Wellness Plan

Over the last few years much new research in the areas of parasite control, metabolic disease, and Lyme infection in horses has become available to the veterinary community. Parasite resistance to many deworming products has developed rapidly and we are seeing the effect of this in many of our patients. Our understanding of parasite infection in adult horses has become much more nuanced and we have developed new protocols to detect and treat this condition in our patients. Metabolic disease, and its sequelae laminitis, also poses a risk to a large portion of our patients. We have improved our ability to test and treat diseases such as Cushings, insulin resistance, and equine metabolic syndrome. Finally, we now have an economical means to screen for Lyme disease.

These three disease complexes have emerged as major health issues facing our patients. In response we have designed an equine wellness plan to address these concerns while providing core vaccinations and EIA (coggins) testing.

Annual Wellness Plan – $250.00

  • Coggins Testing – plus PDF copy sent to your email
  • Core Vaccines – West Nile, Eastern & Western Encephalitis, Tetanus, and Rabies

We are excited about the impact that this plan can have on the health of your horses. If you are interested in the wellness plan please give us a call!
