Buying a horse is a huge financial and emotional investment, our doctors here at OCEC recommend a pre-purchase exam before making the commitment. Our veterinarians will perform a thorough examination to help the buyer identify pre-existing conditions that might limit the time frame the horse will be considered useful in its profession.
Our standard evaluations include:
- Evaluation of Eyes
- Auscultation of heart and lungs
- Thorough lameness exam including flexion tests
Optional additional testing of the following can be performed upon request:
- Digital Radiographs
- Drug Screening
