Welcome to the Ask the Vet Blog

Welcome to the Ask the Vet Blog.  This is a space where all of us horse addicts can get together to discuss some serious topics related to horse health.  I will be posting two to three answers a week to the questions you have about your horse’s health related issues.  Keep in mind these are only my opinions and they are for informational purposes only.  Please consult your veterinarian before treating your horse or pony for any ailment. 

In addition to answering questions from you I will be sharing some of the many articles that I have written.  Also, I will try to keep you up to date on the latest developments in the world of equine health and nutrition. 

I encourage you to participate and add comments to any of the posts.  (To prevent SPAM – you will need to become a member of this site to post comments.  Membership is free and easy.)  We are all here to learn from each other about our horses and how to keep them healthy.  Please note:  Neither I or SmartPak are responsible for reader comments or suggestions, please take them as opinions of the writer and not of the creators of this blog.
