Wellness Plan

Whether you are managing one horse or an entire barn, appropriate preventative care is one of the most important things you can provide to ensure the health of the horses in your care. North Florida Equine has developed a comprehensive annual care plan for your horse.  The plan provides preventative health care through twice yearly examinations, vaccinations, and parasite control.  Individual health records are maintained for each horse on the program.

Why does my horse need a wellness exam?

Twice yearly wellness exams are key to detecting health issues before they become serious problems. A full report will be provided to you with each exam. The wellness appointment is also an ideal time to discuss feeding, behavior, emerging diseases in our area, or any other concerns you may have with our veterinarians.

I buy my vaccines at the feed store, what are the benefits of having the veterinarian perform them instead?

With the number of vaccines available on the market, it is becoming increasingly difficult to know which ones to use and when to use them.  North Florida Equine will work with you to develop a vaccine program that is tailored to the needs of each individual horse with respect to age, life style, and travel schedule. 

In addition, many pharmaceutical companies stand behind their products with guarantees when their vaccines have been administered by a licensed veterinarian.
