General medicine includes everything from annual physical examinations, routine vaccinations, dental exams, fecal exams, routine de-worming programs, hoof care consultations, elective surgery, and 24/7 emergency services.
Talk to your Carter equine veterinarian today to help you determine the ideal vaccine and de-worming program for your horse, herd, or barn.
Nutrition is another crucial aspect of preventative health care and encompasses balancing your horse’s dietary needs for roughage and concentrates. No matter what life stage or activity level, your Carter veterinarian is happy to refer you to the right feeding program. Managing your horse’s nutrition is critical to all aspects of maintenance, performance, and aides in the prevention of many diseases.
Finally remember that your annual to bi-annual dental exams are a very important part of your preventative care plan. A horse’s teeth affect proper chewing, digestion, nutrient absorption, and can even influence performance. See more about our dental services on the Dentistry page.
