Biosecurity Series

Managing Sick or New Horses - #8 Isolate New or Sick Horses

Monitor the health of your horse.
Think DEPP! How are they: Drinking, Eating, Pooping, Peeing?

Snotty nose or a cough? What is their temperature? - Taking daily temperatures helps you spot issues before you see any signs.

Give a sick horse its own stall as far away from other horses as possible and isolate your new horse for 2 weeks (recommended).

Use separate tack and equipment - tip: use a piece of red duct tape to label all equipment.

Work with sick/new horses last and always wash up after handling them.
