Equine Preventative Medicine

We recommend that your horse be examined at least once yearly for an overall health check.


Equine Preventative Medicine:

  • Annual/Biannual Health Exams
  • Vaccinations
  • Deworming
  • Annual Blood Work


These health checks help us to document and see how your horse is normally so that we can better diagnose an abnormality or sickness.


An annual health exam would consist of an overall impression and report of the horse:
  • General Appearance
  • Hair coat evaluation
  • Oral exam
  • Pulse
  • Respiration
  • Lymph Node Assessment
  • Movement Assessment


Please call to talk to Drs. Higgins or Lundquist with any questions.
We’re happy to answer any and all questions about equine surgery and the facilities and services offered here at Alpine.
