Preventative Care is important in keeping your horse’s health maintained throughout their life. These are the yearly requirements we recommend:
One or two physical exams per year
Spring and Fall vaccines
Fecal exams twice a year
Twice a year deworming
Please check with your veterinarian for a recommended health schedule for your horse.
Below is more in-depth information on preventative care we offer such as dentistry, deworming, nutrition, senior care, and vaccines.
One of the most important parts of responsible equine ownership is caring for their teeth and ensuring they are strong, clean and healthy. This is because oral health can have a significant impact on the overall wellbeing of your animal. Left untreated, dental problems can cause problems with the function of the nervous system, muscular balance, cardiovascular health, imbalance of chemicals in the body, digestive system and the structural stability of the head, neck, and tongue. Most equine dental problems begin as mild and treatable occurrences. However, they can rapidly increase in severity if left untreated. Regular check-ups by an experienced and qualified equine dentist are vital.
Below is an example of common deworming protocols that we often recommend for our patients. However, our doctors will work with you to customize a preventative care program that fits your individual horse at each appointment, particularly for foals, pregnant mares, or horses with other medical conditions or illnesses.
Below is an example of a common vaccine schedule that we often recommend for our adult patients. However, our doctors will work with you to customize a preventative care program that fits your individual horse at each appointment, particularly for foals, pregnant mares, or previously unvaccinated adults. Our office will send reminders, via mail or email, when your horse's next vaccine booster is due.
