Preventative Care

We help make sure your horse is healthy

Vaccinations, wellness exams, and appropriate dental work all help to ensure your horse is healthy as -- well -- a horse. These are the cornerstones of effective preventative care for your animals, and Reata Equine is dedicated to making these services affordable and accessible for all horse owners.

To help us meet this goal, we offer wellness programs that owners can enroll in for free for preventative care discounts and peace of mind. Preventative care includes physical exams to evaluate body condition, mouth, eyes, ears, legs, feet, back, heart, lungs, blood, sand accumulation, and movement at a trot for any concerns or problems. We’ll also perform feeding practice reviews, necessary vaccinations and a parasite control consultation with a fecal exam. Once we’ve completed all of these examinations, we’ll make sure to give you an explanation for anything we find so that you know exactly how your horse is doing. Regular exams improve the quality of care we are able to provide, which is why we offer special discounts to clients who participate in the wellness program.

Improper hoof balance is the number one cause of equine lameness

Keeping your horse sound is a common problem among horse owners. The best way to prevent lameness is to address potential problems before they become severe.

Reata offers a comprehensive hoof-balance study with radiographic images to our clients. In this study we are able to pinpoint what the future might hold for your horse and how we can work to keep your horse sound for many years.

These radiographs can be beneficial for providing farriers with exact measurements as well as showing change over time with multiple sets of radiographs.

Equine illness can be a time of physical suffering for your horses.

It can also be costly to treat preventable diseases. Reata Equine devotes a significant amount time each year promoting the health of the Southern Arizona horse community through vaccination clinics and education on the need for vaccination. We strongly believe that vaccinations are one of the simplest and most effective forms of preventative medicine.
