Information from Our Horse Experts
Animal experts at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center share their knowledge about horses.
Why is it important for horses to have relatively clean coats prior to being examined by a veterinarian?
If horses have large amounts of mud on them, for example, this might hide conditions such as skin issues or swollen limbs from your veterinarian. Also, if vaccinations or other injections are to be given that day, starting with a clean coat will save time and reduce the chance for infection at the injection site.
