Emergencies with your horse can be stressful and frightening. Emergencies seem to happen at the worst times, late at night or when you're alone. Norton Veterinary Consulting and Education Resources (NVCER) has developed an online course to prepare you for the unexpected so you can respond with confidence to the many emergencies that arise with horse ownership and horse care giving.
"This course includes so much information that I wish I had known as a horse owner before I became a veterinarian," shared Dr. Joan Norton. "As a lifelong horse enthusiast I've made it my mission to help educate horse owners. The best way I can do that is to help them be prepared for what can happen."
The Equine Emergency First Aid course covers the most common equine emergencies to prepare you to manage each situation before your veterinarian arrives.
Topics covered include:
- Painful Eye
- Respiratory Issues
- Reproduction Issues
- Vital Signs
Take advantage of the opportunity to provide the best for your horses and be ready for when they need you most. Click here for more about this valuable course and the entire series of NVCER courses:
