Pre-Purchase Examinations

Creekside Veterinary Service recommends you have a pre-purchase examination completed before you buy your next horse or pony. This examination will provide you with valuable information about your horses current medical needs. The format can be tailored to your specific needs, but involves at the minimum a thorough physical examination from head to tail which includes an ocular, neurologic, lameness, and cardiac examination. Digital radiographs are encouraged to establish a baseline of skeletal changes. Blood work, reproductive exams, ultrasound exams, and upper airway endoscopy are also among the ancillary procedures available.
