The world can be a stressful place. Most horses lead happy lives, but modern life can be noisy and confusing.
Loud noises such as thunderstorms, fireworks or game shooting are a common cause of fear or anxiety.
Changes in stabling or grazing areas, or even changes in the other animals around them can cause stress in your horse
Travelling can be stressful to horses
Horses on box rest can become stressed. Or when being turned out for the first time after a period of rest, horses may need to be kept calm
Many horses show undesirable behaviours when ridden which may be constant, intermittent, or just at times when they are in unfamiliar surroundings
At VetPlus we believe vets are best placed to advise on the best course of action for your pet.
Because of the way people have bred horses, behavioural problems and anxiety are very common. They may appear mild, but they can become very distressing or even dangerous as well as causing chronic health problems if they are not managed appropriately. Your vet is the best person to advise you on what is right for your horse.
Contact the vet you purchased Calmex Equine from for guidance on the use of Calmex Equine for your horse. They’ll be able to provide specialised advice for your pet due to the records they keep. If you are unable to get the information you need from your vet, or if you bought Calmex Equine elsewhere, please contact us for assistance.
