Routine Equine Veterinary Care

Routine preventive care for horses includes everything from annual physical examinations, vaccinations, and deworming to dental exams and diagnostics. At Equine Surgery & Medicine, we offer comprehensive preventive care, which aims to safeguard your horse from common diseases and disorders and prevent their spread to the entire herd.

By prioritizing preventive care, we ensure that your equine partner has the best chance at a long and healthy life. Our dedicated team works closely with you to create a personalized preventive care plan tailored to your horse's individual needs, lifestyle, and potential risk factors.

Finally, remember that your horse's annual and bi-annual dental exams are a very important part of your preventive care plan. Issues with a horse’s teeth can affect proper chewing, digestion, and nutrient absorption, and can even negatively impact performance.

The ultimate goal of preventive care is a healthy and happy horse. Talk to your veterinarian today to get set up with a preventive health care schedule that includes a yearly exam, routine dental care, and annual vaccinations.
