Horse Health

Pain management & treatment advice

Treatments can vary from simple physical therapy to complicated drug regimes.

Working together with your vet will be important in determining the most appropriate treatment plan for your horse. Depending on the diagnosis, action may be required from the vet and / or yourself. Your vet will:

  • Advise on the correct treatment or medication
  • Prescribe the proper dose
  • Describe the benefits of the treatment and make clear any possible risks or side effects
  • Explain how to administer the most appropriate pain relief
  • Explain how to look after your horse during the treatment and any specific stable management requirements

It is important that owners are aware of their obligations under the Animal Welfare Act 2006.
