What to Expect
When you are searching for an equine veterinary care clinic, you should expect high-quality care as well as great service. At Southern Equine Service, our expert team of veterinary professionals strive to provide the best possible healthcare for your horses at our state-of-the-art equine veterinary facility, along with exceptional client service.
Your horse should have a wellness exam once or twice a year. By being proactive with your horse’s health, you will be able to avoid more serious problems in the future. This visit includes a full physical examination, a brief soundness check and fecal sampling for parasite analysis. Our doctors will also ask you about your horse’s health history. Be sure to bring all information that you have about your horse’s health to this veterinary visit.
In order for the exam to provide the best possible information, your horse’s cooperation is essential. Most horses that have good manners and are comfortable being handled by people do well during a wellness exam. Your veterinarian can guide you in the safest way to hold your horse during the examination procedures.
Changes to your horse’s health can often be so small that they go unnoticed. To assist your veterinarian in identifying potential problems, keep a regular journal of your horse’s health problems, including changes in behavior, eating habits, urination patterns and bowel movements. Be sure to share this information with your veterinarian during the routine wellness exam. This journal is also a good place to make note of any health conditions experienced by your horse and the treatments used. If you ever move out of the area and need to change vets — or seek veterinary care while on the road — the journal will ease the transition.
To ensure the best experience for you and your horse, it is important to choose an equine veterinarian with whom both of you feel comfortable. At Southern Equine Service, we have many qualified staff members who are committed to easing the stress of your horse’s healthcare visit. Our doctors will also explain all the procedures that your horse undergoes, so you understand what to expect.
Here at Southern Equine Service, we look forward to providing your horse with the unique lifelong care that it deserves.
