Are You Ready For Spring?
The snow may be falling along with the mercury, but savvy horse owners know that now is the time to get ready for springespecially if they have an expectant mare.
Foaling demands special skills of most horse owners. Though veterinarians are often not, proper precautions should include adequate medical supplies, and your vet's cell phone number!
In the area of supplies, the proven product is the VSI Foal Kit, one of the unique first aid and emergency kits produced by Pet Care Products. Developed with assistance from the Center for Business and Technical Development at Central Missouri State University, Foal Kit" was created with extensive input from horse owners and veterinarians. The most important aspect of Foal Kit" may be the peace of mind it provides horsemen and women who know how important it is to be prepared during this often-hectic time.
The carefully selected Vet Kit" contents come double-sealed so that horse owners know they have what they need when an accident strikes. Also included is a complete direction card that assists with emergency treatment of the most common horse injuries and helps the owner gather the right information to give their veterinarian.
Vocational Services is a not-for-profit corporation based in Liberty, Mo. The 34-year-old organization provides employment and other opportunities for people with disabilities. Several staff members are long-time horse lovers and they developed the original Vet Kit" concept from their own experience. This original product also provides expanded job opportunities for VSIs workers competing in an increasingly global economy.
