E.L.V.E.S. Are Keeping Reindeer Ready to Fly This Christmas Eve

Are you worried about Santa’s reindeer on their longest work night of the year? Have no fear! E.L.V.E.S. are standing by to address your concerns and make sure our favorite reindeer stay happy and healthy throughout the night.


Horse Vet Corner is a Facebook group dedicated to answering equine medical questions. However, sometimes they address questions that pertain to other mammals in the animal kingdom.

Fortunately, the veterinarians of Horse Vet Corner assured us that not only are Santa’s reindeer in tip-top shape, but also the vets will be at the ready to assist as necessary:

It’s good to know that, no matter what the need, the highly skilled team of E.L.V.E.S. will be on call around the globe to help Santa and his reindeer.

Merry Christmas Eve, Horse Nation!
