Conley and Koontz Equine Hospital Geriatric Wellness Program
The Conley & Koontz Equine Hospital recommends our Geriatric Wellness Program as a preventative measure for early detection and implementation of medical management for the changes your horse is going through physically and physiologically. This program was established as an aid for you and your veterinarian to detect and establish baseline values for some of the most common problems affecting the aged horse. Appropriate medical intervention will allow your horse to live a long and healthy life.
The Geriatric Wellness Program includes:
1. Complete Physical Examination and Oral Examination
2. Lameness evaluation
3. Complete Blood Count and Chemistry Profile
4. Blood Insulin, Glucose, and ACTH
5. Patient Specific Medical Plan:
d. Medical Therapy
e. Nutritional consultation
Based on the initial findings of the physical and oral examination, as well as blood results, our veterinarians will report to you personally any of their findings and recommendations. Some of the findings may direct the veterinarian to perform additional tests and diagnostics for the treatment of your aged horse. These reports and findings serve as a baseline for your horse's health which will direct us for many years to come.
We highly recommend our Geriatric Wellness Program for all horses over 15 years of age.
