Pre-Purchase Examinations

Pre-purchase examinations can be one of the most stressful parts of horse ownership, both for the buyer and the seller. At Russell Equine, we look to minimize this stress by providing a trusted opinion by tailoring the services provided to the situation at hand.

Pre-Purchase Services

With examinations that can vary from a simple physical to full toxicology and radiographic profiling, we try to answer all our client's concerns before the purchase is made. Pre-purchase services offered can include:

  • Physical examination

  • Neurologic examination

  • Standing and running flexions

  • Observation under saddle and at lunge

  • Breeding soundness examination

  • Endoscopic, radiographic, or ultrasound examination

  • Blood work, including complete blood count, and Biochemical profile, as well as toxicology screening

  • Special request testing

  • Insurance examination and documentation

Pre-purchase examinations receive an individually tailored report, following the British Equine Veterinary Association format.

If you can't be present for your pre-purchase exam, we will arrange to call you during the process to ensure that you are aware of all of our findings and any other services we may recommend.

If you aren't from Canada and are looking to buy a horse from our wonderful country, we can assist you with export paperwork to ensure a hassle-free trip across the border.
