Veins and Arteries

Printer Friendly
Knowing the difference between a cut vein and a severed artery can possibly save a horse’s life: If your horse cuts a vein, the wound will bleed gradually. However, if the wound is pulsing blood, an artery may have been severed and pressure should be applied. Profuse bleeding is an emergency—keep the pressure on and summon a veterinarian immediately.
