Examining Your Horse

Examining Your Horse

doctor examining horse
Even if you fall in love with the horse, do not buy it before the animal has been thoroughly examined by a veterinarian with experience in performing purchase examinations. Long-time horse owners almost always have a veterinarian examine any animal before purchase and first-time owners should certainly do so.

Your veterinarian will check the horse for:

  • Age
  • General Condition - alertness, health of the eyes, ears, heart, lungs, digestive system
  • Health of skin & coat
  • Soundness of Musculoskeletal System - limbs evaluated, conformation abnormalities noted, and the condition of the feet and type of shoeing observed
  • Internal & External Parasites (Worms & Ticks)

In order to maintain the highest level of health it is essential you discuss horse care issues such as grooming, vaccinations and deworming with your Veterinarian. Horses are unpredictable creatures and accidents do happen! Essential first aid should always be at hand, including the important items that every standard equine first aid kit should contain.

  • "I want to give a huge shout out to Dr Matt Schaefer with Dairyland Veterinary Service. I had been struggling to get weight on Kahlua. She wouldn't eat anything I put in front of her. Dr Matt came out and looked at her and we discussed her attitude and habits. He had a good feeling she had ulcers so he suggested treating her with ulcerguard. I got her on it and she is just 2 days from finishing the 28 day treatment. The change in her is phenomenal. She's put on weight and now looks perfect!
    And "
