Equine Preventative Medicine

We recommend that your horse be examined at least once yearly for an overall health check.
Equine Preventative Medicine:
  • Annual/Biannual Health Exams
  • Vaccinations
  • Deworming
  • Annual Blood Work
These health checks help us to document and see how your horse is normally so that we can better diagnose an abnormality or sickness.
An annual health exam would consist of an overall impression and report of the horse:
  • General Appearance
  • Hair coat evaluation
  • Oral exam
  • Pulse
  • Respiration
  • Lymph Node Assessment
  • Movement Assessment

Equine Dentistry

We recommend that your horse receive an oral and dental exam yearly.
Early detection of problems will most often prevent the need for costly, involved or emergency procedures down the road.
Equine Dentistry Highlights:
  • Performance floats using mechanized rotary dental tools.
  • Bit seats can be placed using the rotary dental tools.
  • Annual oral exams.
  • Wolf teeth extraction to prevent bit interference.
