Ask the Vet – COVID-19 and Equine Coronavirus

As the documented cases and concerns surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19) increase, we know that many riders are thinking about how to best protect their families, both two-legged and four-legged. We also know there are many questions about how coronavirus affects horses, so we had Dr. Lydia Gray, SmartPak’s Staff Veterinarian, Research & Medical Director, ask Dr. Frank Andrews of the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine some of the most common coronavirus questions we’ve heard.

We encourage customers to visit our FAQ and resource center for the latest information about COVID-19, its impact on companion animals, and our up-to-date response.
