Horse Side Vet Guide App
 By Winniefield Park   •   16th Jul 2019   •   451 views   •   0 comments


It wasn’t that long ago that if a horse became sick or injured the owner had pretty limited resources for learning about what was wrong. Either they relied on their own experiences, or they had to consult with a veterinarian. Some had a wall full of books. Imagine pouring over table of contents the indexes to find what you need? Then the internet! But finding the information means searching through hundreds of pages, which may not contain information that is relevant, accurate or easy to understand. And there might not be wifi in the barn. Horse Side Vet Guide® solves that problem by being your vet guide in your back pocket or saddle bag.

Horse Side Vet Guide® was created so that you’d have important information at your fingertips no matter where you are - whether you have cell signal or wifi or not. Much of the content, concerning situations that are most likely to occur, written by an experienced horse owner and equine veterinarian with over 25 years of experience, is stored on your phone. Whether you have questions about colic, foaling issues, illness or injury, the app will provide pertinent information. It even provides you with questions to ask your vet, how to decide whether you have an emergency or not and how to administer first-aid. You’ll also learn what goes into an equine first-aid kit.

Most vets will have had the experience of trying to help a horse whose problems have been misdiagnosed, mistreated or received delayed treatment because of an over-reliance of what the creator has called “Dr. Google”. It was obvious that a source of information that is up-to-date, accurate and accessible was needed. Horse Side Vet Guide® has information at your fingertips whether you are in the stable, riding ring, or out on trail far beyond reach of wifi hotspots and cell towers.

In addition to being a source of information in an emergency, the app will also teach you how to do a Whole Horse Exam - assessing things like TPRs, soundness and other health factors, contributing to your own peace of mind, and gathering information that is useful to your vet if something is amiss. You’ll also be able to keep notes within the app and favorite information you want to keep handy. You’ll find plenty of charts, videos and images that makes the information very clear with access to even more on the website. Of course, nothing replaces the advice of a ‘real’ veterinarian, but Horse Side Vet Guide® should help greatly until the real one arrives.

Equestion is a free download on the Apple App Store and Google Play for Android.
