PREPURCHASE EXAM

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.
