Upgrade your knowledge to improve the health and welfare of your mare and foal
As an equine veterinarian, there is nothing I love more than ensuring that you know exactly what to do during the birth of your foal, so that you have the greatest chance of your foal being born healthy.
I’m Iris van Gulik Equine Veterinarian from Holland. I’m working as an equine veterinarian since 2008.
In addition to treating sick horses, I think it’s super important to prevent problems. I do this by increasing owners’ health knowledge through online courses. I have translated my popular foaling course into English so that I can now assist breeders all over the world.
By sharing my knowledge about the birthing process and the first week of life of the foal with you, I teach you how to see through the eyes of an equine veterinarian. This enables you to notice problems earlier and know how to intervene, thereby increasing the chances of a healthy mare and foal.

I love to help improve the health and welfare of horses by increasing the owner's knowledge.
Many problems that I see can be prevented as the owner has more knowledge about the health of his horse. Better for the horse and much more pleasant for the owner! I like to help improve the health knowledge of horse owners, that’s why I regulary share tips and practical information on my instagram account: @equinevet_iris for you as a horse owner. Follow me!
