Choosing Horse Medication

Choosing horse medication should be a well thought process that includes a serious discussion with your trusted veterinarian. Veterinarians, like physicians, have a responsibility to both you (the client) and your horse (the patient). Before dispensing any medication, a veterinarian will want to perform a thorough examination of your horse to ensure that the animal is receiving the best possible treatment.

In choosing horse medication, there may even be some instances where alternative methods of treatment are recommended. These alternative methods should not be dismissed without careful consideration, as some of them have proven to be quite effective in the treatment of horses for various conditions. Among the alternative treatments being used today are acupuncture, massage, acupressure, and herbology. Though mostly thought of as alternative treatment methods for humans, these treatments have, in recent years, gained in popularity among horse owners. Acupuncture, in particular, has been surprisingly effective in treating horses for a variety of ailments including brain abscess, cancer, colic, and pregnancy disorders. It is important to mention that acupuncture has been a standard treatment for horses in China for centuries, though it is a relatively new treatment option in the West.
