DMG Productions is currently gathering content for next quarter's programming as they prepare to take viewers on an entertaining and educational journey inside the world of equine health. This two part series will be presented commercial free and there will be several topics addressed covering a wide spectrum of areas surrounding horse health and the industry. From dental care to farriery; reproductive health to joint care and beyond, these special edition episodes will explore it all.
“The driving force behind this episode is to take a closer look at some of the industry leaders and how their products, services and technologies are contributing to long-term horse health and quality of life,” said Ryann Watkin, producer for the series. “Most of the major health problems plaguing horses today could be easily cured or prevented if there was more education out there for the Equestrian,” she added.
Charlie Cowan, executive producer for the series said, “Take hoof care for example. There are many companies that supply products for horse hooves, because the hoof is essentially the foundation of the horse; it is the basis from which many other health concerns stem. Proper hoof care prevents strain on the joints—another major issue in equine health. Proper nutrition from the start is essential is preventing both of these aliments.”
According to Mary Boyce, DVM, maintaining a horse’s nutrition can help alleviate some hoof problems. Feeding good quality hay, supplementing the appropriate amount of vitamins and trace minerals, and making sure the horse has constant access to fresh, clean water is important for hoof health and overall horse health. Poor nutrition can lead to future hoof problems, and correcting a horse’s nutrition can gradually improve hoof health. Cooperation between horse owners, veterinarians and equine nutritionists is needed to ensure proper horse nutrition.
