Thanks to advances in veterinary medicine and dentistry, and the wide range of high quality commercial feeds available, today’s horses are living longer than ever before.

It is not uncommon to see horses and ponies living well into their late twenties or even thirties. While genetics do play a role in longevity, the level of care you provide for them can significantly impact your senior horse’s health.

We can help you keep your senior horse happy and healthy with:

  • Annual physical examinations
  • Regular dental checkups,
  • Specialized nutrition program
  • Vaccination as required
  • Parasite management program
  • Cushing’s testing and treatment.

When the time comes to say ‘farewell’ to your much-loved equine companion, we can also provide compassionate care for end of life decisions.
