A horse is a horse, unless it's a pregnant mare or her foal. Caring for these two unique classes of equines is completely different from any other horse. Different vaccinations, different deworming schedules, different nutritional needs - just to name a few.
The Merck Animal Health FoalCare ProgramSM is a comprehensive guide to healthcare from prebreeding through the foal's first birthday. The information you'll find here will help you with the little things like, "How much milk does a mare produce," to the big things like, "When should I deworm my foal?"
Of course, the Merck Animal Health FoalCare Program is no substitution for the expert advice of your veterinarian. Together, you and your veterinarian can create a healthcare plan customized for your farm. And that's the best start of all.
