Annual wellness exam
Annual exams are thorough physical exams. We follow an extensive checklist to assure a comprehensive assessment. The exam begins at your horse`s nose and ends at the tail. We spend time looking at legs and devote considerable time to soundness. Annual exams are critical to evaluate the current health of your horse, to focus on and address areas of concern. We spend time discussing:

feeding schedules and habits
vaccination programs
shoeing and foot care
deworming and supplements

These exams are opportunities to ask as many questions as possible, we advise writing a list. Annual exams are most ciritical to help identify and address possible problem areas, and most importantly to help reduce the chances of certain illnesses, disorders or other health problems that may be preventable. Our annual form provides us with a medical history of your horse or horses. We will provide you with a summary of your horse`s current health and any suggestions that may improve his condition.

Extensive pre-purchase exam
Thorough physical exam from nose to tail, with an increased emphasis on lameness and soundness. We have a 6 page form that incorporates detailed categories. We only provide a complete and thorough pre-purchase exam to ensure that nothing is overlooked. A large portion of our business deals with lameness issues. We can accurately identify problem areas. We also make an effort to appropriately match a rider with the correct horse.

Equine Dentistry
Maintaining the health of your horse`s teeth is critical to overall well being and performance. Depending on the age and condition of the individual, horse teeth should be checked at least once per year and sometimes more often. Poorly maintained teeth can lead to poor nutrition and possible training issues depending on the severity of the condition.

We use the latest technology to ensure that your horses teeth are as healthy as they can be. The horse is first sedated to make them comfortable and easy to work on. A gag is then used to keep their mouth open and make the teeth visible. We then use power dental equipment that is especially designed for the equine mouth. The process is quick and painless and provides the best possible outcome compared to the old fashioned practice of hand floating.
