Q. My gelding had a really bad bout of cellulitis last summer, and we almost lost him to the disease. I've heard there is a greater chance he will get it again in the future. What are some possible preventative measures I can take to protect my horse?
Atty is my first young horse in nearly a decade. What does she need to know now that will help her in the future? I've started a list and would appreciate input!
