Full Circle Equine Offers Horse Health Care Camps


2018/09/04



Full Circle Equine Veterinary Services of Olive Branch, Mississippi offered a new kind of “camp” this summer. Full Circle hosted the riders and campers from Aintree Farm Stables Boot Camp on Friday July 13th to give them a tour of the clinic and teach them about horse health care – plus have fun doing it.

Approximately 20 people attended the clinic visit. They got a tour of the clinic, pharmacy, hospital and were shown the veterinary truck and all the supplies veterinarians carry for their mobile stops. Full Circle staff and veterinarians introduced them to some of the hospitalized horses and explained why they were stabled at the clinic. They even got to feed some carrots to Kakki's personal horses.

The group learned about the various types of equipment that veterinarians use on a daily basis: the dental speculum and float, ultrasound, x-ray machine and laser. They were shown several radiographs of hocks, stifles, carpus, fetlocks, and coffin bones inside the hoof.

When the tour was complete, the “students” quizzed on identifying parts of the horse’s body. They were divided into 2 different teams: Team Justify and Team Snowman for the knowledge competition. Team Justify won with 10 points and Team Snowman finished with 6 points.

Everyone ended the day with cool popsicles and Capri Sun drinks.  The campers took home buckets with horse related goodies and veterinarian-related coloring books.
