New Equine Fact Sheets Available From TheHorse.com

TheHorse.com launched the first in a series of Fact Sheets on Jan. 13 to widespread acclaim. This week we present more Fact Sheets on topics our readers have indicated are important to them based on searched terms, reader views on that topic, surveys/polls, and personal communications.

Following are the newest Fact http://www.thehorse.com/ViewArticle.aspx?ID=13442 Sheets now available on TheHorse.com:

• Prebiotics and Probiotics http://www.thehorse.com/pdf/factsheets/prebiotics-probiotics/probiotics.pdf > sponsored by Nutramax http://www.nutramaxanimalhealth.com/Products/Proviable-eq.aspx Laboratories, Inc.

• Identification http://www.thehorse.com/pdf/factsheets/identification/identification.pdf sponsored by Destron Fearing http://www.destronfearing.com/

Each Fact Sheet will:

§ Give an overview of a specific disease, condition, anatomy/physiology topic, or topic related to horses and their management;

§ Be written by a veterinarian and reviewed by an expert to ensure accurate information;

§ Be presented in a format you can download and save to your own computer, print and share, or e-mail to a friend.

After reviewing a Fact Sheet you can look through our Article Library of more than 14,200 articles to find more in-depth information on that topic, or perhaps even seek another Fact Sheet on a related topic.

Each Fact Sheet contains editorial content generated by The Horse staff and freelance veterinary writers, and each is brought to you by a partner sponsor.
