Do You Manage a Rescue Facility?

Rescues see many horses with lymphedema due to the despair of the horse owner who can no longer care for their horse. Depending on the severity of the problem, caring for a horse with lymphedema requires dedication and commitment, which can get expensive fast. Learning to manage the disease not only helps your horse live a happier life, it’s cheaper too.


Our workbook, the Horse Owner’s Guide to Equine Lymphedema, could be a great asset to your team and your business. You and your staff will learn how to recognize this condition, its causes, what happens at different stages, and what it takes to manage it appropriately. With the knowledge you gain, you will be able to determine if your rescue business can sustain the cost of taking in an afflicted horse.


It will help you answer the following questions:


  • Could this horse possibly have lymphedema? If so, you will be able to speak knowledgeably with your vet to determine what stage the horse is in and its prognosis, so you can make an informed decision.
  • What’s the probability the horse can be placed in a new home?
  • If the horse is placed in a new home, what kind of support will your business provide the new owners so they can manage this condition effectively and efficiently?
  • If long term care is needed, is your rescue in a position to properly support the horse based on your current commitments, time and finances?
  • What plan or process do you have in place that will demonstrate you can make a positive change and outcome for this horse? For example, do you have a team of volunteers who can help manage the horse?
  • Is there a team leader that has a schedule and process to ensure this horse is taken care of every day?
  • How will volunteer turnover be managed?

These are just a sample of questions every rescue business must ask themselves when they are faced with the decision to take on a horse with lymphedema. The knowledge gained from our workbook will help you to determine if this is within your rescue’s mission. Although equine lymphedema is not curable, it is manageable. You just need to learn the techniques to do so, something only those of us at HEAL, and our now our students, are certified to do in the US.


HEAL is always willing to help a worthy cause that will bring about positive change and outcomes and will assist with making an informed decision.
