Now is the time to think about preventive health care, spring vaccines, Coggins tests, dental exams, and fecal floats, to keep your horse healthy. Last year four Ohio-based horses died from Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), a fatal disease that is transmitted by mosquitoes. In addition, horses in Knox County (Central Ohio) succumbed to West Nile virus infection - a disease also transmitted by mosquitoes. So be aware: even if your horse never leaves the farm, mosquitoes can travel great distances and infect your horse.

The equine field service veterinarians listed left to right, Dr. Jonathan Yardley, Dr. Bacha, Dr. Naomi Chiero and Dr. Matt Brokken. In the background is the equine field service truck that they use to make equine farm calls in central Ohio. The trucks are able to carry digital x-rays, upper airways endoscopes, the Lameness locator and a digital ultrasound. All these tools allow them to provide the most comprehensive equine sports medicine in Ohio.

The newsletter also provides important information about preventive medicine, including helpful tips on how often to vaccinate your horse(s).
