Stables Equine Practice Pre Purchase Examinations


Pre Purchase Examinations (Vettings)

A pre-purchase examination is a thorough evaluation of the horse and its suitability for its intended purpose. Our vets have extensive experience in guiding you through this process and will discuss with you the risks of any findings from the vetting.

In the majority of situations a 5 stage vetting is most suitable; a 2 stage vetting only can be carried out on request and requires the purchaser to sign a disclaimer recognising its limitations.

Insurance companies often require pre-purchase examinations to be undertaken in order to insure the horse, so check with your insurance company what requirements they have prior to the vetting; horses above a certain value often require radiographs to be taken.
