Since 2007, our Staff Veterinarian, Dr. Lydia Gray has been answering your horse health questions in our Ask the Vet blog. She’s tackled all sorts of horse health topics ranging from colic in horses to joint health to eye injuries to any other questions you’ve had related to keeping your horse happy and healthy.
So, we here at SmartPak are creating a brand new Ask the Vet video series, and we want YOU to be part of it! Every month, we’ll choose a topic of the month and post it on social media and here on our blog.
Our first topic for the new video series is going to be WINTER HORSE CARE. You can ask your questions by using #askthevetvideo on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, or by commenting on the blog or the video on YouTube. You’ll only have two weeks to submit your question, so get them in early, as we’ll cut off question submission for the first topic on January 11, 2016!
At the end of the two weeks, we’ll select some to be voted on by you, our loyal readers, subscribers, fans, and followers. The top 5 vote-getters will then be answered in our monthly Ask the Vet videos featuring Dr. Gray and SmartPaker Sarah (of “If horses were people” and “Stuff Riders Say” fame!). If your question is selected and answered, you win a $10 SmartPak Gift Card!
We know there are lots of questions out there, so here are a couple ways to make yours stand out. Keep in mind, these are not steadfast rules – they’re merely suggestions and recommendations:
– Keep it short – two sentences is a good length to state the problem and the question
– Stay on topic! Questions about joint health during the month when the topic is Winter Horse Care won’t be picked
Subscribing or following SmartPak on social media is a good way to know when the videos are posted or the new topic is announced, so make sure to keep checking the blog and social media for all the announcements regarding the new video series.
And if you have a question in the meantime, be sure to check out our Horse Health Library to see if there are any answers to your horse health questions there.
Good luck, happy asking, and have a great ride!
