It is recommended to have your horse examined annually, usually at the time of vaccinations. During a wellness exam, a veterinarian will listen to heart, lung, & GI sounds, check vital signs, give a body condition assessment, & discuss any findings or concerns.

Equine Care


It is recommended to start vaccinating foals at 4-6 months of age. Foals & other unvaccinated horses should receive booster vaccination(s) following the initial dose. All vaccinations are given annually, preferably in the spring, following initial series.


  • Eastern/ Western

  • Encephalomyelitis

  • Rabies

  • Tetanus

  • West Nile Virusries


Core vaccinations are vaccines tha
protect from diseases that are
endemic, have potential public health
signicance, are virulent/ highly infectious.


  • Strangles

  • Equine Herpesvirus 1&4

  • Equine Inuenza

  • Botulism

  • Potomac Horse Fever

Risk-Based vaccinations are recommended based on a risk-benet
analysis including travel, boarding, environmental factors, age, pregnancy, & more.


This tests for equine infectious anemia (EIA), a potentially fatal blood-borne infectious viral disease that produces a persistent infection among horses. Coggins testing is usually required when entering into exhibitions or competitive events, during interstate movement, change of ownership, and prior to auctions or sales. A Coggins test is good for one year.


It is recommended that a fecal analysis be performed at least twice annually. Dewormer type and frequency should be based on fecal analysis, clinical signs, and exposure.

Dental care is a critical part of equine wellness. Due to continuous tooth emergence and wear, horses are at risk for many dental abnormalities. Signs of dental issues include weight loss, diculty chewing, dropping feed, foul breath and ghting the bite. An annual oral examination is recommended. Our clinic provides advanced dentistry services to address the needs of our equine patients.


Regular farrier visits are important and should be performed every 6-8 weeks,
or otherwise as directed by your farrier.


While forage is the basis of a horse’s diet, vitamins, minerals, and other supplementations are key for adequate health. Consultation is available for specic nutritional needs and requirements for your horse.


It is recommended that males be castrated at 1-2 years of age. Proper anesthetic
restraint & pain management is performed with all equine castrations.
