Vet day for Cookie and Joey

Today, July 12th, 2017,  Cookie and Joey received exams and dental check at Unionville Equine vet clinic.

COOKIE has been what is often termed a “hard keeper”.  She gets a large amount of food, free-choice hay, and 24/7 turnout, but it’s not easy keeping weight on her.   The vet reviewed the nutrition, took a fecal sample for parasite testing, and drew blood for a few blood tests.  When the results come back, we will have more information and be better prepared to help her.

JOEY has been in good health, but we wanted an opinion on his stifle joint.  Sometimes it locks, making it difficult for him to lift his left when backing up.  His history prior to arrival at Equihab is a mystery, and the vet felt x-rays might show if there was an old injury.

The x-rays showed everything was normal.  He got a routine dental check but didn’t need his teeth floated this time.  He will be turned out in a bit bigger pasture now, and that may help his stifle joint.  Movement builds muscle and muscling around the joint helps to prevent it from locking.

MIKEY: time for routine vet visit & shots

Mikey visited the vet today for routine care.   He had his teeth checked & floated.  Blood was drawn for the Coggins test.  And he received vaccinations.  He behaved well for everything: catching, leading, loading, unloading, standing for vet, injections, and the ride back.

Mikey is available for adoption.
