When it comes to treatment we are versed in all treatment modalities from conservative to advanced treatments such as PRP/IRAP and Stem Cells.

Prepurchase Exams:

Prepurchase Exams Anchor

While the purchase of a new equine companion is a joyful and exciting time, it is often a time of stress and uncertainty. Our goal at MEVP is to provide you, the buyer, with the most in depth evaluation possible. The results of the exam are carefully weighed and evaluated for the intended use and your needs as the rider. If necessary, additional testing may be indicated including radiographs, blood panels, ultrasound imaging or drug testing.

Preventative Care:

Preventative Care Anchor

This is a extremely important aspect of equine care and management and one that is often overlooked. The four cornerstones of equine preventative care are nutrition, vaccination, dentistry and parasite control. We are proud of our comprehensive Preventative Care Program which addresses all four of these vital cornerstones. With this program, our clients receive 2 ranch call visits per year. During these visits your horse receives physical exams which includes time for you to express any concerns or ask any questions you may have regarding your horse. The horses receive all their core vaccines, a fecal analysis and deworming as well as dental exams and dental care. Geldings also receive a yearly sheath cleaning. Ask the staff at MEVP if a PCP plan is right for you.
