Spring will be here soon! It will be time for vaccinations and preparing for the next riding season. Here at Allegheny Equine we are aware that the cost of preventative care for your horse increases each year. Knowing that finances play a role in our clients’ decisions, we are offering our Annual Preventative Care Days. We hope this program will save you money and still allow your horses to benefit from very important annual preventative health care procedures.
Starting in March, Allegheny Equine will be scheduling a veterinarian in a limited geographic area to perform preventative health care services including: annual exams, vaccines, fecal egg counts, deworming, sheath/udder cleanings, Coggins testing, dental exams and dental floats. If you sign up for the designated day we are in your area, your farm call will only be $29.68 per client (regular farm call price is $68-78). By keeping our vet in a smaller region, this will decrease our fuel costs and drive time and these savings can be passed on to you. This program is for individuals, not large boarding barns where farm calls are already split amongst multiple clients.
The staff at Allegheny Equine invests significant time and effort redesigning our preventative health care program each year. Changes in vaccines and vaccine technology require updating protocols to keep pace with changing conditions. Adapting deworming programs to reflect the ever-evolving potential parasitic risk and providing the best dental preventatives are also at the forefront of an active health care program. Assessments of your newborns, yearlings and older horse populations for problems inherent in those age groups are recommended to prevent future issues. Farm visits allow our veterinarians to observe your animals in their home environment and to administer vaccinations and complete other procedures at your farm. Observation of your horses’ habitat and feed sources can help the veterinarian make recommendations that aid in keeping your horses fit and healthy.
These Preventative Care Days provide the client with a significant savings, but it also requires forethought, organization and communication on both the client and our part.
Below you will find a schedule of where we will be on specific dates. If you have questions about Preventative Care Days or would like to schedule an appointment for a particular day, please call us at 724-325-4615.
