Investing in this type of examination may save you money, time and effort in the long run, not to mention the disappointment and heartbreak in buying an unhealthy or unsound horse. It is important to discuss with the veterinarian that will be doing the examination, what the horse’s intended use will be and what your individual expectations are for this horse. This will be useful in determining suitability of the horse.
The pre-purchase examination involves a complete medical examination and a complete lameness examination as well as an evaluation of conformation, temperament and suitability for the intended use.
