- The aim of the pre-purchase examination (PPE) is to carry out a thorough clinical examination, on behalf of a potential purchaser, to identify and assess factors of a veterinary nature that could prejudice a horse’s suitability for its intended use. Each PPE is carried out on behalf of a specific prospective purchaser so that the opinion can be based on that purchaser’s individual needs and the intended use of the horse.
- Our team are happy to carry out pre-purchase vettings on behalf of our registered clients or on behalf of non-registered clients. Both limited (2 stage) and full (5 stage) examinations are available. Insurance examinations can also be carried out for an existing owner.
- We ensure that the more experienced members of the practice carry out vettings. They have all completed pre-purchase vetting courses.
- Pre-purchase examinations can be carried out at the practice using our hospital facilities, which include a large manège and hard lunging area.
