Horses are living longer nowadays and in order to keep them happy and healthy it is important to keep up-to-date with their basic health care.
Wellness exams consist of evaluating the teeth and assessing the need for a dental, listening to the heart and lungs for any abnormalities, listening to the abdomen to ensure that there are appropriate gut sounds, checking the legs for any swelling or sensitivities and evaluating body condition scoring. This time is also used to discuss nutrition, regular fecal evaluations for parasite control, recommended deworming plans, screening for gastro-intestinal disturbances, and regular screening of bloodwork to check for anemia, infections, metabolic diseases, and systemic problems.
