To put your mind at ease, schedule a basic health exam. We will perform a physical exam on your horse and will go over any problems we notice or concerns you may have.

Preventative medicine can include vaccination against:

We can also perform:

Getting your horse a preventative health check-up is the best way to keep your equine healthy and prevent problems. We can also stock your emergency kit with medications you may need if a problem does occur. Protect your horse and your wallet from avoidable illness by scheduling your appointment today.

Whether your horse puts in a hard day’s work on the ranch, or you ride him strictly for recreational time, preventative medicine will help make sure your horse’s health is put first.
