Caring for Horses Through Life and Death

The Horse Report, published by UCDavis Center for Equine Health, has always been one of my “go to” references.

UC Davis CEH Horse Report October 2013
The latest issue of the Horse Report, "Caring for Horses Through Life and Death" is now available on the Center for Equine Health’s web site both as a downloadable pdf or in Zmag format.

This is an especially insightful look at preparing for our horse’s end of life and includes some deeply moving perspectives from the Center’s veterinarians. To be read now for information on some of the practical aspects of euthanasia, this issue is also a keeper - to be downloaded and saved, and perhaps printed and filed with our horse's other important papers, so it is available when we might need it.

Those of us privileged to have these creatures share their lives with us also know that they will leave - often way too soon.

What we have once enjoyed deeply we can never lose.
All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.
—Helen Keller
