Dr. Rutz in southern California is no stranger to the Budweiser Clydesdales as he has been seeing them for many years. He caught up with the West Coast Hitch shortly after they finished filming this year’s Budweiser Super Bowl commercial, “Puppy Love,” for a check-up and vaccinations. To ensure the Clydesdales are healthy they see the vet for vaccinations and health certificates twice a year.
Clydesdale check-ups include a lot of similar procedures as human check-ups including taking temperatures and checking heart rate. But they also include items tailored to horses like making sure they are parasite free. Ensuring the Clydesdales are healthy is a high priority for handlers so they can continue to show the famous horses across the country. And, of course, the horses are happy to be healthy as well!
