CEVS is pleased to provide this valuable information. Horse owners will find helpful Barn Posters, Charts, Check Lists, Newsletters and Hand Outs.

Signs Your Horse May Need Help
- Not drinking water.
- Signs of distress, anxiety or discomfort.
- Lethargy, depression or a horse that’s “off-feed.”
- Absence of gut sounds.
- Signs of oncoming lameness: head-bobbing, reluctance to move, odd stance, pain, unwillingness to rise.
- Bleeding, swelling, evidence of pain.
- Seizures, paralysis, or “tying up” (form of muscle cramps that ranges in severity from mild stiffness to life-threatening illness).
The horse’s natural behavior makes it accident-prone. Our advice is to be prepared.
