BEVA publishes horse health guidance videos to help owners during COVID-19 lockdown

The British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) has produced a series of healthcare guidance videos for horse owners during the COVID-19 lockdown. Aimed at helping horse owners to obtain the key information they may need to convey to their vet during a telephone consultation, the advice includes what information an owner should provide, how to check vital signs and how to spot early warning signs.

“We need to do our utmost for equine health and welfare while protecting veterinary practitioners, horse owners and handlers,” said David Mountford, Chief Executive of BEVA. “Lockdown restrictions mean that horse owners will have telephone- based consultations with their vet to help minimise face to face contact.

“These short, informative videos, made by equine vets, should help owners be able to answer some of the questions their vet may ask over the phone and enable the horse to be triaged promptly and efficiently during this challenging time.”

The videos cover:

  • How to help your vet triage your case
  • How to take a horse’s pulse
  • How to take a horse’s temperature
  • Checking your horse’s gums
  • How to measure breathing rate
  • Laminitis
  • Wounds and lameness
  • Eyes and breathing problems
  • Colic
