Preventative Health Care

We will continue to offer our wellness packages this spring. Preventative Health Care and proper nutrition play an important role in your horse living a longer and healthier life. Playing a proactive role in your horse's health can help avoid unwanted emergencies. An annual physical exam allows your veterinarian to catch health issues early, before they become a threat. It also allows your veterinarian to advise on parasite control and nutrition, update proper vaccinations, collect a blood sample for screening, and perform a complete physical exam.

Our health care packages are designed to be affordable and customizable to your horse's needs. We will again be offering a Preventative Health CarePackage. Designed to help detect problems before your horse starts to show signs that something is wrong, this package provides you with more than $100 in savings and includes:

Preventative Health Care Package

Complete physical exam

Coggins test

Fecal Egg Count for parasites

CBC/Chemistry Blood panel

Fibrinogen level (an indicator of inflammation)


We will also offer an Endocrine Health Care Package, ideal for those horses at risk of, or being treated for, Equine Metabolic Syndrome or Pars Pituitary Intermedia Dysfunction (PPID; Cushing’s Disease). This package provides over $100 in savings and includes:
