Preventicare Program

<< Back to Client Education

The Preventative Care Program (PCP) was developed to provide our clients with a solid wellness care protocol providing attention to the four pillars of equine care: Nutrition, Dentistry, Vaccinations and Anthelmintics (parasite control).

The PCP provides two ranch visits per year. A physical exam is performed on the horse, during this exam is the perfect time for the owner to ask questions regarding the care of the horse and draw attention to particular conditions unique to this particular horse. Nutrition and other aspects of care can be discussed at this time as well. The horse is then inoculated with the appropriate vaccinations. Dewormers are provided to the owner for administration during the following months.

Dental care is provided for the horse at one of the two ranch visits. This is extremely important for both feed utilization and performance. Geldings will have the sheath cleaned at the same time they are sedated for the oral exam and dental care.

Other services can be added to the PCP for additional fees. An example of this would be other vaccinations that are deemed necessary for your particular equine companion.

Below is a list of services provided with the PCP.

  • 1 Physical Exam
  • 1 5-way vaccination
