When purchasing a horse, it may be required that the animal have a pre-purchase exam performed. This allows an equine veterinarian to examine and detect any existing or potential health issues that may affect the horse.
There are four phases to a pre-purchase exam, in which our equine veterinarians assess a horse’s complete condition. Beginning with a thorough identification of the horse’s distinguishing characteristics, we then move on to examining the horse’s body and internal organs.
