Re: [RC] Vaccines - Kari Hanes

Having the vet out once a year for check ups is very important to us. And now that we have an experienced endurance vet practicing in our area we are thrilled! She goes over each horse critically and gives us a wellness work sheet on each one for me to put in my farm book. Does all the vacs, coggins, and west niles. We used to do all our own shots years ago but when it came to an emergency situation the vet hesitated because they did not have a complete history of the horse. To us it's worth the cost to have that history and get the right care.

Last year my daughters horse had some leg problems and the "other" vet pulled in and started to look at him, one of the first things she said was - I don't much about arabs. My heart sunk! After almost $400 and a couple visits later we gave up on her. We hauled 2 hours to a vet that also races standardbreds. A $35 visit solved the problem the other vet couldn't figure out.

When you find a good vet support them as much as possible. Their hearts are in their work, and it shows!
