Geriatric Medicine

Horses today are commonly living well into their 20’s and even 30’s. Older horses can be happy and productive, but do have special needs. Our veterinarians can help you ease your horses through these “golden” years.

Regular examinations of older horses can allow for early detection of problems, as well as implementation of a management plan for changes associated with the aging process. Early identification of problems and proper veterinary care will help ensure an extended happy and healthy life for your friend. GVEC’s focus on care for aging patients includes:

 

• Physical examination
• Dental care
• Consultation on the special nutritional needs of geriatric horses
• Diagnostic tests for endocrine diseases
• Evaluation and biopsy of tumors
• Evaluation of lameness and arthritic conditions
• Counseling on quality of life and euthanasia decisions
