If your dog or horse is injured on a farm, the first thing to do would be to locate internal injuries and wounds to the best of your ability. If there is a serious injury like bleeding or a wound that cannot be fixed, it is best to take the animal to a vet. In the case of joint injuries and if your dog is unable to walk, this would also call for medical intervention from the veterinarian.
