“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” That saying holds true for horses also. As part of our routine care, we provide vaccinations, deworming, GVL Coggins testing, and dental care. At the time of service, we can discuss any issues you may have with your horse including nutritional needs, training programs, geriatric care, etc.
Time of need care
We offer care for your horse in case of medical colic, sickness, lameness, injury, metabolic problems, or chronic illness. We are equipped to provide intravenous fluids and most laboratory results are obtained within 24-48 hours.
An extensive physical examination, lameness evaluation, neurologic examination, and drug screen is offered by us prior to purchasing a horse. The information gathered is used by the prospective buyer and/or agent to determine whether the horse will be serviceable for it’s intended use. The exam often includes laboratory testing, digital radiographs, endoscopy, and ultrasound exams.
Aged horses can have sub-clinical health care issues that can be identified and treated before they become a problem. If your horse is over 15 years of age, we recommend a complete physical examination and blood testing to establish baseline values.
Evaluate the locomotion of your horse. We use a variety of techniques to identify the source(s) of lameness including physical examination and palpation, flexion tests, and joint and nerve blocks. Digital
radiography, ultrasound, and laboratory tests help us to further evaluate the source of your horse’s lameness.
Utilizes a fiber optic device for evaluating the upper airway of the horse, including the larynx, sinuses and guttural pouches. The trachea and upper esophagus can also be examined with this flexible device. Useful in pre-purchase examinations, pneumonias, or reactive airway disease.
