Equine Massage

Looks as if the Veterinary Lobby is operating in full force in NY. Can you imagine a Vet performing an hour to an hour and a half of Equine Massage and charging only $120 to $130 ??? Most Vets charge nearly that just to show up on your farm. Before doing a thing.
What the state of NY and it's Veterinary Lobby is in effect doing, is relegating our Equine companions to a a life of pain, discomfort, or limited motion because of their arrogant position that no one knows anything about horses, except Vets. It is a money grab of the first order, and puts the horse in danger of having to suffer at the hands of greed.

NY Requires Vet License for Equine Massage

I'm glad to hear you're helping her. This is a ludicrous law that should be changed.
Is this a recent article? I don't see a date.

I don't see where there is a problem with this if it helps the animal

This is just unbelievable. Will the workers who worse the horses before to go to eight years of school to clean a horse? How far are we going with this this is ridiculous. She's touching the horse and gently massaging it. Do you have veterinarian testimony or evidence that this could cause harm to the horse? If so I'm sure we'd all like to know what kind of harm this could cause to the horse. You are not only harming her you are harming all the horses she helps. Is this all you people have to do? If so and I think we need many less of you.
