There are a variety of causes, so a thorough examination may be necessary to determine the issue. We have vast experience treating lameness, so rest assured that your horse is in good hands.

Insurance & Pre-purchase Exams

When purchasing a horse, it may be required that the animal have a pre-purchase exam performed. This allows an equine veterinarian to examine and detect any existing or potential health issues that may affect the horse.

There are four phases to a prepurchase exam, in which our equine veterinarians assess a horse’s complete condition. Beginning with a thorough identification of the horse’s distinguishing characteristics, we then move on to examining the horse’s body and internal organs. 

If you have any questions about pre-purchase exams, please contact us today at (307) 763-4525.
