Preventative Care

At Rocky Valley Veterinary Service, we understand that nothing is more important than caring for your horse and providing preventive care before they get sick. Our equine vet is here to help you. Below are the benefits of vaccinations, pet exams, and more to help your pet stay in good health.

What Is Equine Preventive Care?

Equine preventive care is essential to keeping your horse healthy. Our equine vet can perform several services and treatments, such as:

  • Comprehensive physical exam
  • Vaccinations
  • Early detection and diagnosis
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Parasite control programs 
  • Dental exams
  • Individualized vaccination strategy for each horse.
  • Digital Coggins test results via GlobalVetLink
  • Fecal examinations, egg count, and targeted deworming schedule
  • Wellness exams
  • Dermatology exams
  • Ophthalmic exams
  • Parasite control consults
  • Castrations
  • Digital health certificates
  • Microchipping with HomeAgain or TempChips


Vaccines are an effective way to prevent some of the most common horse illnesses and diseases. Vaccinations help protect your pet from certain viral and bacterial infections, such as West Nile Virus, Eastern/Western Encephalomyelitis, Tetanus, Influenza, RabiesStrangles, and more. Our equine vet will work with you to develop an effective vaccination plan for your horse, including annual boosters or booster shots as needed.

Wellness Exams

At Redtail Equine Veterinary Service, we want to ensure every pet gets comprehensive care. A routine Wellnesspet exam can detect early illness or potential health issues. We will carefully examine your pet’s:

  • Skin
  • Eyes
  • Ears
  • Teeth


Our equine vet may also recommend diagnostic testing, depending on your pet’s needs.

Nutritional Counseling

Good nutrition is essential for any horse’s health and well-being. Our equine vet can provide nutritional counseling to ensure your pet receives an optimally balanced diet for their age, lifestyle, and activity level. We can also offer advice on exercise plans, supplements, and more.

Parasite Control Programs

Another crucial part of preventive care is parasite control. Our equine vet can help you develop a comprehensive program to protect your horse from internal and external parasites, such as worms, ticks, fleas, lice, and more. We will work with you to determine the best parasite control product for your pet’s needs.
