Routine Wellness Exams
Like you, large animal’s health needs to be monitored annually. We offer routine wellness exams so that we can make sure your large animal is on the right track of health and so we can manage their ongoing care to achieve optimum health.
A herd exam is where our team examines animals’ body condition, skin problems, lameness issues, and ectoparasite problems. We’ll look at lifestyle, pasture quality, nutrition, and other health factors.
Like small animals, large animals require vaccinations. We recommend the following vaccines for large animals:
- West Nile Virus
- Brucellosis (Bangs)
- Ultrabac 7
If your large animal is having issues moving around or standing, we’ll be there to help determine the cause of the issue—trauma, congenital or acquired disorders, infection, metabolic disorders, or nervous and circulatory system disease.
Before the purchase of a horse, a pre-purchase exam is conducted to identify any preexisting problems which may hinder a horse’s future performance and reduce buyer risk.
Coggins Papers are to test for a disease called Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA). This is a federally regulated disease and is deadly to horses.
Health certificates are to ensure that horses being transported are healthy and not potentially exposing innocent horses to disease. Health certificates require that a USDA-certified veterinarian inspects the horse and declares it healthy upon inspection.
