Ask the Vet LIVE
Ask the Vet LIVE is a free equine health care podcast and Q&A. Coordinated monthly by the editors of TheHorse.com and equine veterinarians, each Ask the Vet LIVE focuses on hand-picked equine health care topics, conditions, and concerns. Veterinarians familiar with the subject present how-to's, hands-on advice and helpful topical information in an easy to follow format. In addition to answering pre-submitted questions during the podcast, veterinarians are available to answer questions submitted during each monthly equine health event. Each presentation is approximately 60-minutes in length and is available after the initial live event for on-demand listening on TheHorse.com.

Do you have a horse health question for a vet?
We will not diagnose any health problem or recommend treatment as we can't evaluate the horse. Only a veterinarian who has examined the horse can do that. Due to the volume of e-mails we receive, we can't answer all of them, but all questions will be considered. Questions can be directed to AsktheVet@TheHorse.com.
