Preventive equine medicine encompasses all that we do to help prevent disease and maintain optimum health. This includes developing a proper vaccination and deworming program for a horse’s individual situation. A three-year-old living at a training stable and showing every few weeks has different stresses and risk factors than does a twenty-year-old living in a back yard. Each horse has different needs and exposure to disease and parasites that should be taken into consideration to allow it to be as healthy as possible.
Each horse also has different nutritional requirements and changing needs for supplements. A yearly physical examination is an opportunity to evaluate not only an individual’s health and care, but the management and nutritional factors that play a major role in equine health. Problems can be identified and controlled before they become serious. Often, hoof issues are addressed and a farrier consulted before the problem gets out of hand. Many skin and eye issues that are not apparent to an owner can be identified and controlled before becoming serious.
A yearly dental exam is of paramount importance both for youngsters just beginning to work with bits and for older horses with age-related dental abnormalities. A missed dental abnormality will only become worse over time and cause adjacent and opposing teeth to become abnormal as well.
