The essence of the wellness program instilled at Fouts Equine is annual preventative maintenance. Keeping equine clients at optimal performance and health is a firsthand priority. Dr. Fouts recommends a medical evaluation at least once a year to ensure that the horse(s) are in sound health and that any potential concerns are detected before they turn into more serious conditions.
The comprehensive checkup will include:
-Annual vaccinations including tetanus, Eastern and Western equine encephalomyelitis, West Nile virus, influenza, herpesvirus and rabies
-Floating teeth to ensure proper dental health
-Deworming to prevent the risk of parasite infestation
-Sheath cleaning for male horses to remove excretion and dirt
-Full physical exam
-Providing education on individual nutrition plans for each horse
