Two very important things you can do to monitor horse health are to become familiar with how to check the horse’s vital signs and to observe the physical condition of the horse on a regular basis. Checking the horse regularly and knowing what is “normal” for a particular horse can help us find out if that horse is healthy or sick. This allows us to catch a problem, such as an illness or injury early and to contact the veterinarian to assure the best treatment possible. For information on how to take vital signs, including temperature, pulse, respiration, and capillary refill time, and to learn more about performing a physical examination of the horse, click on the link below.
