Horsin Around works with Mid-Atlantic Vet Field Team


The Horsin Around Bucks County 4H club met the Mid-Atlantic Vet Field Team and discussed strategies to help improve the health of horses.

This team of vets includes in-clinic specialists that provide advanced imaging and surgery and ambulatory veterinarians that provide primary care to animals at their home location.

Dr Katy Sullivan, Dr. Carolyn Reckelhoff and Dr. Kyle Clark held a talk with Horsin Around members that included topics such as body condition scales (which can help a vet determine if a horse is getting proper feed ration), ACTH baseline tests, equine metabolic syndrome, non-structured carbs, laminitis and many other feed related topics.

The vet did a demonstration on how to take a digital pulse and members were given a presentation from the vets.
