Its that time of year! The holidays! and with the holidays come ponies under the tree :
Have you scheduled your pre purchase evaluation for that special gift?
Now is the time to do so. The pre purchase generally takes 1-3 hours depending on the extent of the exam. I always recommend a full physical, lameness, neurological exam as well as a set of basic radiographs. Depending on the exam findings I may recommend further diagnostics such as ultrasound, additional radiographs, endoscopy.
Blood work is also important to get for a cbc/chem panel. Drug testing if you are not familiar with the seller and it keeps everyone honest and trustworthy. Coggins as well and if not microchipped a chip should be implanted at the time of purchase.
