What we do

We complete a full physical exam, and provide you with a comprehensive pre-purchase exam write-up following the appointment

Each purchase examination can be tailored to meet your needs. If you aren’t sure what your needs are, we’re happy to discuss your goals and plan the best course of action. Typically, a purchase examination includes a complete physical and oral examination, soundness and neurologic exam, podiatry and ophthalmic assessment. Other services that might fit your needs include radiograph, ultrasound, endoscopy, blood work, and a reproductive exam.

At the end of your purchase examination, you will receive a written report to help you understand what we found and assist you in making a good decision about purchasing your next horse.
