How to Nourish Your Underweight Horse Back to Optimum Health?

When it comes to racehorses for sport or travel, they sometimes suffer from low body conditions, and it is here that their caretakers need to pay special attention to them. These caretakers need to face some challenges when it comes to setting the feeding patterns of horses that have a low body condition.

Examine the racehorse for medical and physical health issues

When it comes to feeding a horse with a low body condition, it should be examined first by a veterinarian who is qualified and has experience in horse care. This medical examination will identify immediate concerns that help in refeeding a horse.

Experts also say that in addition to a medical examination, it is imperative for you to ensure that you address the health concerns of horses externally. They could be the appearance of wounds and blemishes that should be treated accordingly. The horse should be strong enough to heal these wounds that it suffers. When it comes to refeeding patterns, healthcare experts should formulate a diet chart for horses so that this schedule can be efficiently used as a guide for their satisfactory recovery especially if they need to perform in professional racing tournaments like TVG Horse Races, etc.

Keep a close watch on the feeding and the eating habits of the horse

When it comes to feeding the horse, it is essential for them to ensure it is firmly monitored on the first day or two. The caretaker needs to take note of its chewing and swallowing techniques. The food should be processed like that of a healthy horse. There can be some issues with its teeth that stops it from processing food as healthy horses do. There could be tissue scars, an abscess or strangles that stop the horse from consuming food usually. This can also result in painful swallowing and subsequent choking. This is why it is essential for the caretaker to give a close watch on the eating and the chewing style of the racehorse when it is detected with a low body condition.

Check whether the racehorse has interest in eating food or not

Very often you might find that the racehorse has little or no interest in eating, it is here that you must consult a vet and get the horse examined again. Often if the horse is malnourished, inflammation levels in the horse spike up and this give rise to serious health complications.

Often the horse might have teeth issues, and here a dentist should be consulted. With close examination, the root of the problem can be addressed and gradually the horse can be placed on a treatment plan.

Race horses are very dependent on their human caretakers much like domestic horses, so it is imperative for you to ensure that you take care of them in such a way like you love them. This will help you to ensure that the racehorse is happy and healthy both before the race and after the race with success!
