Friday Feature: Equine Nurse

This week’s letter is N. If you missed last week’s Friday Feature, take a look at Ministries (Equine).

An equine nurse is someone who may be found working in a veterinary practice or at a large racing stable or horse breeding property.  They will be involved in many aspects of horse care as discussed below and may be required to work day hours or even night shifts.  They may also be required to attend a client’s property with a veterinarian if called out for a job.

Tasks may include:

  • administering medications
  • applying bandages
  • caring for wounds
  • looking after sick/injured horses
  • nursing young foals
  • administering injections
  • focusing on neonatal care (young foals)
  • taking vital signs
  • restraining horses for the veterinarian

The job can be heartbreaking at times when horses don’t respond to treatment; but it can also be incredibly rewarding.  It will require a lot of physical work as well as mental capacity.  If you’re interested in looking into this further, consider the following posts:
