Caring for Your Pet Horse

Illustration for article titled Caring for Your Pet Horse

You might have heard of the saying, “a horse is a horse,’’ but for an owner, this four-legged creature is way more than just a horse! He is his teammate, healer and a special companion for life. It is a pure bond and love that they share and the owner will probably go to any lengths to provide his pet horse the best of care and nutrition.


Let’s have a look at the ways in which you can care for your pet horse:

  • Water: Your horse needs to be kept properly hydrated at all times. On an average, horses require 6-12 gallons every single day and we must make sure that they get fresh and clean water every time.
  • Dental Care: Get your horse’s teeth checked by a veterinary dentist at least once a year. If not checked then their teeth will become sharp and they might also suffer from different teeth and mouth injuries.
  • Vaccination: This is something that a lot of owners forget or feel that animal vaccinations ain’t that important. Viral respiratory diseases are very common in horses and therefore it is advisable you get them vaccinated at regular intervals.
  • Time with Fellow Horses: Horses are primarily herd animals. They find comfort and warmth in company of other horses. Try and take them to stables where they will freely be able to socialize with members of their tribe.
  • Training Time with Them: Training with your horses on one-on-one basis can be incredibly satisfying. However, you don’t have to train with them all by yourself… you can take help of a professional who will guide you and also suggest you some good Indian Veterinary Products.
