’s Ask the Vet LIVE event on Horse Adoption and Rescue occurred on Sept. 21, and the recording is now available below!

With the current drought, high hay prices, and other factors, more horses are in need of homes and many people have questions about horse adoption and rescue. How can you find the right horse to rescue or adopt? How can you find a reputable rescue if you have a horse to rehome? If your newly adopted horse came from an unhealthy situation, what common health and behavioral issues might you expect to see, and how can you safely rehabilitate the horse? How do you adopt a mustang or burro?

Our audience received answers to these and many other questions during our free Ask the Vet LIVE online Q&A chat about Horse Adoption and Rescue on Wednesday, Sept. 21, and you can hear the discussion below.
