The Emerging Stars… Keeping fit and staying healthy are keys to maintaining this group, as young athletes will need close veterinary guidance to monitor development and preserve soundness. Our goal with Middle Age equines ranging from 5-16 years is keep them developing properly so that they can meet their full potential!
“Maintenance” and “preserving soundness” are our twin goals for this working equine group. Ensuring your horse remains pain-free and comfortable is our concern. We often advise on appropriate work schedules in relation to your specific horse. We are also concerned about your horse’s long-term comfort and we have ways of helping your horse now, so that in 10 years, he is not suffering the consequences of decisions made today. It does not need to be expensive, it just needs to be discussed, and a reasonable, considerate plan appropriate to your horse can be developed.
My horse is sound. Why do I need a vet?
Because NO horse stays sound forever. Concerned horse owners seek to keep their horses comfortable of a long period of time. Veterinarians hold the key to preserving soundness and guiding you in a manner that optimizes the number of sound years and postpones age-related changes when possible. We have the technology to identify sub-clinical lameness to intervene sooner in smaller, more targeted ways.
Does a trail horse need help?
Yes. To a lesser degree, but all horses need some maintenance.
Can Total Equine take care of my high-end sport horse?
Absolutely yes! We serve many well-known horses and owners. We have the tools, techniques, and experience to handle all levels of horse. In the rare instance when we cannot directly solve the problem, we have a nationwide network of specialists that we rely upon to fill in the gaps.
