Prepurchase Exams

Considering a Pre Purchase Exam?

Buying a horse can be a big investment, that is why it is important to investigate your future partner’s overall health and condition through a pre purchase examination. Regardless of the horse’s intended use, we can help determine if it will suit your needs by conducting a thorough exam. We will communicate directly with you to decide what should be included in the examination. Factors that enable a custom-tailored exam include the horse’s intended use; cost; and short- and long-term goals. The experienced vets at Aiken Equine can advise you if problems exist that will affect the horse’s future use and how it may affect the horse from a health standpoint. Depending on the results of the exam, the vet may recommend more tests, which are completely optional. Our vets are here to guide you based on budget and use of the horse on a case by case basis.

After the exam, we will discuss the findings with you in private. We will advise you on any existing medical problems so that you can make an informed purchasing decision. A quality pre purchase exam from Aiken Equine can help you make an informed decision and give you the opportunity to purchase the ideal equine partner.
