The purpose of the pre-purchase exam is to assess any health issues that can affect the horse’s suitability for the potential owners intended use. It is important to remember that this exam does not guarantee future soundness. It can however, identify health concerns or problems that provide information to help you determine if this is a suitable horse for your needs. The pre-purchase exam will not be a pass or fail rather it is a fact finding (information finding) exam to help you minimize the risk of purchasing a horse that doesn’t fit your needs. The exam can be as superficial or in depth as you desire. Please call the clinic at 585 243-5560 with any questions.
