Before Your Visit with Dr. Getty
Please Review the Following Before Your Consultation
Before visiting with Dr. Getty, it is important that you grasp the importance of keeping forage (hay and/or pasture) flowing through the digestive tract at all times.
This is the very foundation of your horse's health and must be met before any other feeding plan can be implemented.
You will find a variety of articles on free-choice feeding and dealing with obesity (if this is a concern for your horse) in Dr. Getty's Resource Library, which you are encouraged to read before any others.
