equine veterinary Pre-purchase exams in ireland



The constant and uprising success of  the Irish Sport Horses and the excellence of the Thoroughbred horses bred in Ireland are more than ever  recognized assets, with medals and top placements at major events and continuous flow of winners at the highest levels worldwide confirming the high standards of breeding.


In addition,  the increased interest  in equestrian sports locally and abroad and the large output of champions thoroughbreds from Irish sales,  have stimulated the  horse trade even further,  with a consequent upscaling of  pre-purchase veterinary examinations  with a need of harmonization of  international standards.

We can offer a thorough and professional five stages vetting exam throughout Ireland,  at sales complex and at our premises, with different digital X-rays sets  tailored as requested, and with specific ultrasound views to complement the diagnostic imaging , plus  video-endoscopy and thermography if requested.



...  Just few thoughts about vetting horses.


Now days the role of the equine vet, has become increasingly sought beyond the health-provider for horses,  as he is also the professional to engage before, during and after the purchase of a horse or a pony.


In this view, we want to provide a veterinary service that would be helpful in the decision making process when purchasing a horse, giving a risk assessment of the horse being vetted and adding it to all the other factors that induce that particular client  to buy that specific animal at that time and place !


Therefore , we wish to connect and communicate with our clients as most extensively as possible to match their requirements  and offer the most appropriate services and advices.


There is a lot of information on the web about the topic, and  I would suggest to consider  this article from the American Association of Equine Practitioners as it is very informative and worth reading for anyone involved, from the breeder through the bloodstock agent to the end user !
