Pre-Purchase Examinations

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:

  • Overall Health Evaluation
    • Auscultation of heart and lungs
    • Evaluation of eyes
    • Dermatologic exam
    • Conformation evaluation
  • Thorough lameness exam including flexion tests   

Optional additional testing of the following can be performed upon request:

  • Digital Radiographs
  • Ultrasound
  • Bloodwork
  • Drug Screening
