Dentistry and Health Check We recommend that all horses have a routine dentistry examination and floating of the teeth performed once a year. If performed by a veterinarian, this visit can also be part of an excellent health check regime in which other health issues in your horse can be identified and managed. Learn more about why we recommend Health Checks and all the inclusions.
All horses with no known vaccination history should be protected with an initial course of two injections, a month apart
A booster should be given a year after the initial course
Thereafter tetanus toxoid vaccines should be used once every 5 years.
Generally not required for most horses in the region BUT
Recommended for horses that travel from the district OR
Horses that participate in local events to which horses from other regions have traveled
Worming Our preferred recommendation is that horses have their feces tested once every 2 months, and worming performed only when required as confirmed by a faecal egg count (FEC).
Where FECs have not been performed, horses should be wormed once every 2 months with product rotation as directed by our worming product chart.
