Don’t Delay, Have Your Say about Your Horse’s Health!

image of a caring horse ownerGuelph, Ontario – Equine Guelph is calling on horse owners to complete a survey which will help assess the effectiveness of the first year of HEALTHflash, a pilot program consisting of four free seasonal health reminders to help busy horse owners keep on top of changes affecting their horses during the year. The program also provides special alerts in case of disease outbreaks and comes complete with interactive games to test your seasonal savvy.

Your input will help shape the program by allowing Equine Guelph to learn more about horse owners’ current healthcare management practices. This will determine the information Equine Guelph will include in HEALTHflash to help horse caregivers give the best possible care to their horses. The survey has three sections and 30 questions; it takes approximately 10–15 minutes to complete.

All survey participants are entered into a draw to WIN one of two gift certificates for an Equine Guelph online two-week eWorkshop! (Learn more about Equine Guelph’s eWorkshop offerings — Colic Prevention, Biosecurity and Horse Behaviour & Safety at:
