We highly recommend a prepurchase exam for any prospective buyer. The purchase of a horse can be a huge financial and emotional investment. The veterinarians at LaSalle perform a thorough examination to help identify any pre-existing conditions that may limit the intended use of the horse.
We evaluate the following systems during our pre-purchase exam:

  • Musculoskeletal System
  • Cardiovascular System
  • Ophthalmic Exam
  • Respiratory Exam
  • Neurological Exam
  • Comprehensive Dental Exam

Our soundness evaluation includes:

  • Palpation of the musculature, tendons and ligaments
  • Palpation of the joints
  • Palpation of the neck and spine
  • Hoof evaluation and conformation
  • General body conformation
  • Evaluation of the gait and if possible under saddle
  • Flexion test of all limbs

Optional Test Include:

  • Digital radiographs
  • Diagnostic Ultrasound
  • Blood work screen
  • Drug test screen
  • Fecal egg count

At the time of the examination, our veterinarians will discuss a preventative health program including recommended vaccinations, deworming program, dental care, nutrition and any other health concerns.

Phenomenal veterinarians and excellent service! I appreciated the care the vets and technicians took for each and every one of my animals. Their attention to detail and concern for the well being of my stock was much appreciated.
