Your horse’s dental care is essential to his well-being and regular examinations and dental maintenance are especially necessary for today’s horses. With proper dental care, your horse will use feed more efficiently, maintain proper body weight, and carry a bit more comfortably when bridled. Our veterinarians have received additional training in equine dentistry and are equipped with the latest dentistry equipment, making dental procedures more effective and more comfortable for your horse from routine floats to advanced equilibrations and extractions.
No need to wait for blood test results when your horse is sick. We are able to run complete blood work in-house to evaluate how your horse’s immune system is working and assess how major organs are functioning. We also perform all fecal egg counts in-house, so you don’t have to worry about altered results from sample damage in shipping. Iowa Equine is an accredited Coggins lab and can perform Coggins tests for all horses who need them at our in-house laboratory.
Iowa Equine veterinarians know horses are as different as the whorls on their foreheads. We can help you tailor vaccine and deworming plans to fit each of your equine athletes and companions so they are protected from the pasture to the show pen. For horses who show or travel routinely, we offer electronic Coggins and health certificates, making forgotten forms a thing of the past. You can print as many forms as you would like with this system or access any of your horse’s required documents from your smartphone or tablet.
Buying horses can be a considerable financial commitment. We can help you evaluate your prospect for soundness and longevity with a pre-purchase examination. Iowa Equine has the most advanced digital X-ray system on the market, which allows us to take our lameness exams further and evaluate joints for evidence of existing or impending problems so you can make the best and informed purchase possible. We also offer economical drug screening options for NSAIDs, sedatives, and more—please inquire when making your appointment.Pre-Purchase Form
