Pre-purchase examinations can be one of the most stressful parts of horse ownership- both for the buyer and the seller. At Russell Equine, we look to minimize this stress by providing a trusted opinion- tailoring the services provided to the situation at hand.
With examinations that can vary from a simple physical to full toxicology and radiographic profiling- we try to answer all our clients concerns before the purchase is made.
Pre-purchase services offered can include:
Standing and running flexions
Observation under saddle and at Lunge
Breeding soundness examination
Endoscopic, radiographic, or ultrasound examination
Blood work, including complete blood count, and Biochemical profile, as well as toxicology screening
Special request testing
Insurance examination and documentation
Each pre-purchase examination is accompanied by an individually tailored report, following the British Equine Veterinary Association format.
If you cannot be present for your pre-purchase examination, fear not! We will arrange to call you during the examination to ensure that you are made aware of all of our findings, and any other services we may recommend be performed.
If you are not from Canada, and are looking to buy a horse from our wonderful country- we can assist you with export paperwork to ensure you have a hastle-free trip across the border.
