HORSE SIDE VET GUIDE IS THE MOST HIGHLY RATED HORSE HEALTH APP AVAILABLE! - Do you have questions about your horse’s health? Search for answers in HSVG, a massive & constantly growing database of equine health info – conveniently available to you “horse side.”

HSVG was created by Doug Thal DVM DABVP, a lifelong horseman & veterinarian that has practiced exclusively equine veterinary medicine for over 20 years & is board certified in equine practice.

HSVG provides helpful information about equine health from the moment you notice a problem with your horse - My Observation.  It contains practical advice, suggested skills, and questions to discuss with your vet.

HSVG is of value in an emergency and non-emergency, and it helps you distinguish between the two. HSVG also contains dozens of high quality instructional videos, and other media designed to enable you to become an active participant in ensuring your horse’s good health.

However, HSVG is not structured as a simple decision tree that takes you down a singular path based on your input. It is not a substitute for your local equine veterinarian. It does not, and cannot, anticipate and address all of the subtle variations and unique circumstances associated with your horse’s health. That is your veterinarian's job.

- Make better decisions about your horse’s health.
- Increase the quality of communication between you and your vet.
- Follow a logical thought process for addressing any equine heath care problem.
- Utilize a quality alternative to Dr. Google.

Ok – so what is Horse Side Vet Guide exactly?

HSVG is a custom-built relational database of equine health information that contains concise information about common problems to rare diseases. Records are contained in 1 of 9 categories:

- My Observations
- Vet Diagnostics
- Vet Diagnoses
- Vet Treatments
- My Skills
- My Supplies
- Terms & Topics
- Media
- Outside Resources

These records are extensively interlinked, providing a uniquely contextualized approach to any equine health issue.

We continuously add and update the records in HSVG. We have placed great emphasis on completing the MY OBSERVATIONS records first. You can find "full access" records with a keyword search, in the alphabetical browse lists, and hyperlinked inside other records. Incomplete (or "partial access") records are listed inside full access records, with no hyperlink. Many other records are hidden from view, and will be available later. After we complete a partial or hidden record we change it to "full access" and it becomes immediately available to you after the app has been synchronized to your mobile device.

Must for horse owners

Wonderful app. Gives lots of helpful information and recommendations. Just used to aid me when my horse choked. Tell you what information (and how to get the info) you should have when you call the vet. And gives you additional info you can try if the first treatment doesn’t work. Includes great illustrations and ‘how to’ videos .

Essential for every horse owner

I stumbled across the website — loved it-so I was thrilled to see they had a mobile app as well. Well worth the 4.99 to get it. I love the Horse health evaluation checklist and form, plus the videos that show you how to do it are so helpful. This is one app I will never delete.
