Pre-Purchase Veterinary

pre-purchase veterinary inspection

Many buyers ask for an equine pre-purchase veterinary inspection when buying a horse or pony. This can identify any pre-existing problems which may hinder a horse’s future performance, helping to reduce buyer risk. The Irish Horse Gateway has compiled a list of veterinary practices with equine experience who can assist buyers with pre-purchase veterinary inspections.

List of Veterinary Practices

The list below are the veterinary practices with the equipment and expertise necessary to complete clinical, x-ray and scoping assessments of horses for studbook and sales purposes.
