Horse Health & Well-being

About

Outside of veterinary care there are other specialist horse health and well-being fields. Trainers require their horses to perform at an optimum level at all times so ensure they are afforded every bit of care possible to have them feeling their best.

Professional specialist dental care is required as part of regular horse maintenance. This care requires a high level of skill and knowledge in a variety of dental aspects. The way in which a horses teeth are cared for has a direct impact on the way they race and work with a bridle on.

To become an Equine Dentist you will need to complete a Certificate in Equine Dentistry.

Equine Acupuncture & Massage

Following in the footsteps of highly successful Eastern Medicine treatments on human athletes such as acupuncture and massage, it is now common practice for trainers to utilise the same methods on their equine athletes.

Acupuncture involves inserting needles into the skin to treat pain and relieve pressure, whereas a masseuse manipulates the area of pain or tightness.
