warmth in the hoof to alert you to any issue in the lower leg. This should also be part of your natural hoof care practices.
