For some horses, an annual wellness check and visit from the vet is enough to last the whole year. For others, vet visits might be a more regular occurrence. How often does your veterinarian see your horse?

We posed this question to our readers in last week’s online poll. More than 650 people responded, and we’ve tallied the results!

Of the 682 respondents, 221 (32%) said their veterinarians see their horses twice a year, and 198 people (29%) said their horses have an annual vet visit. Another 171 respondents (25%) said their horses get a visit from the vet three or more times a year. The remaining 92 respondents (13%) indicated that their veterinarians only see their horses during emergencies.
