However they do appreciate - (as do farriers) - a clean, dry, secure place to work on your horse.
Please have the horse caught and ready for the visit. If the horse is having a dental exam, please do not feed it just before the vet arrives. If horse is very nervous and a buddy horse keeps it settled, have "Buddy" close by.
If you know the horse will react to injections or intranasal vaccinations, (temp taking, tubing, etc) please let the doctor know. HOWEVER - please allow them to do their job. You don't want a vet telling you how to do your job - please do not tell them how to do theirs!
