Pre Purchase Exams

When purchasing a horse at almost any level, it pays to have an equine veterinarian do a pre purchase exam to assure the horse's soundness and suitability. The buyer or an agent should be present at the exam, so any questions and concerns can be addressed in person.

The pre purchase examination is a veterinarian's evaluation of the horse to discover any problems that might affect the horse’s current or future performance and health. Most pre purchase exams include a physical exam where the heart, lungs, eyes, conformation, skin, teeth, legs, and feet are evaluated.

After the initial exam, the horse's gaits are evaluated (in hand, under saddle or both) before flexion tests are performed to identify any areas of soreness. The buyers should obtain a detailed medical history from the seller, including any radiographs, ultrasounds, vaccinations, dentals, lameness, joint injections, illnesses, etc.

If the buyer is comfortable with the findings of the examination up to this point, further diagnostics can be pursued. Radiographs are recommended to check for any boney abnormalities, particularly of any potential problem areas identified during the exam. A full set of radiographs is always recommended and will provide a baseline should any issues arise in the future.

Ultrasound can be performed on any old injuries, or thickened tendons. Additionally, laboratory testing can be performed, most commonly general health screening and toxicology (drug testing for any pain killers, sedatives or other medications). When all lab and x-ray results are complete, the buyer is sent the final report.

Equine veterinarians do not pass or fail a horse in a pre-purchase exam. Their purpose is to provide information to the buyer about the horse's condition, and it is ultimately up to the buyer to decide whether or not to purchase the horse.

Using the information gathered, these exams have saved many horse buyers much heartache and financial distress.
